Due to yarn shortages and demand we sold out of our merino wool socks much quicker than expected this season.

The good news, we are working hard on a big restock for January 2023. Sign up below to access the restock first.

What is Shipping Protection?

Q for Quinn provides protection for shipments that are damaged, lost, or stolen. Add Shipping Protection to your cart at checkout to enable protection. 

For any claims please get in touch with us at
For damaged shipments, photos will be required. 

For lost and stolen items, we will have to give 3 business days before a claim can be made, as sometimes the package is simply misplaced and it shows up!

Please note if shipping protection is not selected, Q for Quinn is not liable for any lost, stolen or damaged goods. 

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. 💙

Hard to find merino socks!

It’s difficult to find merino wool socks for little kids, especially ones with the grippy dots on the feet. These ones are beautifully made and my 2 year old was so excited to wear them immediately and loved them. We will also be ordering the midweight socks for colder winter days. Love that this is a local company too!

Perfect for big kids who still want grippy socks!

We love that these socks still have grip. Even at the big sizes. My very picky child loves them and he is hard to please with socks!

Thank you so much for the feedback.

Buttery soft socks- wonderful company!

I recently got a few pairs of merino socks for myself as well as my daughter so we could match. They are SO soft and light, yet my feet never get cold. I love to wear them with my house shoes to keep my feet warm working from home. I also LOVE that my 3 year old’s socks have grips. No more wipe outs during dance parties in the dining room! When I had a question, Melita responded right away and helped me. I’m looking forward to ordering the purple and gray ones for holiday gifts! Highly recommend!!

Thank you so much for your review. It means the world to us.

Perfect for keeping little toes warm

Worked well during a late season camping trip with my two and a half year old. It was reassuring knowing that her little feet would be warm after she kicked off her blankets.
