The story of Sock Monkeys can be traced back to the early 1930s, when the Nelson Knitting Company added the now-famous red heel to its socks. When used to make the puppets, the red heel would form the monkey's distinctive mouth.
The Rockford, Illinois-based company eventually discovered that its socks were being used to make sock puppets. By 1955, Nelson Kitting had been awarded a patent on the puppets. Afterwards the company began including a sock monkey pattern in each pack of socks.
