The comfy hand-knit Ivanas are medium-height house slippers with an all grey body. They are durable and warm. Their extra-thick knitting makes them perfect for hardwood floors and cold winter nights.
Traditional sock patterns like the Ivana have been passed down through Bulgarian families for generations. We gather and dye our wool locally, and most of it comes from sheep right here in our own small village of Patalenitsa. All the wool is hand-processed so that it's soft and warm against the skin.
Our brand helps keep alive our country's tradition of knitting, while bringing income into Bulgaria's rural villages.
Thanks so much for your support. Enjoy the socks!

How Do I Care For My Slippers?

Do You Ship Internationally?
Yes we ship Bloc Socks nearly everywhere. However, please be aware that the purchaser is responsible for all duties and taxes, which vary by country and there may be local laws and regulations that affect delivery of your item, for which we cannot account.
How Long Does it Take to Get My Bloc Socks?
We hand make every pair, however the grandmas have made some stock for us, so we can generally ship in 2-3 days. The socks are made in Bulgaria, and shipped from New York. Please allow up to a week for delivery via UPS Ground.
What is a Martenitsa?
Martenistas bring good luck and one comes with every pair of Bloc Socks. Pin this red and white charm to your jacket or scarf in the winter and wear it until you see the first budding tree. Once you've spotted a bud, tie the charm to that branch for good luck.
