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, 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.
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.
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.
