For those of you with questions or just a general thirst for knowledge, we've outlined some helpful details for you below. Still can't quench your thirst? Email us at email@example.com, Samson, our Chief Customer Service Squid, is more than happy to answer your questions.
THOUGHTS BEHIND THE DOTS
The application of silicone, specifically silicone dots or "squiddy dots", was very intentional. We knew we liked the idea and look of dots because they resemble the suction-like cups on squids, but we also wanted to take into account circulation. Rather than a continuous line or band of silicone, we wanted to create this dot pattern with gaps between each dot to allow for better blood flow. Our goal is to create a sock that stays on without constriction.
RECOMMENDED WASHING INSTRUCTIONS
Wash before use. Gentle cycle with like colors, no bleach and no tumble drying. Did you just read this, roll your eyes, laugh uncontrollably and question whether or not we actually have kids? Don’t worry, we’ve put these socks through the ringer and have thrown them in every random load of laundry (and you know it never ends), including some serious tumble dry sessions and they come out beautifully!
We find placing your Squid Socks in a garment bag makes it much easier to retrieve them pre-dryer session, if you so choose. (Hint, hint: You might just receive a complimentary garment bag with your first purchase).
Best garment longevity advice? Follow the packaging instructions. Honest parental advice? Do what you need to do.
That's all nice, but I'm curious how they'd really hold up in my dryer.
Most dryers average 130 degrees. Our socks themselves can take a whopping 465 degrees and even more amazing, our silicone "squiddy dots" can withstand a temperature of 500 degrees! Bring on the heat.
DOTS ON SKIN: IS MY CHILD TURNING INTO A SQUID?
No, well, not likely. The socks, however, may leave temporary dots or pressure marks on your child’s skin. In fact, all brands of socks we have ever used on our children leave lines or pressure marks to various degrees. One of the most adorable baby features are those delicious little cankles, but those cankles and their heavenly rolls do lend themselves to sock marks, especially if you have children with fair or sensitive skin, like ours. That said, we use skin safe tested silicone in our Squid Socks. Although silicone allergies are extremely rare, please avoid or discontinue use of the socks if you notice or think your child is allergic to silicone.
