Description

Festoon your feet with rats!

These pixel rat socks were designed by Dylan Edwards and manufactured in the United States by Sock Club Custom.

They are fully knit, not printed, so the design will last for as long as the sock lives (or longer, if you convert them into arm warmers after you wear out the heel).

Medium weight fabric (thicker than a dress sock, thinner than an athletic sock). Because of their high cotton content, these socks stay soft even after repeated washings!

Material: 75% cotton, 21% nylon, 4% lycra. Soft! Comfortable!

Care instructions: wash in cold water with like colors, tumble dry low, do not bleach or iron

=====================================
THE HISTORY OF THE PIXEL RAT SOCK
=====================================

Way back in high school, I'd created pixel art of a rat-infested dungeon for a D&D game I was running. I was looking for something else when I ran across a printout of this dungeon map, and I posted a photo of the pixel rat swarm on my social media for purposes of general amusement.

A great many people commented that the rat swarm would look good as a fabric print, and several people suggested socks as a possible implementation. I happen to wear a lot of eccentric socks myself, so I set about researching how to produce a small run of custom socks.

After checking out a bunch of different possible production partners, I settled on Sock Club Custom, since they offered high cotton content custom socks that are designed manufactured in the United States, and whose cotton is also sourced from the U.S.

I worked with them to nail down the final sock design based on my original pixel rat art and my preferred color choices, and voila! A small run of custom pixel rat socks became reality.

Awesome socks. The report back to me from my gift receiver is the socks (and rats) are adorable, and the socks are comfy. Thanks!
