Super-durable socks in Wool
# Why do we say that these are the sturdiest socks on the market?
For two reasons :
- The blend of materials : the combination between the finest wool and synthetic threads (polyamide and elastane) results in a blend of materials that is unmatched in terms of wear resistance.
- Their success in the Martindale test : the Martindale abrasion test is known and trusted worldwide as a way to measure how resistant materials are to friction, and therefore how durable they are. In a sample test pitted against 15 pairs from premium brands, our super-durable material came out on top with a resistance of nearly 49000 cycles. While this number cannot be converted into a precise step-count, it represents a very strong and resistant fabric.
# Why do we add synthetic materials?
We add synthetic fibres to this blend of materials to give it it’s strength and durability. As well as using a thick woollen thread, we have also chosen to use polyamide, a material that is also used to create mooring ropes for boats, and elastane, which gives the socks a neat and smooth look when worn.
# When to wear the super-durable range?
Woollen super-durable socks are perfect for winter. Not too thick and not too thin, these socks will keep you warm and prevent your feet from rubbing, whilst still slipping easily into all types of shoes. Our mid-calf super-durable models are available in uniform colours or patterned (coloured ribbing or caviar).
