What Makes It Mighty?
- wool sock provides optimal temperature to help ripen avocados
- made from undyed scottish shetland wool
- bring an avocado for lunch and protect it from bruises!
Ensure you have a perfectly ripe avocado every time you crave guacamole or avocado toast! The Avocado Sock is a back-to-basics product that speeds the ripening of delicate avocados. Simply slip your hard, green avocado into the knit wool sock and the natural lanolin and warmth of the wool will help ripen the avocado more quickly and evenly. As an avocado ripens, it exudes an ethylene gas that is trapped by the avocado sock to further enhance the ripening time. The avocado always ripens perfectly in the avocado sock with no bruising and no waste.
- Ripens avocados evenly and gently
- Can be used over and over again
- Reduces bruising and damage from transporting ripe avocados
- Can be used to ripen other fruits and vegetables
Insert an un-ripened avocado into the sock and put in a warm, dry place. Do not remove avocado from sock while ripening. Press gently on avocado through top opening to check for ripeness. Avocado is ripe when it yields to soft pressure. It will ripen in as little as 24 to 48 hours.
Package free; primarily compostable except very minor components (e.g. plastic toggles or small stickers)

About The Avocado Sock

The owner ripened avocados in wool ski socks lined up in a drawer and documented this handy tip in a cookbook. Fast forward to a recent rediscovery the cookbook and creation of the custom, all wool, environmentally-friendly, Canadian-made Avocado Sock to enable everyone to enjoy a perfectly ripe avocado exactly when they need it.
