Amazon reviewer Kay J. posted a great tip: “With all socks, be sure to turn them inside out, to make sure there isn’t any loose threads that may wrap around your little one’s toes, cutting off circulation and causing pain. I do this check with ALL socks and cut any loose pieces of cotton/thread that I see, before they become problematic, during wear and/or after throwing in washing machine.”
