Cowichan style from the Fall/Winter 2015 collection.
Materials: Wool, nylon, polyurethane.
There are many kinds of yarn and through our experience of decades in the socks business, we use yarns that are particularly suited to socks. For CHUP, certainly only the most optimal yarns that help realize the low-gauge construction and vivid designs will do!
These socks use washable Merino wool yarn. Washable wool shrinks less when washed than normal wool. Merino wool is known for its softness and shine, as well as its hypoallergenic properties. Of course, wool is well known for its breathability, making it a superb choice for winter and actually any time that you want your feet not to get too moist.
*Please note, what looks like shrinkage occurs with all socks over the course of months and years. The socks can be worn as their labeled size despite their initially apparent size.
