Bay of Naples Boucle Socks


The story of our Boucle socks is a right good one. Neil, who runs the sock factory we use, called up to tell us of a load of Italian yarns that he had just bought, obviously we were very interested, but then he told us that they were spun in Napoli, then we were very excited. Some of this yarn is from as late as the early ’90s, so a rare piece of footwear history!

The wool itself has a wonderful, bobbly handle to it and is the type of thing you imagine that Diego would wear on his days off. The yarn is a mix of blue, navy blue, grey and light brown yarns, made from 100% wool, so you just know that these will be super snug. A ribbed leg and plain foot, I can’t see you being out of these for the whole winter.

UK 7-12. Made in the UK by Neil, Ian and the gang in the Midlands.
