It's All in the Spin
Weaving together sustainable practices and eye-popping patterns, this snuggly pair is made from 100% recycled cotton yarn that's been re-spun into a groovy charcoal and cerulean print. Offering a subtle nod to their Pacific Northwest provenance, they were inspired by the swerving streets and natural elements that distinguish Terwilliger Parkway, a collection of roadside green spaces created by famed landscape architects John and Frederick Law Olmsted.
The process begins with remnants from t-shirt factories that would normally be destined for the landfill, which are then ground down and re-born as skeins of vibrant yarn, a practice that eliminates the need for farmland and the harmful dyes and chemicals used to treat virgin cotton. The manufacturers also adhere to a "zero waste" policy, utilizing scraps for new products and making the most of the resources at hand. We think the Olmsteads would be proud. Made in Portland, Oregon.
For every pair of socks sold, Sidekick donates a pair to someone in need.
