These cable knit ankle socks are made on one of the last remaining production machines that once made a popular crew high version for Cotton Ginny, an iconic Canadian retailer that went out of business in the late 2000's. We re-introduced the crew sock in 2018 and you loved seeing them again so we developed this shorter ankle version to add to our Actually Made in Canada Collection.
They are available now for the first time ever, manufactured in Ontario, Canada on a production knitting machine from the mid 1900s as part of our Actually Made in Canada collection.
Ankle height is approximately 5" from mid-point of heel to top.
Fits approximate shoe size:
Women’s shoe size 5-9, up to men's shoe size 7 1/2, Euro 35-40
Slub Colours (mixed colour) 80% Cotton, 18% Nylon, 2% Elastic
Solid Colours 75% Cotton, 15% Acrylic, 8% Nylon, 2% Elastic

From avocado to zebra with corgis and llamas in between and a sprinkle of stripes on top, we have you (your feet) covered. At Purple Moose, the Sockologist is IN!
"I went Googling for a Canadian distributor of Darn Tough. I was very excited to find your Ontario based operation AND your actually made in Canada line. I'll be back!"
"Love your socks!"
"My husband is disabled due to back injury and is always cold from his pain meds. He needs to wear socks, but most socks cause pressure in his feet, which causes more pain. I've been trying to find the perfect socks for years. When I saw your socks, I thought I'd try them being cotton, I knew they would be looser but also warm. He says he is spoiled now and only wears his 4 pairs that I bought earlier this year. I figured I'd buy him 4 more for Christmas, and treat my children to some as well. Thank YOU for keeping "made in Canada" alive and well."
