This collection is the result of 3 UK businesses with sustainability at their hearts, coming together to make something special.
Turtle Doves make gloves from cashmere waste but wanted to spin their own waste into a workable yarn. This is where iinouiio came in with their revival of the shoddy trade. Socko was only too keen to turn this yarn into socks to be treasured and worn for years to come.
While not as soft as cotton or merino wool, these socks are still comfortable next to the skin and get softer with each wash and wear. These are some of the warmest socks we've made, this combined with the fact they have a seamless toe means that these socks are a great companion for walking. For breathability and comfort it makes sense to choose wool, whatever the weather.
The beautiful fleck in these socks comes from the recycled cashmere. It adds that little touch of luxury into each stitch of these blueish grey socks and allows even the off-cuts of repurposed material to live on.
