I’ve spent a long time finding socks that are both sustainable, durable and fun to wear. Safe to say - I found them. After multiple wears, you can feel the quality compared to standard, store bought socks. The handwritten note with the package was a special touch and that attached darning kit showed me that I’ve been darning wrong all these years. While my preference is a sock that is slightly longer, this won’t stop me from buying more socks from Socko in the future
Love these socks.
Bought as a birthday present and the recipient was delighted
These are beautiful. They feel soft and comfy. It's also so good to know they are made from recycled material.
Very comfy, love the repair kit and instructions. I’m almost looking forward to finding a hole so I can mend them!
I could not be happier with these socks. I am a zero waste person who supports small businesses, and when I found you I knew you were just the one: who would send a wee mending kit with the socks? Only someone good, doing something great. Thanks, Socko family 🖤
Arrived really quickly. It's a great and thought provoking book that can be picked up and put down anytime. Would recommend to others!
I absolutely love this kit, beautifully presented and well thought out. The videos and online resources for the farming workshop were so well considered with many different format options, each clearly presented and easy to follow. I’ve had a go at darning before but it was quite messy so this really has upped my skills and I’ve already attempted repairing a piece of knitwear that had a hole in. I’m just trying to find some more to darn now!!
Repairing your clothes is such a valuable skill that is so sadly being lost, I really hope the shift in people’s attitudes continues and people return to investing in their clothing rather than sewing it as disposable.
I just recently bought my first pair of Socko socks and I’m totally delighted about them. The socks arrived in completely plastic-free packaging and with a free mini mending kit. Emma added a small hand-written thank you note, which made un-packing a real joy! The socks are of great quality, lightweight and and easy to wear.
I also went for the darning workshop gold, which also came in a little plastic-free parcel, lovingly hand-packed and beautifully displayed. I cannot wait to dive into the online course!
A very lovely purchase experience and one I will repeat for sure. Thanks, Emma!
I found this course clear to follow with a nice mix of video and reading. Darning is a really useful skill to know particularly if you are concerned about disposable fashion and sustainability. I definitely recommend this course :)
The socks are really comfortable and, thankfully, don't 'go to bed' later in the day, which is one of my pet hates!!!
Great business, really good personal servic if you need to reach out. Love the approach and ethics.
Thank you so much for your kind words Simon. We're absolutely with you on the slipping down issue and happily our cuffs are designed to be loose enough to be comfortable but supportive enough to do their all important job.
I accidentally ordered the small size but Emma was extremely helpful and sent out the correct size. The quality is excellent and they're very comfortable
A well fitting sock is a happy sock. Pleased we got your toes the room that they deserve Will!
Don't know as have given them to a friend. Service and packaging all hood.
Hope they put a smile on your friend's face :)
So many great tips, really gets you thinking about your own clothing consumption habit. Will constantly refer back to this. An easily digestible read!
Very pleased to hear you have found it useful Fiona. Thanks for taking the time to leave a review!
I absolutely love these socks. Perfect grey hue. The merino wool is such high quality and they look great with my penny loafers. So much attention to detail, I love the needle and spare yarn so I can keep them forever!!
Top styling tip! Thank you Fiona, I'm so pleased they're getting the love they deserve.
Lots of valuable information and profound wisdom. Good to dip and to re-dip into.
There is so much we can learn from the way that things were done in the past. Sharing that knowledge in a way that wasn't preachy was the aim of the book. Thank you for your very kind words James.
Love the inclusion of the needle and thread.
It's a little point of difference that I'm pleased you love Gabriel :)
Very lovely book. I’m a total beginner and not yet tried following the instructions but enjoying reading and the great pictures.
It's fab isn't it Jo? We're about to launch our online beginners' darning workshop so that might also be a useful route into the world of mending.
A great sock,well made and has a great idea and passion behind it. Recycled materials made in to what we need-a great sock.
In these times we need to help our small companies keep going and by buying a pair or two that helps everyone along the line.
Your support and your encouragement of others to do the same means such a great deal Iain. Shopping small and local really does make a huge difference. Thank you.
A lovely compact book with lots of ideas and encouragement to make your wardrobe more environmentally friendly.
Thank you Bev. 100 tips that I really hope you'll find useful.
Very nice quality sock. A comfortable warm material and good fit. Sustainably packaged from an ethical business, what's not to like!
Using the kit that came with this pair I've darned on old lower quality pair (not from socko) to save throwing them away and have been inspired to try repairing my own jeans too.
I'm overjoyed to hear the mending kit has been put to good use! I would love to see your handiwork Paul. Inspiration is the name of the game and I have a denim hand mend tutorial over on Instagram if you need a little further mendspiration.
I ordered an egg from Socko, having decided to try a few repairs to socks and tights. A box arrived 2 days after my order, containing a perfect wooden egg, needle and thread/yarn. Really good service and the egg is a pleasure to hold. Just need to practice darning now. Thank you.
I'm so pleased to hear it's set to be put to work Sara. Thank you for taking the time to share your lovely review.
