Questions and Answers

What sizes do the socks come in?

Tibetan Socks are unisex and can fit children's to adult sizes. Because they are knit from thick wool and lined in fleece, they are meant to be worn as a slipper sock without shoes (but can fit in some roomier boots).

If you are in between sizes, we recommend choosing the larger size.

M (fits women's sizes 8.5-10 or men's 6.5-8) - Measures 10" heel to toe / EU size 38 - 40

L (fits women's sizes 10.5-12 or men's 8.5-10.5) - Measures 10.5" heel to toe / EU 41 - 43

How do I wash the socks?

Turn inside out, hand or machine wash on gentle with cold water, use wool shampoo or other wool detergent. Lay flat to dry.

Where do the socks come from?

Tibetan Socks are hand made by house wives in villages around the Kathmandu valley. This generations-old handicraft provides supplemental income for their families and allows them to stay home with their children.

Can I wear my Tibetan Socks with shoes?

Because the socks are knit from heavy wool and lined in fleece, they are more like a slipper and too bulky for most tight shoe and sneaker styles. They add approximately another full shoe size to your foot.
