The Avocado Sock

The Avocado Sock got its start when Maker Dianne Sherwood worked as a caterer. She would stuff unripe avocados into old ski socks to help speed up the ripening process. When she learned that not many other folks knew about this trick, she created a tailored, perfectly avocado-sized version to do the job—because, really, who wants ski socks on the counter? Dianne’s updated method is adorably small and fits snugly on an avocado. It’s made in Canada from pure Shetland wool that’s sourced from a 200-year old woolen mill in Scotland. The purity of the wool matters; its natural lanolin, not to mention the dark, cozy warmth it creates, is what helps the avocado ripen. The sock gets it ripe evenly and gently and does it in about 48 hours—and is by far the cutest thing we’ve ever seen on an avocado.
