Latvia, the country of forest and lakes, bordering the Baltic Sea. The patterns used in the traditional mittens are different depending on the region and often contain meaning found in nature. These socks are based on the motif of the cold, deep forest and the flowers that live boldly within.
Materials: Cotton, acrylic, 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 Dralon cotton yarn, a cotton and acrylic mix yarn. Cotton by itself tends to result in socks that gradually become rougher and stiffer over many washes and wears. Acrylic is a good material for socks, as it brings and maintains softness. Some other features of Dralon cotton: hypo-allergenic, easy to clean, quick-drying and odor-resistant.
