Bonnietoes hose are made on a flat bed knitting frame and seamed up the back of the leg. The yarns are of a lightweight wool chosen or hand-dyed to match the colors of the tartan. All dance hose are reinforced with wooly nylon in the toe, bottom of the foot and heel to promote better wear. Reinforcing is available with other kilt hose depending on colors, please inquire. The hose are packaged in a lined cotton drawstring bag which also includes extra yarn for repairs and a lavender sachet.

Please contact me by email to inquire about ordering. My calendar for the spring is often full by mid-January, so contacting me a few months ahead of when you require hose is always a good idea. I am happy to hold a week in the schedule for your socks and accept a confirmation when the date gets closer. I do not promise delivery deadlines that I won’t be able to meet. I know how important it is to the dancer, parent and teacher to have a complete outfit ready for a big competition or championship.
Payment may be made by cash, personal check, or via Paypal. I ask for a deposit and a swatch of the tartan. Alternatively, viewing of the tartan in person or yarn approval by the customer is acceptable. Matching those colors is tricky business and I want to make sure it is correct! As stated above, I am now offering free shipping for hose that are paid in full upon ordering by cash or check.
Please see ‘Ordering’ about how to measure and for an order confirmation form.
I have other outfitting supplies in-stock such as underskirts, dresses, tartan sashes and fabric lengths, buttons, braid and buckles. In addition, you’ll find commercial white socks for pre-premiers and practicing. I also enjoy finding funky socks with bright argyles and plaids. If you knit, I am also happy to supply you with yarn and a sock “recipe”.
