Made in the USA.
We’re proud to be able to say our merino wool doesn’t have to cross an ocean to end up on your feet.
From day one, Sockwell has consciously chosen to keep their carbon footprint as small as possible rather than shipping components all over the world for the sake of saving a few pennies.
Simply put, the fewer miles their materials and products travel to reach your feet, the less impact they have on our planet.
It’s not just good business—it’s the right thing to do.
Our Relentless Pursuit of Better Ways to Do Business
At Sockwell, we are never satisfied with the status quo. We’re always looking for a better way to do something, and that includes finding new, U.S.-based materials and methods of production. It’s better for our planet, better for our people, and better for you.
Poor circulation can cause various problems, including frequent muscle cramps, fatigue, throbbing pain, and tingling sensation. Compression socks are designed to stimulate better blood circulation in your legs, meaning your feet also receive increased levels of oxygen and other nutrients they need to fuel through the day.
Enhanced blood circulation promotes muscle recovery, allowing your muscles to heal faster after a long day of taking care of patients. Some nurses even wear their Sockwell socks off duty to reduce swelling and boost muscle relaxation.
Varicose and spider veins are not just unpleasant to look at, but they can also cause severe pain and discomfort. Sockwell compression socks are just what your veins need after you’ve spent all day running around looking after your patients. These socks can prevent varicose veins and even help reduce the symptoms of existing ones.
Sitting or standing on your feet all day can lead to fluid buildup in the muscle tissue, resulting in swollen legs. The subsequent pain and discomfort can get in the way of performing your job to your full potential. As Sockwell socks are tighter around the feet and ankles, which is where most of the swelling occurs, the blood is forced to flow upwards, reducing most of the swelling.
At Scrubs of Evans, we outfit medical professionals with comfortable clothing from head to toe without compromising style. Our collection of Sockwell compression socks is no exception to this.
Made with American-grown fine merino wool blends spun with bamboo rayon or alpaca, these socks are incredibly soft and comfortable to wear. Merino wool is also known for its exceptional ability to absorb moisture, regulate temperature, and prevent sweaty and smelly feet. In addition, merino wool is also biodegradable and renewable.
Sockwell Socks also come with built-in elastic bands that keep them in place when you are moving. This means you won’t have to stop and pull up your socks when rushing to save patients. These socks are also fitted with padding to give your feet extra support.
And the best part, Sockwell socks come in a variety of unique styles, colors, patterns, sizes, lengths, and compression levels. Whether your preferred style or the facility dress code, you can easily find a Sockwell sock that matches your style requirements and meets regulations. You can even wear compression socks as a base layer under your regular socks.
We’ve already established that Sockwell socks are comfortable, stylish, and therapeutic. But did you know that they are also very affordable? A pair of Sockwell socks usually cost less than $30, making them one of the most affordable brands of compression socks on the market.
Committed to American Sheep Farmers & to Supporting the American Textile Industry
When we started making socks back in 2008, we made the decision not only to make our socks here in the USA, but to source our wool from American sheep farmers. Very few merino wool sock makers can say the same.
We’re proud of that fact, but we also value transparency. We’re constantly striving to find U.S.-based sources for every component that goes into our socks. For example, we’re currently transitioning to American-made Repreve® recycled nylon, with a goal to have 80% of our total nylon usage converted to recycled nylon by the end of 2021.
It’s all part of our commitment to support local textile companies and farms right here in the U.S. and to reduce our environmental impact.
