THE READER

DETAIL

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

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.

SIZING

Small: UK 4-6 – EU 37-39
Medium: UK 7-9 – EU 40-42

CARE

Machine washable at 30°.

COMPOSITION

50% Pre-consumer garment cutting waste
33% polyester from recycled plastic bottles

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 pair lasts as long as they can.

So pleased to find these and was ready to order another set of 3. But so disappointed. Worn a pair for first time today and had to keep stopping as they just kept slipping off inside my boot. When I got home I measured them against my other standard 4-6 socks. These are absolutely huge in comparison in both length of width. Very disappointed as spent nearly £50.00 on socks that I now can't wear.

Joanna, I'm so sorry to hear of your disappointment. I have sent you an email and hope we can resolve this unfortunate experience together.

Quality, Quality, Quality

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

Oh Joel thank you so much for taking the time to leave your heartfelt review. I hope we will be able to offer a variety of lengths in the future and I'm sure your darning is just great - the technique we teach is just the one we recommend on hard wearing areas, particularly socks.
