Bamboo socks - puffins
These fair trade bamboo socks are supersoft and great to wear. The breathable fabric absorbs 40% more moisture than cotton, so they keep your feet fresh, dry and comfortable. They are naturally anti-bacterial and durable and come in a range of stunning designs. We love to visit nearby Skomer island to see the puffins in the spring and these great socks, with their happy pattern of puffins are an all year round reminder.
Yarn: 75% bamboo viscose, 22% polyamide, 3% elastine
These socks are made by Fair Trade producers in India. Bamboo grows without the need for fertilisers or pesticides and naturally requires a third of the water required to grow cotton. This means that the farmers don’t need to irrigate their crops, saving water in a country where water shortages are a big problem. Bamboo yields are also ten times higher per hectare than cotton and the plant rarely needs replanting, sprouting on its own.
These socks come with no plastic packaging - the cardboard label is sewn on rather than having one of those horrible hang tags!
