Even with the advent of mustard as a popular shade, yellow socks and stockings are as rare as sunshine in the Pacific Northwest winter. Like a lot of hues that aren’t widely represented, where yellow does show up it shows up in every version it can, from crayon to Dijon.
As usual, I’m not trying to define yellow. If you want some poem-like lists of names for shades of yellow, Wikipedia and the Color Sorting Wiki are kind of amazing resources. I’ve done my best to accurately represent these hues in relation to each other, so you can gather a good idea of what matches and what doesn’t.
There aren’t that many yellows to look at, so let’s dive in! You’ll see as we go along that yellow tends to fall into crayon, gold, mustard and not quite mustard.
Surprisingly, these yellows were more of a pain to edit than the Teal/Turquoise last month, and I think the shots of each colour type in the second half of this post is the most accurate to what they look like in person. You know the little kid game where you hold a dandelion or buttercup under your chin and if it reflects yellow on your face you like butter? According to how much yellow reflects, everything likes butter.
Dream Stockings & Dreamer Socks
From the pastel of Banana to rich Marigold, our house brand styles touch almost every type of yellow except crayon-pure.
Sticking to crayon yellows for their nylon styles, they only dip into golden tones when using cotton, like in the Smiley Faced Crews.
No surprise, Tabbisocks rocks this under-represented colour, focusing mostly on mustards of varying shades. They call the Dijon delight of their Harajuku Arm Warmers “Yellow”, but it’s more spread than sunshine in shade.
I’m splitting up the assorted single representatives of brands into two subgroups! First, our crayon shades:
Now the mustardy-dijon:
After the jump, we’ll take in all this sunshine and break down the hues! Read more »
While May might not be what you think of as harvest season, we think that with all of June’s Pride celebrations right around the corner this is the perfect time to expand on one of our most popular lines of socks: Harvest Rainbows!
These colorful thigh highs flew solo for the first few years of their reign, but with the recent addition of junior and youth sizes it’s looking like we might just have dynasty on our hands (or feet, if you will)!
Well a simple dynasty is not enough for us. Nope! That’s why we’ve added two more unisex, adult-sized options: Knee Highs and Crews! You see, while we adore thigh highs and hope you do too, we also don’t think that should be a requirement of rocking awesome, muted rainbows. Besides, they’re so perfect for the Pride festivals that take place during the rather warm month of June, it just made sense to make them in more Summery lengths!
With three foot sizes and multiple lengths, these rainbow socks are getting to be just as diverse as the people that they represent!
This time, we are packing up our sock stock and heading back out east to The Windy City! That’s right Chicago Dreamers, this coming weekend, April 25-27th we will be at the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo- or as they call themselves C2E2.
Stop by our booth, #1180 and #1182 and come feel and see all the socks you’ve coveted, contemplated and drooled over from our site.
See you there, Chicago!
