Turner & Sons is the premier brand of All Sox Ltd, a family owned, Derbyshire based, sock manufacturer with a pedigree dating back to the 1920s when Fred Turner entered the industry.  Brothers George and Nick Turner, Fred’s sons, are the co-directors and owners of the current iteration of the business. All our socks are of the highest quality.  They have received favorable editorial comment in both the Financial Times and Telegraph Fashion.   The Company uses the finest natural fibres blended with just enough technical yarns for luxurious quality, durability and supreme comfort.  They do not import socks for re-sale. Cotton socks are named after Derbyshire rivers and streams and their wool socks after Derbyshire towns and villages.  Derbyshire is known as the “Cradle of the Knitting Industry”
