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.
