Sock Tech Design Questions

Hi! My company does a few sock styles and I’ve never worked on socks/hosiery before… Does anyone have experience in this category and can answer a few questions?
How many POM does a sock spec usually have? From our factories and a few colleagues, it seems to be just a few: Foot Length, Leg length (like crew sock), foot width, calf width and sock opening width. And then extended msmts (stretched) for the widths. This seems about right to me- is this industry standard?
What about using a form, like NAHM boards? Would this be a good way to standardize fit? I’ve heard big companies like WalMart, Target use these.
Thanks so much in advance!! :slight_smile:
