We’re famous for our bamboo socks. Yes, bamboo. That thing pandas love to munch on so much. First, the bamboo is pulped and strands are drawn from the plant. These strands are then turned into extremely fine and soft yarn, and this is what we use to make our socks. Here are a few of the reasons why we love this magical fibre and why you should too.
IT’S KINDER TO THE ENVIRONMENT
Bamboo is an organic and ecologically friendly choice – and we like that. What makes it so sustainable you may ask?
- It is the fastest growing plant on earth.
- It is 100% biodegradable.
- It doesn’t need irrigation (i.e. uses less water) and is drought-resistant.
- It grows successfully without fertilizers or pesticides.
- It produces more oxygen and absorbs more carbon dioxide than most trees .
IT’S RIDICULOUSLY SOFT
Thanks to a natural component called pectin, bamboo is incredibly soft and comfortable to wear. Plus, it has anti-static properties that ensure your socks will never stick uncomfortably to your skin – perfect for those with sensitive feet or anyone looking for a little extra coziness.
Summer might not be synonymous with socks, but bamboo is here to change that. Its breathable nature means your feet stay cool when temperatures soar and its insulating effect keeps your feet warm in winter, too.
Bamboo has an inherent antimicrobial agent called ‘bamboo kun’ that helps it in its plant form resist pest and fungi attacks. This agent carries through into the yarn used to make our socks and helps to fight fungus and germs on the feet.
IT’S MOISTURE WICKING
Say goodbye to sweaty feet! Bamboo wicks away moisture to keep your feet dry and fresh all day. This means you can say goodbye to smelly feet too, as foot odour only thrives in damp conditions.
