Spinifex Socks


Published in The Handmade Sock Society 4


The Spinifex Socks pay tribute to the sturdy, indispensable Australian Spinifex grass. This pattern will keep you on your toes with a toe-up construction method. The wedge toe, heel flap and gusset lead into a star stitch and twisted rib panel along the top of the foot and front of the leg, finishing with a twisted rib cuff. The Spinifex Socks comes with three sizes, so you can choose your best fit.

Spinifex is not ashamed to be its stubborn, spiky self. It demands and deserves our respect. These humble but hardy grasses grow across the Australian landscape. On the coastline, Spinifex holds tight to the sand dunes, protecting them from erosion and sending its deep roots down into the earth to brace against storms and winds and tides. Out in the bush, Spinifex is a keystone of its environment, offering shelter and protection to vulnerable wildlife. Experts say that if it ever disappeared, so would dozens of other species.
