The Recycled Range product names are inspired by lockdown pastimes, we thought the Green and Grey should be called the Gardener.


Our Recycled Range is made from 50% pre-consumer garment cutting waste cotton, such as t-shirts offcuts, which is colour sorted and spun with 33% polyester from recycled plastic bottles to create an innovative, high quality yarn. The remaining 17% comes when we plate our socks with ECONYL® regenerated nylon that is made from fishing nets and other nylon waste for added durability.


Any 3 pairs from this range for £40. Price automatically updated at checkout.

Mending

Every pair of our socks is accompanied by a mending kit; which includes a needle and thread, as well as 3-step darning instructions to encourage repairing or reinforcing rather than throwing away. We want to make sure that each sock lasts as long as it can.

  • Cotton

    100% cotton t-shirt offcuts are colour sorted and ground down to be re-spun into a sock knitting yarn. This process helps reduce waste and minimise the environmental impact of textile production.

  • Polyester

    The long staple fibres that hold the cotton waste together are made from recycled PET bottles. The resulting yarn is soft, durable, and comfortable to wear, making it perfect for creating high-quality socks.

  • Carpet fluff used to make ECONYL® regenerated nylon

    Econyl®

    We use regenerated nylon from fishing nets, carpet and other post-consumer waste to give our socks stretch and durability. It has the same properties as virgin nylon but is infinitely recyclable.

Funky, comfortable and sustainable. What's not to like?

Love these socks!

Warm but light, not too tight around the ankle. Really nice colours

The socks were a gift for my partner (who is better and more consistent than me at all things sustainable, but also has generally appaling socks), they have been commented on by her as being exceedingly good, well made and comfortable! The packaging too was all very well considered and the support on how to darn is helpful and encouraging.

Wonderful socks

These socks are soft and warm, I love the stripes and colours. I really like that they come with a darning kit too.
