50's style handmade sock monkeys  $110

We use the traditional Red Heel Socks


The Red Heel socks where first manufactured in 1890 by The Nelson Knitting Mills in Rockford Illinois

In the 1900's during the war and the great depression, mothers started crafting these socks into sock monkeys and other animals for their children. These quality socks were intended and used as work socks, but they became so much more when the Sock Monkey was born. In 1920 Nelson Knitting Mills started to include the directions for the Sock Monkeys with every pair of red Heel Socks
