Cotton Lisle is produced exclusively from extra long staple Egyptian cotton resulting in a durable yarn. A process of double mercerisation is used where stray fibres are removed with a flame and the yarn is smoothed to create a uniform appearance. This process enhances the natural sheen of the yarn and gives it a resistance to pilling. Mercerisation gives the yarn better absorption qualities and reduces shrinkage. The tightly woven mercerised cotton is composed of two strands that have each been twisted an extra twist per inch compared to ordinary yarns and combined to create a single thread. It is used for its superior strength, durability and enhanced colour.

These socks are made with 80% Cotton Lisle and 20% Nylon combined to last and for everyday comfort. They are knitted in England on a 200 needle double cylinder machine with a fine linked toe with an 8 x 2 Rib. The following points make this quality hosiery so special:

  • Generous elastic top for comfort
  • Increased knitting tension for a better fit
  • Fine linked toe for seamless comfort
  • Reinforced heel and toe for added durability
  • Plain foot bottom for added comfort

These socks can be machine washed in a wool wash at 40°. To avoid shrinkage, use a cool temperature for drying or preferably dry naturally.
