General Information

A Durable Combination. Merino Wool and Linen.

Yarns from Holstein linen and Merino wool have been combined for the knit of these socks. The tear- and abrasion-proof linen faces the inside of the shoe, and the feet are treated to the soft, warm and skin-friendly wool. They're made in the Münsterland region from the best materials. The materials are used untreated and stay that way during the processing. As is often the case with high-quality socks, an old machine park plays a role in their production. In this case, it's a circular knitting machine from the 1950s, which is capable of processing materials modern machines can't handle (linen, for example). Additionally, these machines can process different yarns and distribute them according to the shape of the item. For instance, the yarns are knitted into a thicker fabric wherever the load is high, or one kind of yarn is used for the inside and one for outside of the fabric. The result is a pair of socks with a magnificent fit, which is comfortable and durable.

All-Natural Quality. From the Münsterland.

These socks are, indeed, made in the Münsterland region. One company there has not become a victim of cheap imports. The hosiery factory went for “high specialising” in two respects (and in the word’s double meaning): highest quality of processing and selected materials. Notably, the raw materials are all-natural (and kept that way throughout the process chain). As is so often the case in textile production, a park of old machines contributes to the superior quality of the clothes. In this case, it is 1950s circular knitting machines of the Bentley-Komet brand. These machines are able to process materials that today’s devices fail at (linen, for example). Plus, they can distribute different yarns in a different manner over the shape of the hosiery goods: reinforced where the most stress occurs or a different yarn on the hosiery’s inside than on the outside. You won’t find socks so rich in material in better quality anywhere. The socks from the Münsterland come with an excellent fit, of unprecedented comfort, yet they are wear-resistant and durable.
