Donegal Socks - Brand Profile


While I am away home (to Donegal) this weekend, I thought no better time than now to post about this. 

Donegal hosiery is located in Glenties, a lovely small town on Ireland's North West coast, encircled by the Bluestack Mountains. 

For hundreds of years, the town of Glenties has been associated with the production of socks and knitwear. In reality, the film 'Dancing at Lughnasa,' starring Meryl Streep and scripted by Brian Friel, is based on the town of Glenties, where the Mundy sisters, who inspired the play and film, made living knitting socks for the local industries.

Socks from Donegal, Ireland are the one-of-a-kind end result of a family business that specialises in the production of traditional wool socks in Donegal tweed colours. In the patchwork tapestry of colour that is Ireland's Donegal, the jagged patterns of mountains and moor merge with colours of the untamed sea and blue sky. People come from all over the world to find serenity, tranquillity, and regeneration, as well as to see a centuries-old tradition of sock making, a rare craft that has been passed down through the years. 

I am excited to share that we now stock them online and in-store!
