Sockettes - Small

Artist: Roy Edwards

These thick wool Cowichan knit socks are sure to keep you cozy on those cold days. Perfect for those days when you just want to curl up in front of the fire or stay in bed. Cold hardwood or cement floors? Problem solved. Cowichan knits come from the Cowichan people of SouthEastern Vancouver Island, British Columbia. They are very popular among BC people and tourists. For over a hundred years Cowichan women (and now men) have been knitting clothes and blankets for their families. Fleece from breeds of sheep such as Dorset, Hampshire and Suffolk provide the entirely natural colors used in authentic Cowichan products, from a creamy white, through brown, to black.

 

The artist Roy Edwards is originally from Kuper Island and is a member of the Coast Salish tribe. Roy and his family reside in Ladysmith, British Columbia where they continue their family venture of knitting genuine Cowichan products. They knit hats, booties, scarves, mittens and sweaters.
