These socks are based on the traditional rug motifs found in the small New Mexico town called Chimayo. The hand-pulled Chimayo yarn is dyed by plants and dried mud. These socks are based on the image of the deep blue sky over the arid landscape, the blue of the lakes, at various depths, and of the multitude of colors of soil.
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.
