Love Local: Wicked Wool Socks

You guys.. I'm not sure if you realized, but tomorrow is December! I almost can't believe it. Most years I really have a handle on the Christmas shopping and decorating and overall preparing, but so far this year I am way behind schedule. I hauled out the boxes of decorations this weekend and got a little start on the mantle, but as for gifts, I haven't got the one. I'm not going to panic yet though.. there is still plenty of time, and I have a few ideas for my special someones.

If you are anything like me and will be looking for the perfect stocking-stuffers, you need to check this out!

Wicked Wool Socks is a 100% Newfoundland & Labrador owned and operated company with a goal to have you 'right cozy' in some WICKED WOOL SOCKS™ sporting your favorite NL sayings.

The company was started by Rob Purchase, a web developer for local small businesses, who also runs some of his own e-commerce sites. He had the idea to make some socks with funny saying to give as a gift to a friend, then realized that they would be popular with many Newfoundlanders!

Here is the product description from the website (
"Deez wicked wool socks are made to keep your feet warm and comfortable at work, out and about, up at da cabin, and on da way to yoga. Made from tough wool and fabrics for long wear and can be trown in da washer and dryer."

These aren't just any ol' wool socks.
"Deez are da good kind dat are not too tick and and not too tin and don’t itch your feet." Also, "They are One size fits all adults, so ladies, add a sock under neet if your feet are right small."

Newfoundlanders are all over the place. These socks would be a great gift idea for a loved one living away.. or just buy 'em for yourself! With tons of saying to choose from, you are bound to find one that fits just right! Maybe your Mom always said you were "Stund". They've got that. Maybe your older brother used to call you a "Torment". Got that. Maybe you're always going around like a "Streel", or your boyfriend calls you a "Piece A Gear". Got that, and that. You need these socks.

Here are some of my favourites:

"Yes B'Y"

 "Froze" .. because I was.

"At Da Cabin"

  1. I am obsessed with these. Askin' Mudder to send some to me in Kazakhstan. Do Santa come to Kazakhstan? Please God...

  2. I ordered several pair a month ago, mostly based on this article, and the money came out of my account right away but so far no socks, no confirmation of my order, nothing at all. Their website hasn't been updated. Has anyone else had a good experience?

    1. Oh no! Ruth, I'm sorry to hear about the delay. Have you received your socks yet?! I know tons of people who placed an order before the Christmas deadline, and they arrived on time. Let me know if you are still waiting on yours.. I will see what I can do!

  3. I'm ordering a whole bunch for this Christmas and am wondering if you by any chance know the promo code for this year?

  4. When your website or blog goes live for the first time, it is exciting. That is until you realize no one but you and your. merino wool fabric

  5. Your article is very good. Thank you very much for seeing such a good article, and hope to see your better article again, thank you.
