Our Story

Crescent Sock Company is the home of World’s Softest® Socks, like most, we are very proud of our family and so allow us to share a little with you!  Crescent Sock Co was founded in Niota, TN in 1902 by James L. Burn and continues to operate today by his great granddaughters.  We are nestled in the hills of Southeast TN, were the conversations are long and the tea is sweet! 

We are an American company. We've built, expanded, re-built after a fire, expanded even more, and here we stay. We watch kids play baseball across the road, we listen to the trains rumble down the tracks, and we've been known to drag out the grills and cook up some burgers in the summer.  We are family!  The founding family is not the only family here - some of our employees are working with their siblings, parents, grandparents, cousins.  At the end of the day though, we are all family here, because that is how we are treated!  

From all our Crescent family, Thank you!!! 


* Our World’s Softest® Classic, Sensitive, Knit Pickin’ and 1902 Collections are made right here in Niota, Tennessee. Our Cozy, Weekend, and Mouse Creek, are outsourced in Korea due to the limited capacity of our facility. We stand behind the quality of all our products, even though some socks are not made at our facility we ensure they are quality product and you are still supporting our American Company!
