First big round of Ukraine socks

First big round of Ukraine socks is mostly finished. The long (shiggy) socks are all spoken for, but I am still selling through the short crew socks (hit me up if you want to get some). My friend, Adele, even put out a Tik-tok video about the socks!

As a result, I am looking at making another round to be made and sold. If you are very keen, feel free to send me an email to get on the list, and let me know if you are wanting long or shorts socks.

47 pairs sold, means I sent $690 to Doctors without Borders.

Ukraine Socks

I want to support Ukraine. Not sure I can do a whole lot more than make some damn good socks. update: First batch is mostly shipped out. But looking to make a 2nd batch order from the factory.

Socks are $15.00 per pair, includes shipping.
Proceeds go to Doctors without Borders.
2 kinds available: crew socks as shown, and knee-length/shiggy socks.
Socks are soft, durable, and machine washable.

Currently planning to sell socks directly through PayPal, and if there are a few extras, to sell on Shopify or other online sellers.
If anyone is interested in ordering a bulk number to sell on for further fundraising, please get in touch: info@unclewigi.com .

The proud and ancient battle standard of the Welsh is The Red Dragon (Y Ddraig Goch) and consists of a red dragon, passant (standing with one foot raised), on a green and white background. As with any ancient symbol, the appearance of the dragon has been adapted and changed over the years, and hence several different variations exist.

Pirates’ (rugby) sarongs! and more

Sarongs and socks and a bucket hat, oh my!! – Its been fun doing the sarongs, or as the team full of New Zealand guys likes to call them: lava-lavas. We took the gold from the Pirate’s shield logo, and used it for the background color of the sarong. The the team said they wanted the shield logo as 2 layers on the bottom half. It is a little different from my hasher sarong, but that’s their preference.

Additionally, the team needed some bucket hats with the logo, and some socks with their logo as well. Originally the bucket hats were to be black, but after having a sample tried out in the sun a few days, it was decided a khaki would be a bit cooler.

Pirates (rugby) socks

Recently, I have been working with a local rugby team, the Pirates, and they are getting some custom socks to go with their uniform. Although most of the uniform is black and grey, they decided to split their sock order into yellow and white. Here are some pics of the yellow pair of sample socks made up for approval.
FYI- as a sample, the factory didn’t bother finishing the toe.

‘winner’ of my Xmas sales

Although i have been selling on Amazon for a couple years now, this was the first season as a seller on FBA (stored and shipped by Amazon). And although it is still a few days from Christmas, I can safely say:

SALES WERE GREAT!

Portaits

Most products seemed to get in a few extra sales that were not big movers, but far and away the most popular item I had on offer were my Scottish socks.

I have to say, I am a bit surprised at how well they have performed. They were not very popular when I had them available at first. Then I shipped a few pair into Amazon for them to sell, and it has steadily increased.  Happy to see it.

Amazon link here.

And honestly, it is killing me that I am out of stock on them in the Amazon warehouse.  GRRRRRRRRR! I have multiple shipments on the way, but not is a rather tough time to ship products….
