About Wheel House Designs
559 A Harrel Street Morrisville, VT 05661
Wheel House Designs has been designing socks since 1989. Right from the start, the cow sock put us on the map as being an innovator in the novelty sock industry. We now offer over 400 design ideas. We are proudly MADE IN THE USA. See profile below.
Our cushioned socks are soft terry loop construction, which protects feet and reduces the shock of impact. They are engineered to provide protection against blisters and wicks away moisture to keep feet dry. Acrylic, the most widely used fiber for athletic socks is soft, washes well and holds its shape. This style of socks makes a great sneaker sock. Perfect for hiking boots too
Most of our socks are Lightweight and Ultra Lightweight Cotton. Cotton is widely preferred for softness. Nylon is used for strength and spandex is great for stretching power. The brillant colors show detail in our designs.
Lightweight Stretch Cotton are great form fitting socks. Each pair are made with high quality soft cotton and have great stretching power wash after wash. The colorful motifs certainly make a fashion statement! This style goes with a wide variety of shoe styles, especially sandals.

The company started at the kitchen table of Gail Wheel Bourne while raising two children. It quickly became a well-known business, moving several times to accomodate the growth. Fast forward to 2012, 23 years and 450 designs later, Gail and her cast of creative staff members are designing and distributing to loyal specialty, resort, distinctive catalogs and gift shops. The spotted cow sock put WHD on the map as a clever and fashion design company. Now we have 14 catagories including name drop and custom designs. We are tremendously proud that our product is still MADE IN USA (Buy Local!). Our niche has been to stay true to customers who look for specialty products that are popular yet not found in major mass markets. We cater to specialty stores of all sizes, many who have been carrying our sock line for many years and who have also watched us change and helped us grow. We are nationally known for our pet breed designs. We specialize in creating intricate designs with popular and not so popular dog, cat and horse breeds. Our wildlife catagory just keeps going wild and our garden designs sell very well in garden stores as great gifts.
Customer Service has always been our priority and many of our customers are also valued friends. We understand the demands of multi-store businesses with our new barcode system on each hang tag for up to date inventory control. We also know the needs of the boutique gift shops who do not want to carry too much inventory and therefore we offer low minimums and many times ship the same day as the order is received.
We are able to stay competitive in the sock market for many reasons. We do not try to compete with overseas mills. They sell perfectly well in big box stores and department stores. Made in the USA has always been our passion and in today's world, that is a priority on many minds of our customers. We are proud of our quality and use soft cotton, vivid colors and great artwork to set us apart from the rest. We have been designing socks since 1989 and our name is well known across the country and beyond as being a leader in the sock industry.
We value staying in the specialty market for it is what we do best.
