The Pacific Northwest is a rainy place. While people hurry gore-tex clad through city streets, in the mountains the snow accumulates, blanketing massive icefields that stretch north to Alaska.
These pretty lacy socks are inspired by glacier-fed torrents which flow from mountaintops to sheltered coves, carving out watery paths as they gurgle and rumble to the sea.
