Bamboo socks - turquoise stripe
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. Stripey socks are always popular, and this combination of turquoise, terracotta and green is cheerful without being too bright for more conservative tastes!
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!
