We started working with a local sock knitting mill almost a decade ago. When we first met, they thought we were weird for requesting unbleached yarns, and also for wanting them boarded but unwashed.
After explaining how bleach and peroxides erode yarn and also how finishing sprays wash down drains, by avoiding these, we can improve the impact and increase durability; creating goods with purpose is our mainstay.
But now, they know what to expect from us in terms of requests, and we get to make beautiful, 100% North Carolina made hosiery for the shop.
This iteration of tube socks is about as classic as it gets. As Justin James of Opie Way navigates through iterations of collaborative sneakers with the store, it just made sense to us both to start with the origin; here's a natural unbleached yarn and a jet black, milled 30 minutes from the store.
The Classic Tube Sock is a one-size fits most. We say that because it has no heel, therefore it can fit any size, however we recommend the use for sizes adult 5 and up, to guarantee a good fit.
For sport, pleasure, or just around the house to keep warm, these are also a great addition to a pair of Opie Way x HH black canvas sneakers, too!
