Maximum value of goods that can be re-shipped is $1000.
Why can’t we ship “regular” mail, you might wonder?
Because of the nature of our products and packaging (which aren’t always flat) we don't have the options of regular or media mail. (Not to mention: regular mail is also untracked and takes 2 times longer to reach you! And who wants to wait longer for their goodies to arrive?)
“Why do I have to pay for shipping? I’m used to getting free shipping!”
While we offer C$9.50 / USD $8 shipping on orders under C$95, it REALLY costs us closer to C$12 on average to ship within North America. We know it sounds crazy — but we pay the difference out of pocket so that we can offer the best flat rate to you!
It’s tough being a small retailer (we are just 3 women!) up against the “free shipping movement” of our bigger competitors. But we’re doing our best, and we’re grateful for your understanding. 💙
This set of socks is based on our original design and composition.
80% organic cotton — Better for the planet, better for workers, and better for your family.
18% polyamide or recycled polyester— Polyamide is a common type of polymer that’s used to increase fabric strength and durability. All of our materials are approved by GOTS and pass strict requirements for the absence of any harmful chemicals. Some of our products now use recycled polyester to strengthen the sock. This product is also approved by GOTS.
2% spandex — For stretch and strength.
- Non-toxic, azo-free dyes — Some azo dyes (also known as direct dyes) can break down and release chemicals called aromatic amines, some of which have been shown to cause cancer. We use only non-toxic, environment-safe dyes that have no risk of degrading and releasing harmful compounds.
- GOTS "Made with 80% organic ingredients". Certified by Ecocert Greenlife. 256894 Q for Quinn Inc.
Care: For longer-lasting socks, wash cold and lay flat. ← Too busy for all that? We got you, Mama. Just wash cold and tumble dry on low heat.

Very high quality, I don't think we'll go back to regular socks....
I recently received the Q for Quinn socks in the fall Jilly Box and loved them. I then ordered two more pair from their company and I’m very happy with my purchase. Having a larger foot (size 10 ladies shoe) most socks are not long enough for my foot, however with Q for Quinn socks the foot of the sock fits perfectly. This feature along with their creative designs and natural material make it a definite go to for a great pair of socks.
I’ve only had my socks for a few weeks. Bought them to help with my eczema. I haven’t had them long enough to say if they truly help with that but I will say I used to have to take my shoes off during the day and itch my feel and I haven’t had to do that since getting these. I really like them. I’d love to see some ankle socks in generic colors. Also, (getting greedy here) but no show socks!!! I wear lots of cute tennies to work and hate when my socks shows:). Already recommended to my friend who’s kid also has eczema.
Thank you for this wonderful review.
It's not often that something bought online surpasses my hopes and expectations when it arrives - but these socks did! They have a lovely, cheerful design and they're such great quality. I'm sensitive to smells and these have none that chemical new sock smell so they'll also be gentle on my sensitive skin. I'm so happy to have found great quality socks that are produced responsibly and won't cause irritation. I'm ordering more soon!
Thanks so much for taking a time to write this wonderful review.
This is the second time I ordered organic socks from Q for Quinn. They do not disappoint. The only issue is that the size I need is often gone for my favorite style.
