Why You Need the Best Cotton Socks for Kids: the Problem With Most Basics for Toddlers
We can relate to the stressful feeling of shopping for your little one’s basics - like socks, underwear, pajamas, etc. In fact, this exact scenario you’re in right now is where the origins of Q for Quinn begin.
Our founder, Melita, was trying to find socks that were gentle enough for her son’s eczema. During her search, she made an alarming discovery: traditional clothing is riddled with chemicals and compounds that she wouldn’t dare put on her child’s skin. In fact, she found that 90% of baby and kids' socks were found to have harsh chemicals containing BPA and Parabens.
So, rather than compromise on her values and put her son at risk, she decided to create her own eczema socks - free of all the nastiness you’d find in other socks. And, she made adjustments to the overall design of the socks to ensure that even the most sensitive of skin would be content.
Beyond just the health and safety aspect of this conversation, you’ve probably experienced firsthand what a nightmare it can be to try and get your kid dressed in clothing that irritates them. Even if your kid doesn’t have sensory issues, the harsh, itchy materials and irritating toe seams in traditional socks leave your child squirming as you dress them.
The good news? You’re just a few clicks away from getting safe, comfortable, kid-approved socks that your little one is sure to love - and you’ll love them too because you can enjoy peace of mind. So - where can you find the best cotton socks for toddlers?
What Separates the Best Cotton Socks for Toddlers From the Rest?
We recently wrote an article addressing a question we see asked often: why are quality 100% cotton socks so hard to find? The truth is, they are far more expensive to produce - and this leads to manufacturers cutting corners.
It really comes down to the materials used to create the socks: the cotton itself along and the dyes used. If you really want the best cotton socks for kids, then you need to carefully consider these two factors in your search.
Rather than just going with any old cotton, seek out socks that are crafted from GOTS-certified organic cotton. This is considered the gold standard in organic textile manufacturing because it considers the material at every step in the supply chain. From cultivation to manufacturing - you know exactly where your socks have been and what went into creating them.
This standard doesn’t just ensure the socks are free from pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, and other chemical compounds that belong nowhere near your kid. It also ensures that the process of creating the socks was ethical for the workers and safe for the planet. By shopping for GOTS-certified organic cotton, you enjoy peace of mind and you’re doing your part to create a better world.
But, the cotton itself only tells half the story. You also need to consider how the socks are dyed. The impact of azo dyes (which are the most commonly used dye in the clothing industry) can be detrimental not just to your child’s health and well-being, but also to the planet itself.
This type of dye has been linked to certain cancers - and the runoff can get into our waterways. So, you should be sure the socks you buy your little one are either undyed entirely or use azo-free dyes.
Finally, consider the overall design of the sock itself. So many kids suffer from skin sensitivity or sensory issues - and their main complaint is the bulky, agitating toe seam. This is why we’ve done away with it in favor of a flat-toe seam that your kids won’t even realize is there.
