Yarns Used to Make the Socks
This is a soft synthetic fiber that provides padded comfort and a superior warmth to weight ratio; highly durable, acrylic wicks, retains shape, and is able to hold brighter colors than corresponding natural fibers; added benefits include easy care and minimal shrinkage.
This is a high-performance four-channel polyester well-known for its ability to move moisture away from the skin and speed the evaporation of perspiration; quick-drying wicking action helps to minimize hot spots and blisters while an inherent resistance to fading, shrinkage, and wrinkling enhances resilience
A natural insulator (i.e. insulates against both cold and warmth like insulation in a house) that boasts all the moisture management,
odor-control, and robust qualities classic to conventional wool with an extra level of soft comfort that does not itch; superwash-treated to help maintain shape after repeated washing's.
A unique short staple wool known for its strength, high luster, sheen, and smooth handle, all of which combine to reduce friction, giving the fiber its most notable characteristic--BLISTER RESISTANCE; added benefits include unique wicking abilities, low-odor retention, breathable insulation, and performance that improves with wear.
Well-known for its versatility, aversion to abrasion, strength, and stretch; as a backing yarn, it provides added stretch and improves durability; quick-drying and easy to wash, nylon socks can be lightweight and sleek or heavyweight and highly elastic.
A superior hydrophobic synthetic that boasts optimal temperature regulation and superior moisture management; lightweight (possessing the lowest specific gravity of any synthetic fiber), breathable, and able to retain its insulating properties even when wet; as an insulator, polypropylene retains warmth when it’s cold and coolness when it’s warm (i.e. much like insulation in a house); therefore, it can stand alone or work effectively as a base layer; on top of all this, polypro’s abrasion test ratings are off the charts.
