Donegal Socks

Donegal Socks are the unique end product of the third generation of a family business involved in the manufacturing of traditional wool socks in the picturesque town of Glenties in Donegal.

A centuries old tradition of sock making, a rare craft which has passed down generations. The natural ruggedness of their products is a reflection of the colours and patterns which reflect the wild and beautiful scenery of this region.
