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.

  • Instructions: Insert unripened avocado into the sock and place in a warm, dry place to ripen in as little as 24 hours. For best results, gently seal opening with drawstring
  • Natural lanolin and warmth of the wool ripen avocados evenly and gently, reducing bruises and damage
  • Speeds ripening time to an average of 48 hours
  • Can also be used to ripen other fruits and vegetables
  • All natural materials are ethically made
  • The Avocado Sock employs people with employment challenges who sew on the label, insert the drawstring, and attach the hang tag

I like avocados a bit firm. I tried this for my avocado and in 2 days it was perfect to use.


Everyone loves these!

I purchased 6 of these to give as gifts to my friends and family. We usually spent around $20 on them and these are perfect at $17 plus they are so cute and unique.More > < Less


Unique conversation piece

I don’t know if it accelerates ripening, but it does protect avocados - I have never seen a bruise or other dark regions in an avocado that ripened in the sock. I can’t say the same for ones that sat out. It’s also hysterical how many people have commented on them, nestled in a basket on our counter.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.
