woolen socks, Donegal, Ireland

Woolen socks, Donegal, Ireland.

These Socks are the unique end product of the third generation of a family business involved in the manufacturing of traditional wool socks in Donegal tweed colours. The rugged patterns of mountains and moor intertwine with hues of wild sea and blue sky in the patchwork weave of colour that is Ireland’s Donegal. People visit from many lands for peace, tranquility and renewal, and watch a centuries old tradition of sock making, a rare craft which has passed down  generations. The natural ruggedness of our product is a reflection of the colours and patterns which reflect the wild and beautiful scenery of this region.

Donegal Hosiery in situated in the picturesque town of Glenties on the North West coast of Ireland surrounded by the Bluestack mountains.

The town of Glenties is synonymous with sock and knitwear manufacture for many hundreds of years. In fact the film ‘Dancing at Lughnasa’, starring Meryl Streep and written by Brian Friel, is based on the town of Glenties, where the Mundy sisters on whom this play and film were based earned their living knitting socks for the local factories.

Today almost all the traditional skills have gone, however the Breslin family are the third generation of a family business endeavouring to hold on to the skills that their forefathers bore and continue to manufacture socks in the town of Glenties for the home and export market.

The rugged patterns of mountains and moor intertwine with hues of wild sea and blue sky in the patchwork weave of colour that is Ireland’s Donegal. Great pride is taken to keep the tradition alive in every pair we manufacture for your pleasure.
