A 12-year-old girl from Delta, B.C., is garnering international attention after founding Freetoes — a company that manufactures toeless socks.

Katelyn Lohr first came into the spotlight when she appeared on the CBC's Dragons' Den last year and, although she didn't secure an investment, her pitch caught attention worldwide.

Since then, she has sold 30,000 pairs of toeless socks. As the CBC's Farrah Merali found out, Lohr had no idea her business would ever get so big.
