Hudson’s Hill Knits Its Warp Ragg Sock From Indigo Yarns

The great thing about our niche corner of fashion, is that no matter how simple something may seem, there is often years of R & D and an insane amount of care and knowledge bound up in the final product. You might think something like an indigo-dyed boot sock might be simple, but not when Hudson’s Hill is working their magic.

The Warp Ragg Sock from Hudson’s Hill uses a dye technique developed with funding from Wal-Mart‘s Made in USA initiative. The pad foam dye technique is extremely low waste and Hudson’s Hill was fortunate enough to snag a few boxes of the low-waste yarn.

Plied together and then knit on double-cylinder knitting machines, all in North Carolina, the socks come in a 6-ply midweight and a 7-ply heavyweight. As this yarn would have otherwise been used for warp threads in denim, they’re an appropriate choice for the denim-lovers among us.

With just 100 pairs were made per weight,  you’ll want to move fast to get your own heavy-duty boot socks, with just as much fade potential as your favorite jeans.

Available for $32 at Hudson’s Hill
