Bamboo socks, socks with unsurpassed comfort
There are many reasons for why we at iZ Sock has chosen to produce socks with a high content of bamboo. The paramount reason is that socks made from bamboo have an unsurpassed comfort. The comfort is found in the bamboo's soft fibres which almost feel like silk against the skin. There are also a series of properties which makes the socks comfortable to wear on your feet.
Keep your feet at a comfortable temperature
Bamboo fibres can absorb up to 50% more moisture than a classic cotton fiber. It is important for your comfort around your feet, especially in closed shoes. The ability to absorb the moisture means that the heat and moisture are transported away from your feet. In addition the socks have other obvious advantages; they maintain the colour longer, they have a natural antibacterial property, and they are durable.
Cotton socks of high quality
Cotton is not just cotton. There are many qualities when it comes to cotton and especially when it comes to cotton socks. And of course iZ Sock has a selection of cotton socks. The thing that characterises cotton socks from iZ Sock are that they are made with combed cotton.
Shorter fibres give a soft sock
Combed cotton is, as the name implies, cotton that has been combed. This process is a bit more expensive, but the result is a material which consists of cleaner cotton. In addition, the longer fibres are pulled out of the cotton and this result in a softer quality. You can feel the softer quality in the cotton socks from iZ Sock.
The story about the sock
Socks have evolved over the centuries from the earliest models, which were made from animal skins gathered up and tied around the ankles. In the 8th century BC, the Ancient Greeks wore socks from matted animal hair for warmth. The Romans also wrapped their feet with leather or woven fabrics. By the 5th century AD, socks called "puttees" were worn by holy people in Europe to symbolize purity. By 1000 AD, socks became a symbol of wealth among the nobility. From the 16th century onwards, an ornamental design on the ankle or side of a sock has been called a clock.
The invention of a knitting machine in 1589 meant that socks could be knitted six times faster than by hand. Nonetheless, knitting machines and hand knitters worked side by side until 1800.
