Handles for Socks
I’ve been noticing many of you looking for Poi handles for Sock poi. It’s pretty easy to add any of the ones below from homeofpoi. Poke the thin end through and just tie a knot. The work as they should. You have the option of swivels too for hyper-loops and orbitals. The door knob looking handle is slightly weighted and so good for throws!

Great for practices as they detangle themselves quite easily! Generally come with light-weight tennis balls but you can slip anything inside I use my socks with small soft juggling balls that I bought from Amazon They are a perfect weight and Pain free!
Sock Poi are the perfect practice Poi and still put on a good show. They give a satisfying swing with an even drag through the air. Sock Poi are visually mesmerising and look ‘trick’ on the eye. A lot of Advanced Poi Moves look stronger with Sock Poi. Stalls, isolations and Wrist wraps are very attractive to watch.
Sock Poi come in a variety of funky fabrics. Widely available and simple to make. Sock Poi are more forgiving than wire, chain or string. They don’t tangle when they entwine themselves.
