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 coal black coloured pair of socks. A simple, classic rib design means the deep colour is the star of the show and can accessorise any range of outfits to suit the occasion.
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

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.
These socks are the best of all things. The ribbed sock is comfortable and quite smart and then you have the looped back foot and heal which is just like a sports socks. As these are additional pairs, I can say that they wash and wear well too.
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!
Love these socks already.
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!
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.
