Into Making Socks? Here’s how to make your own pattern for your own foot!

If you go to our website, SierraWools.com, you can find a link for a custom “sock generator” that will allow you to enter dimensions for your foot and the outcome is a row by row description of how to make that sock fit that foot!

This process is a little bit science and a little bit art, I’ve learned.  The best way to learn it is to get your feet wet (no pun intended) and start working on it.  As Jethro Gibbs from the TV series says, “learn things”!  Or as Niki would say, “Just Do It”.

My husband and I are starting a fiber business in northern California we call Sierra Wools.  We plan on specializing in processing and selling high quality wool and products from the regional “Fibershed” that serves our area.  (If you’re asking what is a Fibershed? check them out at fibershed.com.)

I formerly owned and operated White Mountain Wool Mill in northeastern Arizona, and processed wool for myself and others for many years there.  I have specialized in fine wool products, such as Romney, Lincoln, Ramboullet and other fine woolens.

We also are producing a quality wool picker, inspired by our own needs and the high cost and timeliness of shipping for other products on the market.  My husband hand crafted our fine oak picker to my specifications and needs for processing my own fleeces over many years, and it is capable of producing larger volumes of fleece than many small units we looked at buying.
