The pre-washed socks are a good quality woven/knitted sock (78% cotton, 20% nylon, 2% spandex) that have a ribbed band that comes just past the ankle. Being black, no stains or "gray water" marks will show. A simple sun with wavy rays brightens each ankle; simple yet such a summer statement! Get them for yourself, if you like. They would also make a wonderful birthday present, or a "just because" for a friend!
My designs usually take a day to several to complete, depending on the detail. I lay down a basic pattern, making sure the paint will not later come off with normal wash & wear. Depending on layering and where wet parts might touch, I allow for dry time after each section is finished. Then, I go over the that basic pattern, again, to make sure the colors are true and bright, again allowing for dry time between each section.
These socks would be a lovely gift to pamper yourself with, though they would also make a great gift for birthday, Christmas, Hanukkah, anniversary or "just because". Don't forget we can include a custom-made card with your gift for just $5.00 https://www.etsy.com/listing/114374278/personalized-steampunk-clockpunk-style?ref=v1_other_1
*This pair size is for bigger kids or small women; about a Kid's Large - Extra Large or Women's Extra Small - Small. Socks do not touch the feet of the model - there are a pair of clean socks worn underneath while modeling.
*I create most of my socks for bigger feet: older kids, women and adults - there just aren't many creative socks on the market for bigger feet!
