Sock of the Month: “Spring in Japan” Socks

Meander through a cloud of pink blossoms in our "Spring in Japan" socks ...
Featuring Zen Yarn Garden's Serenity 20 yarn!

The ethereal blossoms of cherry trees are celebrated around the world, including in Washington, D.C. whose famous cherry trees were a gift of friendship from Japan in 1912 and 1965. But the most magical place to enjoy the blossoms is in Japan!

Every spring, people across Japan flock to parks, gardens and temples to partake in the annual ritual known as Hanami. This long standing custom of welcoming spring with a picnic and viewing of the beautiful "sakura" blossoms is a wonderful tradition.

In Japan, cherry blossoms are a symbol of clouds and an enduring metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life. With our "Spring in Japan" Socks you can capture the essence of the beautiful blooms to wear year round!

Sock of the Month: “Colorado River” Socks

Explore Grand Canyon in our "Colorado River Socks" ...
Featuring Dream in Color's Smooshy with Cashmere yarn!

The Grand Canyon in northern Arizona, is one of the largest canyons on earth.  The immensity of its landscape is hard to grasp … even when viewed from the best vantage points accessible in Grand Canyon National Park!

At the heart of the 277 mile long canyon runs the Colorado River, whose course through the area was established 5 to 6 million years ago. Since then, the river has been at work creating depths over a mile deep and widths up to 18 miles wide ... and it's still going! It is no surprise that this awe-inspiring canyon is a holy site for the Native Americans who have continuously inhabited the area for thousands of years. 

The Colorado River Socks pay homage to the powerful river that helped shape this natural wonder. To celebrate one of America's favorite parks, our friends Nancy and Veronica at Dream in Color yarns created this gorgeous custom color reflecting the beautiful hues of the canyon ... and then road-tripped to take some terrific pictures!
