We clearly love socks here, but some socks we love more than others. “Dreamers Recommend” highlights the current favorite style of one of our Sock Dreamers.
Dreamer Name: Trina and Brigid
Current favourite style: Harajuku Super Loose Socks (they both agreed on a favourite, and I have to say this is one of my faves too!)
Did you like this sock when we first started carrying it, or did you hate it and grow to love it?
Trina: I was not so sure about these when they first came in. At that point I still associated slouchy socks with some particularly unfortunate outfits I wore in elementary school. But they asked me to model a pair and one I had them on I was sold!
Brigid: I loved them from the very first moment I saw them. No kidding! The Olive, Dark Khaki, and Ruby are gorgeous, perfect colors. They definitely elicit that ‘is it weird that I am SO ridiculously excited about a pair of socks’ feeling from me. They’re like the perfect hoodie sweatshirt that makes you excited for fall, for coziness on a crisp day, drinking coffee on the front stoop feeling perfectly bundled to enjoy being outside and watching the slanted Fall light that’s soon going to be electrified by cold breath and long walks, cider, and whatever else those unavoidable expectations are that come along with autumn mornings. It’s just that season change stirs everything up and refreshes our outlook, right? …season change and these socks apparently. Carried away? Maybe, but that’s why these are my hands down, all-time favourite socks. Read more »
We get to be sponsors of some of the most fun things! Coming up on September 10th through 12th is the Muddy Boot Organic Festival, a celebration of organic and sustainable living in Portland, Oregon.
Sustainable options are very important to us. To help us define and update our environmental policy, we asked the City of Portland’s Department of Sustainability to evaluate our operations and then help us address areas for improvement. Among other things, they recognized our use of biodegradable mailing materials, bi-annual pick up of items not accepted at curbside recycling, and our use of US mills and recycled cotton since we began production in 2004. They made fantastic suggestions, which we quickly adopted, such as the adjustment of lighting levels in our warehouse.
And our dedication extends to our socks! Our DreaM Stockings use recycled cotton and our Dreamer Socks are made from regenerated fibers. In our Eco Friendly collection are more styles and suppliers we’ve found to support our vision, from RocknSocks‘ use of regenerated fibers to ToeSox’s organic cotton. We also carry EG Smith’s ECO line, which donates portions of the profits to environmental organizations that support an end to global warming.
In celebration of the oncoming change of season, here are a few of my favourite eco-friendly styles, in autumnal oranges, perfect for kicking around the changing leaves:
If you’re in the area, come to the Muddy Boot Organic Festival and check out the music, local food and workshops on sustainable living. We like to think it starts with your socks.
I’m pretty sure you guys all get as excited as we do about new things. New styles, new designs, and (to me) the most exciting of all, NEW COLORS!!
Liz and I are always at our most excitable when we’re playing with colors for new stripes. With the Dreamy Knees already such a hit with everyone, obviously we had to add more color combos! Sea Breeze is a big favorite with everyone at headquarters. The nice light blues and yellows conjured very different mental images depending on who you talked to! For some, sailing on a calm lake. For others, sunshine and clouds at the beach. To some they gave more of a cold impression, like a sunny day in the arctic. I’m always fascinated by the ideas invoked by pretty color combinations, and the Sea Breeze stripes are excellent for that!
But then we get a very different vibe from the Sundae stripes.
Delicious frozen treat or warm cherry pie? Possibly a rich raspberry truffle? Most of us thought food when we saw these delicious stripes, although possibly we were just hungry that day. Apart from food though, they make me think of warm coziness, which is why I had to go pester my snuggly cats to get pictures. Sir Edmund wasn’t too happy about it (he’s kind of a grump), but Morty didn’t seem to mind.
Ok I’m not sure why these are called Warning Nets either, But they have lots of stretch and are even long enough for me, which is a rarity for pantyhose.
The nets were kind of held in place by my shorts but they didn’t seem to be pulling downward too much. A lot of fishnet pantyhose tend to get saggy on me in seconds so these are looking much better than the usual.
These are great if you want your legs to appear slimmer *they made my legs almost scary slim looking lol* and they have solid toes for toe strangulation prevention.
The Seamless Warning Net Pantyhose get a thumbs up from me for being awesome looking and pretty good fitting… even if they take a while to get on…lol
