Payment & Promotions
You can only use one discount code at a time.
We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover and Paypal.
First time codes are valid on orders of $30 or more. They are not valid on digital gift cards or subscriptions.
Product & Sizing
Yes, we offer select styles in US Women's 14+ and US Men's 13+. Filter by size when shopping to find your styles!
Reference our size guide to find your fit!
We donate $1 per pair, $1 per candle and $5 per sweatshirt to our nonprofit partner.
We recommend washing with cold water and drying on low heat. This helps reduce shrinkage and energy consumption, that’s good for the socks and for the planet!
Our current socks are composed of 80% Fairtrade Organic Cotton, 18% Recycled Polyester, 2% Elastane. In the past, they were composed of 75% Fairtrade Organic Cotton, 23% Recycled Polyester, and 2% Spandex, so some products may reflect this on their packaging.
Organic cotton is not treated, so laundering on low heat will cause some shrinkage during the first wash. This is normal! After the first wash, they won’t shrink anymore.
Our black string on single-pair packaging does a little more than replace plastic waste. It also makes it easy to open! Instead of cutting it, pull the loose end of the string, and it will release the pair from the packaging easily.
