The Dormington Cushion Sole Cotton Shooting Sock
We introduced the Dormington for a number of reasons. It is knitted from premium, soft combed Egyptian cotton which dyed and spun in the UK - cotton yarn is becoming more and more popular. Cotton is easy to wear, durable (we add a little nylon too), easy to care for and comfortable next to sensitive skin.
The Dormington sole has a cushioned sole - this is a padded sole knitted with hundreds of terry loops. The terry loops allow increased comfort, greater insulation whilst not being as bulky as a full cushion foot. We have finished the Dormington with a hand-linked toe, which is a very traditional way of joining the seam of the sock. A hand-finisher will skillfully match each individual stitch to create a smooth surface.
