Made in the USA: Tysinger Hosiery in Silver Valley made 900 pairs of customized wool blend socks for Team USA

When the US Winter Olympic team marches in the “parade of nations” during the opening and closing ceremonies at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia – their feet will be warm and cozy thanks to a local hosiery company located in Davidson County.

Tysinger Hosiery in Silver Valley made 900 pairs of customized wool blend socks that will be worn by Team USA.    Tysinger Hosiery happens to be one of four companies in the US that owns a machine that is capable of knitting socks to Ralph Lauren’s specification.  Uniform designer Ralph Lauren has vowed that every stitch of clothing worn by US Athletes will be made in the United States…after news leaked that Team USA uniforms for the 2012 London Games were made in China.
