Sock of the Month: “Pinnacles” Socks

Get inspired by the surprising beauty of our "Pinnacles Socks"

Featuring Mountain Colors' Bearfoot Yarn!

​The isolated Pinnacles National Park, 2.5 hours south of San Francisco, is famous for its towering peaks formed millions of years ago by volcanic eruptions. The unique landscape allows visitors to journey through oak woodlands, canyon bottoms and rare talus caves. The tall rock spires are teeming with life ... prairie and peregrine falcons, golden eagles and the inspiring California condor!

In January of 2013, Pinnacles was officially designated as a National Park. To celebrate this newest addition to our national parks, our friends at Mountain Colors, have created an earthy custom colorway reflective of the mountainous shrub-land in which the park is located.

A big thank you to Sean's brother, Neville and his wife Jayna for snapping some photos on their recent visit to the park!

Pinnacles Socks

by Amy Loberg

Worked from the toe up, the Pinnacles are a versatile all purpose, boot-style sock. A full gusset and the slipped stitch heel make for a great fit ... and the instep features a simple rib for extra comfort. Inspired by the amazing rock formations found at Pinnacles National Park, the leg pattern is created using simple stitches. The result is a nifty sock for both men and women!​
