More about the «Silk Of South America»

Pima cotton - the «Silk Of South America»

For over 10 years, we have been using one of the best quality cotton yarns - Pima cotton - for our most successful product, our calf socks. This type of cotton, which is particularly popular in Peru, has extraordinarily long fibres.

At the same time, the fibres feel silky, which is why Pima cotton is known as the «silk of South America» As well as these properties, which are extremely important when it comes to processing, the plant itself is particularly fungus-resistant. This means fewer pesticides are required, which is good for the environment.

Soft fibres – wonderfully comfortable fit

Pima cotton feels soft – softer than other types of cotton – yet is it durable. This softness is therefore its key distinguishing feature. Step after step, you will be able to feel how special your socks are. Socks which are soft and smooth. Socks which pamper your feet. Feel the difference for yourself.

Long fibres – high quality

The Pima cotton which we use has particularly long fibres. If these extra-long fibres are spun into a thread, virtually none of the fibres slip out. This is important as the thread is used to make socks which must withstand a damp and warm climate subjected to friction.

If fibres slip out of the thread, we call this lint or fluff. Extra-long fibres largely eliminate this problem, meaning that your socks still look great even after thousands of steps.
