Point of View Farm “Farm to Foot” Sami Socks.
Sami socks are a new Point of View Farm to Foot sock style started in 2022. Inspired by love from our farm to your feet.
Mid weight wool socks start with Point of View Farm’s premium Finnsheep Wool. These sheep are bred, born and raised in the Hudson Valley region of New York on grass pastures that were farmed by my friend’s grandfather generations ago. Now we carefully steward this land for future generations and take great pride in our special flock of Finnsheep selected for their wool quality. They grow beautiful high quality wool, mostly grey and shades of brown.
The footbed and heel of these socks are thick cushiony terry loop construction. The terry loop footbed is insulating and full of cushion. It resists wear spots since it is thicker than your normal sock at the sole, heel and toe. That is the area where most socks wear first. Our customers love how long they last. No one has ever commented they were ‘itchy’.
The crew length cuff and top of foot area are traditional flat knit. A touch of lycra to keeps them in place…no slipping socks. I bet many of us have experienced how frustrating a sock that has slipped down is. Experiences like that are what motivate us to come up with better solutions. One of them is the Sami Sock. We know it isn’t going to bring world peace but, they are a made in the USA product and they support the regenerative and responsible agriculture practiced at Point of View Farm. There are many lives who are touched by the process of these socks beyong those right at the farm. The sheep shearer, farm helpers, the hay farmer, yarn mill workers, sock mill workers and on and on. You are indirectly supporting them. Those are a couple of nice solutions you are a part of by purchasing these socks. It is a big story for a pair socks. The Farm to Foot story.
These socks are the authentic natural color of the sheep that grew the wool. The wool is not dyed…true grey wool socks. Approx 80% wool, 15% nylon and 5% Lycra. Recommended care is washing is cold water and hang to dry to maintain shape. You can also put them on sock stretchers/ blockers and block them to your size. Stay tuned for how to order sock blockers with your socks if desired.
