Today we are are going to finish mailing out the remainder of the Bloc Socks rewards, so you should have your pair of warm woollens by the end of the week.
Another exiting piece of news: we hope to have our website up by the middle of the week. The women are currently knitting a stock of some of our core styles, so those will be available before Christmas.
As a token of our gratitude for getting this project off the ground, we are going to send you a lifetime 20 percent discount code for anything on the Bloc Socks website.
We learned lots during the kickstarter campaign, and we want to share some of that with you.
First, every sock is unique. All of the women have different styles of knitting, so there is variation in all the socks. Which is great! They really are one-of-a-kind.
On the website you will notice that the socks are priced differently. As we knit the socks we discovered that each style took a different amount of time and materials which effected the price.
Also, not every sock from the kickstarter campaign made it to the final product line. We discovered that there was consensus on the socks that everyone liked, and it is much more effective to focus on a few great pairs for the brand.
The women are working on lots of new and great samples for the future. One woman brought us some patterns from the Bulgarian folklore museum that we are experimenting with. So, there are many new Bloc Socks to come.
We will also offer gift wrapping in little burlap bags, along with some of the other goodies from the kickstarter campaign.
All of your feedback and support has been integral to the process. Please stay in touch with us, and let us know if you have any suggestions for the future.
