Socks are soft, slightly on the big side, but not uncomfortably so. They have washed & line-dried well.
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.
I bought these for my 20 year old daughter. She has found them to provide the perfect level of comfort for late night trips to her chilly college library (she's in her final year of university) and I hope that in future years, when they are showing all the signs of being well loved and much repaired, these socks will remind her of those special undergraduate days. So nice to be able to give her something her friends approve of too (luxury and eco).
My husband appreciates the lovely soft cotton and the length of the sock from cuff to heal, apparently it is not too long, but just right. He was most impressed with the looped sole like the best sport sock that he can wear everyday.
Great design using lovely colours… super comfy… Loving these socks
Excellent resource to have at hand. Gives amazing tips and clear demonstrations. It’s given me confidence to mend more than I’d imagined!
I'm hugely pleased with the gift pack of three pairs of recycled socks ... and darning thread and needle, which is such a bonus! Love the colours and softness. I found the sizing leaned towards small so suggest buying a size larger if your foot size is towards the top end of whichever size chosen (if S or M). Somewhat expensive but understandably so given the small company and materials used but well worth supporting. Thanks Emma. :)
Wonderfully soft and cosy socks which arrived beautifully gift wrapped with a handwritten note. Love the fact that I can repair them (should I ever need to) with the darning needle and thread supplied too. Simply perfect!
These socks are soft and warm, I love the stripes and colours. I really like that they come with a darning kit too.
Love these socks already.
Lovely cosy socks given as gift, recipient loved the darning needle and wool too. Beautifully packaged and arrived surprisingly quickly in run up to Christmas.
Got 3 pairs for people for Christmas, they were all really pleased and I will get more in the future. Lovely quality.
This is my fourth pair of Socko socks and they are just as great as the others - comfy, well made and ethical - as well as being warm and toasty for winter. The Ink's soles are thicker than usual which means that they provide a nice a nice soft bed for your feet. I also love knowing exactly how and where these were designed and made. A definite recommend.
These socks are beautifully made and look beautiful. You always get some spare yarn and a needle for possible repair work. Ecologically friendly too. Highly recommended.
Bought these as a Christmas present and the recipient loves them. Very comfortable, great fit and the colours are beautiful. Thanks Socko! 🧦
The socks feel lovely and my order was dispatched really fast. I’ll be back. Thank you.
I've got this pair prepared for winter, and it did not let me down. It was very soft and warm. Love the handwritten note touch and the amending kit. Will definitely be a returned customer. Thank you for establishing this thoughtful business!
Your Service was amazing, so quick and efficient. I have worn the socks and they fit me well and are comfortable. Thank you
I bought these as a present, so haven't worn them, but they are so soft and feel lovely - thicker than a regular cotton sock, but not as thick as a walking sock. I'm sure these will be perfect for the cooler weather.
I was really pleased to both support a small British business with positive ethics to boot! The socks are a small Christmas gift for my very 'right on' daughter who will be delighted for an excuse to learn how to darn!
The socks arrived extremely quickly and were beautifully presented.
Quick despatch with a lovely hand written note. Socks are a gift so can't comment on them yet
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
Love the darning egg and Darning: repair, make, mend book. The egg is beautiful, will be lovely to use & the book has really easy to follow instructions. It arrived very quickly after ordering.
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!
