Soft

 My son is picky about his socks! He actually prefers to not wear them whenever he has the choice. Tags on T-shirts don't always bother him but he prefers ones without tags. Many children are sensitive to certain texture and feel of clothing and I know my son doesn't like bumps at the end of his socks. We received a long sleeve Soft Sensory Tee & their Seamless Crew Socks White/Blue 2 pk. to see if there really is a difference.

 So, what is so different about Soft? It is the first line of inclusive clothing designed with the needs of all children including those with who are extra-sensitive to clothing. Their socks are made especially for children with sensitive feet. They are completely seamless with hand-linked seamless toe with no bumps or lumps at the end and no heel construction. My son says they are cool and they really are soft too!  The Long Sleeve Soft Sensory Tee is also a hit with my son! It is made with 100% soft cotton,constructed with flat seaming, wide fit bound collar and is tagless, of course. It fits my son just right and it is really soft too! It is also great to wear under those itchy sweaters that all kids seem to own. We received the Navy Blue but it also comes in other great colors and is unisex.

More about Soft (from their webpage):

Created by a Mom and Special Education teacher, our goal is to design clothing that can enhance social skills, sensory organization, concentration, by addressing unique sensory needs, but without sacrificing personal style and self expression.

Jessica E. Ralli (founder, director) has an MA in Special Education from Columbia University, and worked with children with Autism and Sensory Disorders in the New York City school system before starting Soft in 2007.  Jessica conducted three years of both qualitative and quantitative research in and out of the classroom in preparation for launching the Soft clothing line.  Jessica is also an avid fashion junkie--following her favorite designers religiously, and pulling expertise and inspiration from her close friends in the industry.  

Suzy Kogen Friedman (co-founder, partner), is a lifelong advocate for people with developmental disabilities. Her nephew Timmy, now 9, was diagnosed with Autism and global developmental delays at age 3. Timmy's daily dressing challenges were Suzy's inspiration for Soft Clothing. Suzy runs a successful real estate development company in the Chicago area, where she is also a wife and a mother. Suzy is working her creative and problem-solving magic on the development of the Soft Sensory Toy line, to launch in 2011.
