Kansas City, KS - May 21, 2009 – Knit-Rite, Inc., manufacturer of SmartKnit® Seamless Socks and SmartKnitKIDS® Seamless Sensitivity Socks, recently reached out to about a young autistic man in Rohnert Park, CA that had 90 pair of socks taken from his apartment complex laundry room. His mom and caregiver would wash large loads of socks at a time for convenience and was shocked when she went to retrieve the socks and they had all disappeared.

Upon hearing the story, Knit-Rite wanted to step in and help by sending the young man 90 pairs of the patented SmartKnit® Seamless Socks to replace the ones that had been take. “We are proud to offer products for a better quality of life. To be able to reach out to individuals like this reinforces our commitment to helping make people’s lives better – one sock, or 180 socks in this case, at a time”, said Kam Howard, Marketing Director.

SmartKnit and SmartKnitKIDS patented seamless socks, have been widely accepted by children, adults, and professionals for individuals with Autism, sensory processing differences (SPD), and those who simply cannot stand annoying sock seams.

 

The SmartKnitKIDS socks also feature a unique no-heel design allowing children to put on their socks correctly with confidence. SmartKnitKIDS socks are available in white, pink, purple, blue and black in sizes up to a child’s 8 shoe size.

 

The larger seamless sock sizes are under the SmartKnit® brand and available in white, grey, navy and black. Both product lines have been approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) to use the prestigious APMA Seal of Acceptance.
