The Navajo people, who live in the dry Arizona desert, where the river carves through the land over eons. They lived in “hogans”, the traditional dwelling that protected them from the harsh dryness and occasional sandstorm. These socks are an expression of the textured landscape of the Arizona desert.
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.
