Woolen Socks with Felt Sole
For the closed winter shoe.
A double knit, stout yarn made of combed pure new wool (Nm 28/2 x 2) is knitted with a cotton thread (Nm 34) to reinforce the structure and improve the moisture transport, and so that the soft cotton is in contact with the skin. The heavily strained parts of the socks are additionally strengthened with a felted merino wool thread. This felted wool sole diffuses out the moisture efficiently and insulates perfectly against the cold. The socks are hand-looped.
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.
