Sock Subscription of the Month: 5 Great Ways to Fold Your Socks


sock subscription services are an awesome way to get your socks shipped to you each month, ensuring that you never run out of clean socks and that you always have fun new patterns to show off with. But what’s the best way to fold socks, anyway? Here are five great ways to fold your socks so that they fit perfectly into those little purple socks subscription bags.


#1 – Loop Around, Loop Around

Fold your socks just like you would fold a fitted sheet. First, make sure your socks are clean and dry. Roll them into a tight ball and then wrap one end around the top so that it creates a loop at one end. Hold on to this loop with one hand and then take the other side and wrap it around in a loop as well, but overtop of the first loop. Finally, tuck in any loose threads so they don't unravel or come undone later on. This is also called the Ziploc fold because it resembles how you would seal up leftovers in a plastic baggie!


#2 – The Zig-Zag

A sock subscription is a great gift for anyone who loves socks. A monthly subscription is also a great way to get rid of old, mismatched socks and have new, fun ones delivered straight to your door! Each month you will receive five pairs of colorful, funky socks. Best part? Shipping is always free! In our sock subscription box we often include ankle socks, crew socks, dress socks and crazy color dress socks. There are currently two subscriptions available for men or women. With either one you'll get fresh new hosiery at least once per month with no additional costs. For every pair purchased from our sock store we donate one pair through an organization in need - so not only do you look good but you're doing good too!


#3 – The Triangle

Some people say that they can't be bothered with folding their socks. It's true, it takes a little more work than just throwing them into a drawer. But if you fold your socks right, you'll save yourself time when looking for something in your sock drawer. Plus, if you're gifting them to someone or putting them away for later use, it's nice to have them neatly folded.


#4 – The Monkey's Fist

The Monkey's Fist is a knot that is used as a weight at the end of a rope. It is typically used as a heaving line or in pick-and-carry work, but also known for its use in rock climbing. This knot can be tied using either two separate ropes or one continuous rope.
The Monkey's Fist is an ideal knot for those who want to make use of every inch of their rope and it provides enough weight for most situations. The Monkey's Fist has a long history and was often used by sailors as protection against pirates on ships. The Monkey's Fist knots have been found dating back to World War II, with some sources reporting them being used since ancient times.


#5 – The Left Handed Monkey's Fist

This sock-folding technique is one that can take a little bit of time, but it's worth it. The name Left-Handed Monkey's Fist comes from the shape that this fold creates. It's perfect for those who have a lot of socks in their drawer and want to keep them all together. The shape looks like two U shapes connected by a piece of string.
