Welcome to the The Darn Good Sock Company.
All the socks on this site are completely handmade by myself on an Antique 'Harrison Sun' Sock Knitting Machine. This 'Machine' is run by hand power not motor, it requires time, patience and a great deal of concentration. They have a medium length of leg, shaped heel for comfort and a seamless toe. There is no elastic to restrict circulation.
These socks are all made for a purpose, you may want absolute luxury bed socks which are made from 100% Cashmere or Alpaca or more active everyday socks which will take more wear. Have a browse through the site, I am constantly buying new yarns and colours. so this site will be updated regularly. Feel free to contact me if you have an idea or requirement, or just can't find your size! I can make up an order fairly quickly for you.
