Ireland wouldn't be green enough to be called "The Emerald Isle" without a lot of rain, and that kind of weather develops a special kind of people—who make a special kind of sock! Bridgedale is based at the tip of the Strangford Lough, near Belfast and they have been knitting socks since 1910. Many of us have pairs that we've had for years—they're that tough and hardwearing! But you can't beat their comfort, from a fine blend of merino wool and synthetic fibers. Your foot's new best friend!
