In the natural color of mohair, this is a knee length, medium weight sock for wellies or riding boots; and great to keep your legs warm under trousers! They are particularly good in hunting boots, ski and snowboarding boots, waders and walking boots. Mohair fibers are longer and inherently much stronger than cashmere, alpaca, wool or cotton and many synthetic fibers. Mohair has a very smooth outer surface with no scales compared to wool; this means that bacteria cannot attach themselves to the fiber. Sweat itself has no odor; bacteria metabolize sweat and the resulting chemical byproducts are what you smell. Since mohair socks are naturally antibacterial, odors don’t develop.
Now with reinforced heels and toes, these are made with our Reward 70% Mohair/30% Superwash Merino yarn with a little bit of lycra.
Small, Medium, Large
Since a very small percentage of the naturally colored wool fiber in these unique items isn’t “Superwash,” and some are made with stretchy Lycra too, we recommend that if you are machine washing them, please use cooler water temperatures in the delicate cycle. Please use minimal machine drying at low temperatures; or just set them on top of the dryer or over the edge of the laundry basket and they will air dry quickly! You can hand wash them also, but don’t worry, if they do sneak into the regular wash and dryer, they should return to size when you put them on; or if needed, you can dampen them again, or rinse them with hair conditioner and wear them to resize.
