    Penine Outdoor socks were made by a firm called FW Bamkin, mainly military suppliers until recent closure and now willing to sell large quantities of ramaining stock! I know this from the Thincats web site where lenders hope to earn a return by backing companies like FW Bamkin. The brand and factory building are still for sale too I believe, although the machines have gone.
