Merino Wool: A Wonder of Nature
You can wear me just as happily in sneakers as you can in boots because I am made from Australian Merino wool (Virgin Wool), a particularly fine form of wool. This means that I keep your feet warm in winter and cool in summer thanks to my excellent heat regulation properties. I am strengthened with polyamide in the toe and ball areas. A little elastane in my band helps to ensure that I neither cut in nor slip down.
All in one Box
To keep your feet warm in winter and cool in summer, we Merino wool socks are also available as "Six in a Box". We come in packs of 6 and in a variety of colors to boost your mood.
Total Easy Care
I come equipped with a Total Easy Care finish, which means that you can happily wash Merino Wool Socks at 30 degrees in the washing machine and I will not shrink. Even after countless washes, I will still look virtually as good as new. Anything else would just be a pain for you.
Ribbing for a natural feel
My ribbed structure is elastic and nestles against your skin without being obtrusive. The ribbed structure is fine and elegant, ensuring that you look great for every occasion. Promise!
My wool comes from Merino sheep that have not been subjected to mulesing. This is something I am very proud of, as mulesing is cruel: in order to prevent fly infestations in the folds in the buttock area, a piece of skin is cut away when the animal is young. This generally causes long-term pain, and is not something we want to be involved in.
My wool therefore comes from animals that are guaranteed not to have been subjected to mulesing. This costs a bit more, but I feel so much better this way.
Made in Italy
I come from a small sock manufacturer in northeast Milan, which makes me Italian. They create high-quality socks such as me with a great passion for detail. Three siblings are running the business in second generation ensuring that lots of socks turn out as good as me.
For people & the environment
The cultivation of textile raw materials, especially cotton, requires a lot of water and a lot of energy. The consumption of energy leads to CO2. In addition to the production of the raw materials, each processing stage plays a role in this. The best thing for the environment is if the products are produced in an environmentally friendly way and last as long as possible. This is why my raw materials were processed exclusively in Europe with the goal of a long service life.
100% skin-friendly & allergy-tested
I am good for you, your feet and your skin: I have been tested and I meet the Oeko-Tex® Standard 100.
This standard says that I am 100% skin-friendly and allergy-tested. We often forget that socks are worn directly against the skin, in a damp and 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.
