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.

Seriously, this thing works. I bought 3 of them. My mom made fun of me when I bought this. I immediately put it on an avocado I had just purchased which was rock hard. We were eating it the next evening. My mom stole a sock from me. It just works.More > < Less

I love avocado and eat one as my main course most days at work. I always had issues getting ripe ones and either ended up with mushy ones or hard as a rock ones. With my socks, I purchase hard ones with confidence, put them in the socks and I can enjoy the creamy goodness when lunchtime rolls around! If you love avocados, this is a must have!!!More > < Less

About 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.
