We are so grateful to all who supported our Kickstarter campaign and helped Lily Trotters take flight with our first production run.
In the next few weeks all order information will be collected.We have hired a company called Backerkit that will help us keep everything running smoothly and will create an easy customer experience.
YARN SNAFU: It happens. And securing yarn made in the USA is our biggest manufacturing hurdle. It can take six to eight weeks to receive a yarn order. Our Whole Lotta Love heart socks will be delivered approximately six weeks after our other designs, due to a yarn delay for just this style only; all other sock styles will be manufactured and delivered as planned.
JUST IN: We finally got samples of our groovy striped socks called "Candy Stripes"! While they did not make it in time for Kickstarter, they can be pre-purchased by our Kickstarter supporters as an "ADD-ON" and by new customers as pre-orders.
MISSED OUR KICKSTARTER?: Through Backerkit, new customers can pre-order all of our socks at a great discount -- just not as steep as those savings offered to our Kickstarter supporters. We will keep everyone informed of our progress through regular Kickstarter and Backerkit updates, and through posts here on our blog. We’ll be working hard over the next couple of months to knit, fulfill and ship all of our pre-orders.
From the entire Lily Trotters team, we offer our sincerest thanks. We’re so excited to start delivering beautiful socks in just a few short months.
Comments will be approved before showing up.
You see your favorite athletes wearing compression socks, sleeves, shorts, and shirts as they warm up, train, and play. And then you remember the person next to you on your cross-country flight mentioned she was wearing compression socks.
What exactly is compression wear and should you be using it? Or, is it a buzzword the athletic garment industry invented to increase sales? Is all compression wear equal? What is the right amount of compression? What is the correct compression for your needs?
We're off to the races! Woohoo!
Known as one of the best races on the East Coast, The Baltimore Running Festival is holding their 16th annual event which consists of a marathon, half marathon, 5k and more. Many organizations are coming out to show support, including one particularly awesome Baltimore-based high-performance compression sock company... Ahem - yours truly.
Our compression socks have become a favorite among local runners and fitness fanatics, so we just had to cheer on our tribe at this spectacular event. We can't wait to see runners reppin' their Lily Trotters athletic compression socks at the starting line!
