We have some exciting news to share with you! While we’re at it, we figure it’s a good time to reintroduce ourselves and share the story of our brand and the last 1.5 years that have brought us to where we are today.
As you may have seen on social media, we are releasing our new “Hello Spring” Collection this week. Beyond these happy Spring colors is a brand new sock that we are incredibly proud of and excited to share with you.
We are thrilled to announce that we are now producing our line of knee highs right here in the United States of America!
It has always been a dream and goal of ours to have USA made stockings and making it happen has been a trying and incredible journey. We have spent a lot of time recently reflecting on how we started, the challenges we have faced and how lucky we feel to have customers who have believed in us and cheered us on along the way.
Little Stocking Company began in August of 2016 as “Happy Tights”. In the very early months of our brand, we were individually hand dyeing each pair of stockings. As our little shop quickly grew, we knew it would not be possible to continue hand dyeing if we wanted to grow even more and be able to provide stockings to the growing demand of our customers. Upon this realization we started seeking out a US manufacturer to custom make our line. We spent months making phone calls and trying to convince several US manufacturers to take a chance on our start-up and faced constant rejection. We weren't in big retailers, we didn't have big money and we hadn't been around long enough. We found ourselves faced with the choice of closing up shop or seeking an overseas manufacturer who would be willing to work within our needs, and we chose the latter.
After spending a couple more months arranging samples from several countries, we decided to work with a team in China who was open to our specific needs and eager to work with us. All of the stockings that we have sold between Fall of 2017 and now have been produced by this same team. While we have been happy with our importing experience, we have continued to seek a US manufacturer to partner with us. Like hand dyeing, we have always known that overseas production would be another stepping stone to get us where we really wanted to be- here in the USA!
Our new “Hello Spring” Collection is our dream turned reality. As Little Stocking Co. has grown and evolved we have always strived to be improving both product quality and customer experience. We can’t wait to introduce you to our best stockings ever!
Stay tuned for more details on our website this week, including our new and improved sizing!

*We will not have Rose Red tights available in size 1-2 years tomorrow. We are so disappointed that this size was lost in transit. We have more coming and will have them available sometime next month. While the loss of these tights was completely out of our control, we do intend to offer them at a discount for you when we get them stocked. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
As we prepare to launch our new line in a couple of weeks, we wanted to share with you more information about our new knee highs and tights. The photos that you see on our site right now showcase our new products. While they appear very similar to our previous stockings, there are some differences.
We are now working with a custom manufacturer which has allowed us to continue making colors that are unique to our brand. And, allows us to make improvements to the design and fit of our knee highs and tights. Here are a few changes you can expect--
1.A lower price point! Woohoo! Our new stockings are knitted with our custom dyed yarn instead of being hand dyed post production. Less labor = lower costs for you!
2.Improved fit! Amazing stay-up-ability! We have added a little bit more spandex to the design of our new knee highs. This means they will stay up where they belong, even on the littlest legs. We are really excited about this and know you will love this new fit!
3. Long lasting Color! Knitting stockings with pre-dyed yarns results in colors that are more even, more vibrant and longer lasting!
4. Easy Laundering! In designing our new line, we made it a priority that our stockings be easy to care for. We know you're busy! Toss them in with your regular laundry and they'll be just fine!
We are so excited for you to try out our new stockings! We are confident that you will love them just as much as we do. Thank you for supporting our little shop as we grow and make changes that allow us to continue providing the very best stockings to little wardrobes everywhere.
Stay tuned for our launch date which we expect to be sometime at the end of this month!
You may have noticed that a lot of items in our shop are sold out which is not usual for us! I wanted to answer some questions that we have been receiving a lot lately. So, here we go!
1. Why are you clearing your inventory?
We are clearing our inventory to make room for some new exciting stuff! We are preparing to release a brand new, exclusive to us line of knee highs and tights. We will not continue selling previous styles once we launch our new line so we have everything deeply discounted to clear house.
2. Will sold out knee highs and tights be restocking?
Yes and no! We will absolutely be restocking our shop for Fall but it will be with our brand new line of stockings! We will not have the exact version of anything that we are currently offering or have offered in the past. That said, we will have new versions of your favorite staple colors like mustard and rusty rose along with some brand new colors we have not offered before!
3. When will your new line launch?
We do not have an exact date just yet, but we are hoping for sometime at the end of August. Everything will be ready to ship so turn around times will still be very fast! We always aim to have your knee highs and tights in route to you within 1 business day and that will stay the same!
If you have any other questions, please feel free to send us an email and we will get back to you as quickly as possible.
Thank you for being the most wonderful customers and supporters! We can't wait to show you what we have been working on!
