Made this way for more than half a century
The ‘classic’ Purdey sock comes from Scotland.
There, the body, heel and toe are crafted on a cylindrical ‘knitting machine’. This is a beautiful work of mechanical movement, originally built in the 1950s and still making Purdey socks to this day.
These remarkable machines are kept alive by skilled hands. Parts are fashioned in-house, and built to last for decades.
