Warmth from the Forest
I am made of modal. This is a natural, regenerative fiber made of 100% natural cellulose from beech wood. The beech wood used comes from certified sustainable forestry. The Austrian factory where I was made only uses wood that cannot be sent for higher end applications for quality reasons.
The LenzingTM manufactures modal fibers primarily using surplus renewable energy from processing. This means that producing me saves energy and resources.
Cashmere for a touch of luxury
Cashmere is one of the finest and most valuable natural fibers there is. It is made from the wool of the cashmere goat. I myself consist of 8% cashmere. Sounds like little? Not at all! This combination is durable, yet incredibly soft.
Other Colors Available
Treat yourself to some daily luxury. To offer you a bit of variety, I am available not only in black, but also in three other colors. Whether classic black, luxurious gray, calming blue, or warm Bordeaux, you will have your moment of comfort.
Into the Washing Machine
Unlike pure cashmere socks, you can throw me into the washing machine to be washed. I am happiest at max. 40° C – this helps me remain soft even after multiple washes, so you can keep enjoying my silky smooth material.
Made in Italy
The wood comes from regional beech forests. The pulping and modal production processes are performed at the same site in Austria. Then, after a quick drive to Italy, they make me in a small sock factory.
Here, they create high-quality socks such as me with care and attention to detail. Three siblings are running the business in the second generation, ensuring that lots of socks turn out as well as me.
We socks live in a damp, warm climate between your shoes and your feet. Every step causes friction. So, to ensure we are long-lasting, our sole, heel and toe areas are strengthened with polyamide. But there are no artificial fibers used anywhere else, to guarantee maximum comfort.
100% skin-Friendly & allergy-tested
I am good for you, your feet and your skin: and to prove it, I passed the test for the Oeko-Tex® Standard 100.
This standard says that I am 100% skin-friendly and allergy-tested. This is important, since we often forget that socks are worn directly against the skin in a damp, warm climate subjected to friction.
I am packaged in a small paper bag to protect me from dirt. Protection is important to ensure that I reach you in all my glory. Plastic has been out since January 2020. Isn’t that much better? And if you recycle the paper, that would be even better still.
Climate-neutral shipping from Switzerland
I am shipped by Swiss Post using the ‘Pro-Clima’ label, which ensures carbon-offset shipping. My journey to you is completely climate-neutral. And the best bit: this is at no additional cost to you. You just get free, speedy deliveries like always.
No subscription traps
We sockscription socks want to be worn and see the world. Ending up left unused in a dark sock drawer is every sock’s nightmare.
To make sure that you never have too many socks, it is up to you to monitor your sockscription: you choose whether and when to renew, bring forward or end your subscription.
One month before renewal time, you will receive a letter from BLACKSOCKS to remind you and ensure that you don’t forget to renew. If only everything was so easy.
