Dispatches from the Sock Kingdom

Now Nelly Noble has made a sock monkey or two in her day. Being the crafty woman she is, however, she wasn’t content stitching up just any old run-of-the-mill sock critter. Instead, she set her imagination and talents to creating her own miniature wild kingdom, and has since transformed countless socks into uncommon soft toys. (She’s even made a sock zebra.) Nelly presides over her menagerie from her studio in Washington state, where she dispatches her animals to deserving children who will give them good homes and take them on pretend safaris.

We’re pleased as can be to be offering a selection of giraffes, sock-a-phants and little bears over in the shop. Each is a one-of-a-kind piece, so once it is gone we will have to wait and see what she comes up with next.
