Our cotton passes air well, provides a relatively good thermal insulation. Sufficiently strong, easy to handle, and most importantly - not expensive. It is of different quality. Cheap cotton looks bad and quickly becomes lose or color faded.... Our cotton, especially mercerized, looks good and you can wear it for a long time. Similar socks are offered by European makers like Falke, Pantherella, Bresciani, Sozzi and many more for a lot more money!
Bamboo fabric helps wearers keep pleasantly dry feet thanks to the hollow structure of the fibers which makes it super-absorbent. This means that the material effectively wicks moisture away from the skin. Bamboo is very breathable and far better in this respect than cotton or wool socks.
Mercerization, in textiles, a chemical treatment applied to cotton fibers or fabrics to permanently impart a greater affinity for dyes and various chemical finishes. Mercerizing also gives cotton cloth increased tensile strength, greater absorptive properties, and, usually, a high degree of luster, depending on the method used.
The treatment consists of immersing the yarn or fiber in a solution of sodium hydroxide (caustic soda) for short periods of time, usually less than four minutes. The material is then treated with water or acid to neutralize the sodium hydroxide. If the material is held under tension during this stage, it is kept from shrinking appreciably; if no tension is applied, the material may shrink by as much as one-fourth. Higher-quality cotton goods are usually mercerized; cloths so treated take brighter, longer-lasting colors from less dye. The effect of caustic soda on cotton was discovered in 1844 by John Mercer.
Carbonation, the carbonated raw material is burned in a gas burner. On the gas-fired thread gets wound on the bobbin, unravels and after the technological operation, again wound on the bobbin. The thread becomes "cylindrical": it decreases vibrancy and increases smoothness and shine.
Combs yarn - has the correct structure, the lowest density of pile on the surface, it is the most uniform in thickness, the most durable. Combs' yarn - fibers pulp yarn absorbs short fibers and residual impurities.
Regenerated cotton - a new technological process that consists in the fact that there is a secondary processing of cotton fabrics with their subsequent mixing with polyester fibers. This procedure allows you to strengthen the structure of socks and protect them from wear, which is very important and economical.
We promise these products will be the most comfortable and highest quality you ever own. Once you slip your feet into a pair of fine plush mercerized cotton socks, trust us, you won’t ever go back to wearing poorly made cheap cotton socks again.
REALIZE THE DIFFERENCE
When shopping at SOXESSORY, you’ll soon realize the difference that high-quality products and high manufacturing standards create. We wouldn’t accept anything less for ourselves or our discerning customers. We trust that once you experience the SOXESSORY difference, you will never accept anything less either.
We test our products to ensure their safety, making sure no harsh chemicals are used in the manufacturing process. Sadly, there are over 8,000 chemicals used in textiles that other companies, including our competitors, consider to be acceptable. We won’t stand for this! These dangerous chemicals can cause allergies, rashes, and in rare cases, even cancer. That is certainly not acceptable to us, and you deserve better.
When sourcing our products, we only deal with manufacturers that are BSCI certified. This certification serves as an international code of conduct that ensures the highest level of labor protections. BSCI certified manufacturers must adhere to strict standards ensuring workers are treated fairly and humanely. Their code of conduct establishes 11 core principles that give workers the right to a healthy and safe working environment, fair wages, decent working hours, ethical business practices, and sustainability standards. They mandate special protections to prevent worker discrimination, child labor, and servitude.
In addition to only dealing with manufacturers that meet BSCI principles, we also only select textiles that adhere to Oeko-Tex standards. Oeko-Tex’s Standard 100 is a globally recognized certification and testing system for textiles ensuring they are free of any harmful chemicals or banned substances like formaldehyde. The closer textiles are to sensitive skin, the stricter the requirements. Our products meet Oeko-Tex Standard 100 class I and II requirements, meaning they are safe enough for babies and toddlers, and to be worn directly on your most sensitive skin.
