Moss Eccles Socks

The inspiration for this design began with a beautiful yarn. The stitch pattern seemed to emerge organically. As soon as Kay saw it she was transported to our favourite picnic spot, Moss Eccles Tarn in the Lake District. 

The lace pattern represents ducks flying in to land on the tarn, and the ripples they make as they land. The Moss Eccles Socks are an engaging yet relaxing design, perfect for a lazy summer afternoon.
