– Process –
Every sock sold by Morrow’s is designed by Philip Morrow and manufactured in the Midlands. The factory used is a fourth generation business, having been in hosiery industry since 1895. They are one of the few remaining independent hosiery manufacturers in this country.
After researching the sock and hosiery Philip became aware of the trademark for a high quality sock: the 'hand-linked' toe. This is the process of closing the toe seam by matching the stitches on either side of the unfinished sock. These stitches are linked together to provide the wearer with an essentially seamless toe. This is the alternative to machine linking which overlocks the seam and often causes discomfort and irritation when wearing well fitted shoes. All of the socks sold by Morrow's are made using this traditional method which requires considerable skill.
