I’ve written before about sock dreams coming true when a style we wish for happens or when a favourite sock comes back to us—but this may just be the dreamiest dream to come true yet!
Of course, I’ve got to tease a little.
and a little over three since they were available in an OTK and a thigh high.
But it’s been almost two years since we’ve had them in stock. The yarn for these socks was discontinued and we’ve been on a hunt for a replacement ever since.
But a secret stash of the yarn has been found—enough to make a limited run of both OTK and thigh highs. We won’t have them forever and we’re still looking for a long-term supply of this yarn, but for a short time, this sock dream has come true.
Have you guessed what they are? Join us after the jump for the answer! Read more »
Our Dreamer Socks styles, with their super comfy cuff and surprising stretch, have quickly become a favourite with us Dreamers and all you wonderful sock lovers. This week we’re proud to introduce more delightful, dreamy styles to the line.
I’m most excited about one of our newest styles for a terribly nerdy reason. Jacquard weaving, with its innovative loom (that was basically an early computer!) is a pretty cool thing. Socks are knit, not woven, and it turns out that there is a way to knit, jacquard style! The resulting two-colour patterns have great stretch, beautiful vertical patterns and have swept all us Dreamers off our feet with love. The first jacquard style we introduced has a gorgeous vertical ripple that almost plays optical illusion-like with your eyes.
The brand-newest jacquard style the girly side of me totally squeals over, it’s all ribbons and flowers and springy colours.
What I like best about the jacquard styles is that the inside is almost like terry loops, so they’re crazy cozy, but the stretchy knit doesn’t get overwarm!

Now, our Extraordinary Thigh Highs are already pretty, well, extraordinary—with a foot that fits US Women’s shoe size 6-14 (men’s 4-12), a calf stretch of 24 inches and a cuff stretch of 27 inches! We’ve got them in Striped, we’ve got them in an even longer striped and now (drumroll please), we have our solid-coloured Extraordinary Thigh Highs in an extra-long version that goes up the very tip top of a lot of our legs and solidly over the knee on folks with larger and longer legs. May we proudly present the Extraordinarily Longer Thigh Highs!
If you’ve been looking for a true thigh high, these just might be it! They go to the tippity tops of most legs, they even hit thigh high territory on one of our plus-size testers with 27 inch thigh circumference and a 30 inch inseam, who normally can only wear thigh highs as over the knee socks. If you’ve got longer legs, they won’t go as high, but they’ll still hit respectively above the knee.
In the same theme of new versions of old favourites the wonderful Acrylic Slouch Socks should look familiar! I’ve always been a big fan of the Cotton Slouch Socks, but I may have just found a new love.
Acrylic has some of the same textures as wool, which is why it is so often blended with it. But there’s no wool in these, just super soft acrylic in bright crayon colours.
It’s so exciting how our Sock Dreams styles are growing and I cannot wait to see what we think up in the future. What new Dreamer Sock style are you most excited to try?
We love our lovely logo and we know you do too. But if you want to wear her socks, what styles are the best option?
More logo matching options after the jump!
after thinking one of our favorite Dream Stockings styles was gone for good we have been blessed with lots of new colors of O Marled socks… and just in time for fall weather to start hitting us with chilly evenings and even chillier mornings.
These deliciously thick, ribbed socks stretch to an accommodating 23 inches around at the tops while still fitting those of us with scrawny calves… a true “Dream” stocking if there ever was one!
My inseam is about 30 inches and my thighs are 19 inches around so these come pretty close to the tops of my thighs if I pull them all the way up, but my favorite way to wear them is thickly cuffed just above my knees. Larger/longer legs will have varying results, but as seen in the image for charcoal, as worn by Trina, these can still be a great OTK…
The biggest change with this new batch is that we decided to only do one foot size which we are calling large because it is larger [in the feet] than the small hunter we have leftover from the previous batches, but don’t worry, these fit a shoe size 7 right up to women’s 10 pretty well and we will probably switch that large to “one size” when those hunters are gone. I also think these itch a little more before being washed a few times, which we think is due to the marled bits, I solved it by wearing them over leggings, but really it just took washing them to soften them up.
Ember is my favorite color of these right now, and as I sit here telling you why I love them so much I am tempted to wear them through a second day because I don’t want to take them off!
O for Over-the-knee… that area that can create so much havoc in the sock world.
Depending on both width & height (of both the socks AND your legs, never mind stretch of said socks) an OTK can end up fitting anywhere from just below the knees to right up around your thighs. Why, we even find that can differ from one color or batch to the next of the very same style (it can be enough to drive sock sellers mad!) but we love them and continue to pursue ever better OTK Socks and our Dream Stockings classic is the O Basic.
