Perfectly Imperfect Socks

Imperfect SocksIf you visit the sock section of our store, you’ll notice some Wigwam socks are marked “Slightly Imperfect.” Are these socks just as good as “perfect” ones? Yes! They’re cheaper too.

Wigwam socks are held to a high standard and each pair is inspected individually to make sure it meets the Wigwam quality standards. Because wool is a natural fiber, sometimes there are little imperfections, like a pull here or a missing thread there, that makes a sock not up to snuff. However, these socks are still great socks! If you’re anything like us, you’ve worn socks until they were falling off your feet–why be bothered by a cosmetic difference between an imperfect sock and one without that little quirk that makes it a “second”? Save a few bucks and buy the imperfect sock, we say!

We love Wigwam’s commitment to quality, however, and know that the slightly imperfect socks are such great quality we can still rely on them. Wigwam believes in honest and transparent business practices, which is why they go to the trouble of inspecting each and every sock they sell. They also are a driving force in bringing fair and profitable manufacturing to the United States. Their wool is almost exclusively sourced in America from American wool growers and they support domestic yarn spinners whenever possible. They believe in the future of American business, lobbying for responsibility limiting imports. As they say on their website, “Every sock we make is knit right here at home in the U.S.A. It’s the right way and it’s the best way.”

If you’re looking for a sock of a specific kind, Wigwam has a neat tool on their website that allows you to narrow down their selection based on factors like sock height, performance, and what you’ll be doing. Once you’ve got a sock in mind, come and check out our wide selection. We have lots of types of socks, even those perfectly perfect kind, and can help you find the right sock for your feet and activity needs.
