It’s been nearly two years since I first told you about Sock Dreams, and I continue to love this business enough to share an update. Sock Dreams now has an entire page devoted to eco friendly socks and related wearables available in hemp, recycled, and organic fibers. I couldn’t be happier! I was initially drawn to Sock Dreams when a friend recommended their website to me and I realized that there were options beyond jackets for perpetually cold people (yes, I am one of those southern Californians who complains about the cold). In addition to reasonable prices, shipping is always free, which is no small feat for a small business. I was hooked after my first purchase.
Usually I’m reluctant to make online clothing purchases because I never know how the item will fit, but the folks at Sock Dreams try on their products as often as possible and detail accurate sizing information on their webpage, including whether a product runs smaller or larger than its label suggests and how generous the stretch is. Today I am wearing these dark red Chevron Sleeves, made from 68% recycled cotton. The following sizing tip turned out to be precisely correct for my long arms: “On people with smaller arms, these will probably go up to the middle of the upper arm, while folks with longer or wider arms will find that these come to rest comfortably at the elbow and bell out around their fingers.” With other descriptions that remark on whether the socks will dent the thighs, which sizes of feet should wear them, and more, Sock Dreams makes online shopping a breeze for environmentalists of all sizes. I really appreciate having an expectation of how the pictured products will fit me! Thus far I’ve had no surprises.
I got to visit this charming, cozy little sock haven a year ago when I was staying in Portland, and the employees were friendly and helpful. The photography on their website is beautiful and just may make you want to wear things you wouldn’t have notice sitting on a shelf. Now that Sock Dreams has a whole page devoted to stylish, environmentally friendly socks and more, I will have even more fun shopping.
