Introducing Socko's brand new Recycled Range, made from 50% pre-consumer garment cutting waste cotton, such as t-shirts offcuts, which is colour sorted and spun with 33% polyester from recycled plastic bottles to create an innovative, high quality yarn. The remaining 17% comes when we plate our socks with ECONYL® regenerated nylon that is made from fishing nets for added durability.
We love how Emma includes a needle and thread, as well as a 3-step darning instruction guide with every pair of socks making each pair last as long as they can.
From the Maker:
In a world that is facing a lot of environmental problems, there seem to be a lot of solutions in the way we did things in the past. When it comes to fashion, the most sustainable thing that you can do is to wear your clothes for longer. We’ve made a robust product and are here to equip you with the skills to mend with pride. We call it Wear & Care.
We promote the idea of mending our socks rather than throwing them away. At Socko we promote visible mending, the idea that your repairing of the sock should be visible that's why every pair comes with a swatch of contrasting colour yarn and a darning needle.
