Slide your foot into the warm embrace of a blended cashmere merino wool sock. Who said that sustainable choices mean compromise? The wearer will be warm and will enjoy the snug fit of our gentle cuff. Each toe seam is linked by hand to give you a seamless finish for added comfort.
At first touch you will feel the opulence of the buttery soft knitted fabric. These socks bring centuries’ old UK craftsmanship together with excess wool sourced from mills around the UK. These well made socks come with their own mending kit to inspire you to buy less but buy better and to learn from the more sustainable ways of the past.
Luxurious yarn that would otherwise have gone to waste has been transformed, without further dyeing, into a pair of socks in a foggy grey hue. A simple, classic rib design means the resonant colour is the star of the show and can accessorise a wide mix of outfits to suit your style.
Available in one size only:
Medium: UK 7-9 – EU 40-42
Hand washing always advised but will be happy in a wool machine wash up to 30°COMPOSITION
82% Pre-consumer superwash merino wool waste
At Socko we promote visible mending, each pair of our British made socks comes with a swatch of extra wool and a darning needle as well as 3-step darning instructions. This darning kit for socks can be used to fix a hole in any knit fabric.
I have received 2 pairs I beautifuly packaged socks with personal message . They are a present so cannot comment on comfort however I love the darning kit with them and Hope with a bit of practice darning I can make them last years . If hubby likes them I will be back .Thank you
This is my third order from Socko. I've tried and loved each of the different types of socks I've bought. They're the most comfortable that I own while still being breathable. I can't recommend these highly enough and in my most recent order bought a few extra pairs as Christmas gifts - this year when friends/family finding socks in their stockings won't be disappointed as they'll be getting socko!
These socks are soft and comfortable and fit beautifully. I absolutely love them. I also bought a pair for a friend (she is thrilled with them) and an egg, and will be buying more for friends. I absolutely love that they come with their own darning kit to ensure that they really will last (although I think it will be a long time before I manage to make a hole in these well made socks!!) Service is quick and friendly too.
Emma’s darning course is brilliant too!!
My son is very happy with his new socks. The darning needle and spare thread is a really nice touch. Thank you!
I love both the ethos and the product, and would highly recommend!
