We will miss you, MP!
Something is up in the state of Denmark, where the fabulous MP brand is from. To get to the bad news quick, we were informed that MP will no longer be producing goods for import to the USA, so we won’t be able to restock their items when we run out. It’s a very sad Zap! section right now, just full of MP styles we won’t see again.
This is a huge bummer, especially now that we’re officially into winter, because MP made some of our most favourite cozy styles. Since the stock we have now is the last we’ll be seeing of them, if you’ve been wanting an MP style and have been hesitating, now’s the time to treat yourself. And if you haven’t been coveting an MP style? Then let me explain just how wonderful they are.
The cornerstone of our love of MP is their cotton-lined wool. Comfy cotton on the inside and superwash wool on the outside, they are some of our warmest styles. Plus, the superwash wool is pre-shrunk, and the label suggests washing warm or hot. With wool! Of course, for best results, wash inside out in cool water & hang to dry. Taken care of well, these sturdy and well-made cotton-lined wool styles could be solid staples of your wardrobe for a long time.
MP offers some great wool knee highs but the one true love of most Dreamers are the Coarse Knit Knee Highs. They’re thick and scrumptious, but probably not too thick for your favourite winter shoes. And they’re long enough to reach the knees of most legs who try them! Available in two sizes and three colours, the Coarse Knit Knee Highs are one style that I think all of us are trying to get a pair of before they go away.
Not all colours are available in tiny sizes, so use the drop-down menu to choose the size you’re interested in first, then pick the colours that show up as available (not greyed out).
Of course, MP isn’t all about the cozy, they also have some light, weight warm weather styles that are equally as fabulous. Sure, it may be pretty dang cold right now, but these styles probably won’t be here when warm weather comes back. Future you will be forever thankful.
These are just a few of all the MP styles we have left! Before you say your goodbyes to MP by getting something to remember them by, check out the MP sock sizing guide after the jump—with basic sizing ranges and what styles we carry in each size.
We know that MP sizing can be confusing, so here’s a guide to help you find the right size when looking at their socks (not applicable to tights, their sizing is a little more involved). There is always a little variance, depending on the style, so make sure to check the Sizing Tips for the style you’re interested in before you buy.
