Philosockphy's Sock of the Month: Five Creative Ways to Fold Your Socks


Chances are, you’ve learned how to fold your socks at some point in your life, but did you know there are actually plenty of other ways to do it? Check out this list of five creative ways to fold your socks, which will give you something new to impress friends and family with every time you get dressed.


The Reverse French

The simplest way is to start at the top and work your way down. You fold one part over, then you fold that part over again. This continues until you have a nice neat bundle. Be careful not to overlap too much or else your socks won't fit in your drawer.
A different method is called the reverse French. Start by folding each sock in half, toe-to-heel, then fold them in half again so they are toe-to-toe with two folds going on at once. When you're done with this step, you should be able to hold all of your socks together in one hand while they're still folded up.


The Butterfly

So you don't know how to fold your socks? Here are five creative ways that we came up with. We also have a sock of the month club, which sends a new, fun pair of socks every month. Our favorite way is the butterfly fold, where you pinch both toes and then fold it over, so it looks like a butterfly. The next two are similar but easier and faster; first, fold your sock in half with one leg on each side and then roll up from there. The last is called the 'hot dog' because it looks like a hot dog bun when you pull them apart- grab one leg and then pull it through the other leg until they're even with each other.


The Puffball

1. The Puffball - a sock subscription service for guys who want something different than all those boring, old socks! 2.

The Accordion

Wrap your socks around your hand and then roll them up like an accordion. This method is perfect for those who have more than one pair of socks, since you can just stack them on top of each other. You can also use this method with a smaller stack if you have only one or two pairs.
If you're looking for something a little more formal or have a particular reason for folding your socks in an accordion shape, try these instructions instead: Wrap the first sock around your hand and place it on top of the second sock. Begin rolling both socks up around your palm before placing them against each other so that they look like they are hugging each other.


The Snail

1. The Snail is a sock club that sends you one pair of socks per month, for a whole year. 2. We don't know about you, but we never wear all the socks from our sock drawer at once! 3. This way, you'll have a fresh pair every month for one year! 4. The best part about it? You can choose which pattern you want each month! 5. Just like this cool yellow and grey pattern that we're sending out in November! 6.
