Ripen avocados fast with an adorably small sock (yes, a sock) made just for the job. The Avocado Sock is made from pure Shetland wool that helps move along the ripening process, thanks to its natural lanolin and cozy warmth. It’s scaled to snugly fit an avocado as it gently and evenly encourages ripening in about 48 hours and makes for a super-cute addition to the kitchen counter or fruit bowl.

  • Can also be used to ripen other fruits and vegetables
  • All natural materials are ethically made
  • The Avocado Sock partners with people with employment challenges who sew on the label, insert the drawstring, and attach the hang tag
