Care Instructions

We sell many different brands of cool novelty socks, most of which feature bright colors and detailed patterns. Each company offers different care recommendations, which you can find here, with brands listed alphabetically.

In general, your safest bet is to wash your fun socks in cooler water, turned inside out, then hang or lay flat to dry or tumble dry low. This helps preserve their color, shape and quality for as long as possible.
