The December 2016 sock, The Highlander is a camp-style sock, spun with specialty speckled yarn that we developed uniquely for this sock. In designing this sock, we were inspired by the rugged beauty of the Appalachian mountains in North Carolina, which are a stone's throw away from our knitting facilities where each pair is made. The Highlander is also a warm and durable sock, making it perfect to wear on your next wintery adventure. We hope you enjoy and stay cozy all winter long. Happy Holidays from the Sock Club Team.
