Sock dolls were popular around the 1900's. Nelson Knitting Mills in Rockford Illinois first made the original rockford red heeled sock in 1890. In 1920 the mill soon began packaging directions for the sock monkeys, with each pair of socks, after a customer fashioned a sock monkey and sent it to the company. The Nelson Knitting Mills was purchased by Fox River Mills in the 1992 and now Fox River makes the Red Heel Monkey Sock.
