    There are 5 main materials used to make socks. These materials each have their own benefits depending on what you need the sock for. Are the socks for everyday use, formal wear or for hiking? Do your feet sweat a lot, or do your feet get really cold in the winter?

    These are questions you should ask yourself before purchasing a pair of socks, as the different materials vary greatly in their capabilities. Polyester, cotton, and wool are the most common materials used to make socks, but bamboo is quickly becoming one of the best.

    The information below will discuss each type of fabric used in the production of socks in more detail. It will explain what the beneficial uses of each fabric are and what type of sock each fabric should not be used for. It will also cover the various blends of fabric that work well to make the best functioning sock.

    Cotton is produced from the fibers of a cotton plant. It is the most common material used in the production of socks, and for various reasons. It is an excellent sock for everyday use, and when combined with different blends of fabric, it can make socks that are used for other purposes, such as outdoor activities and more.

    Here are some of the pros and cons of cotton socks:
    Very lightweight material that absorbs moisture well.
    Very soft material that provides comfort
    Easy to wash in a machine or by hand
    Absorbs moisture easily
    Can lead to friction and irritation if worn for extended periods while wet
    More expensive, especially organic and combined cotton

    After looking at the pros and cons of cotton, you will find that cotton works great for certain types of socks. Cotton socks function best for everyday use with casual shoes or sneakers. If you plan to physically exert yourself or expect your feet to become wet or sweaty, you will want to avoid 100% cotton socks.

    Cotton and polyester mixed socks can be used for almost any type of activity. They are durable, water-resistant, and comfortable. If you want to use your socks for aerobic activities as well as everyday wear, then a mix of cotton and polyester is the best choice.

    Wool is the most used material for manufacturing socks, only after cotton. The wool used is obtained from sheep or other animals and is of premium quality. Each of the wool fiber used is made using a number of coiled springs, that when stretched bounce back to their original shape. Socks made of wool are also wrinkle resistant and breathable.
    Wool yarn is often used to create thicker socks, mostly used during winters as they are bulky and lofty. Wool is great as an insulator as well and also keeps the feet of the user dry — thanks to their moisture absorbing nature. Socks made of wool are ideal for hiking and adventure activities.
    Stance uses premium quality wool that is known for its luxurious softness. Unlike the regular wool, this does not itch or shrink even after repeated use and washings. The socks made using premium quality wool are exceptionally comfortable and are known for their colorfastness as well.
    While cotton and wool are widely used materials in making socks, some of the other fibers are used too. Let us have a look at what are they.

    Nylon is widely used in sock making as the material is durable and is quite resistant. Nylon is ideal for making socks that undergo and a lot of stretching and pulling. Nylon socks also assimilate moisture when compared to socks made using fabrics other than cotton or wool.

    Polyester is pretty much the same as Nylon but is less expensive. Socks made of polyester are breathable and absorb moisture and can easily survive wear and tear as well.

    Bamboo vs Wool
    Wool socks are most definitely more suited for winter weather, as your feet will get way too hot in the warmer months. Unlike cotton, wool is a brilliant insulator and will ensure your feet stay toasty, even in the coldest conditions.

    Wool can also absorb high amounts of moisture, much more than cotton. Wool socks also keep their insulating properties, even when wet, meaning excess sweat or water won’t make your feet cold.

    Bamboo has incredible moisture wicking capabilities, being able to keep feet dry even if there is excess sweat. Bamboo socks are also very absorbent, due to the micro-gaps in the bamboo fibre.

    The main benefit of bamboo socks is their anti-bacterial abilities. Bamboo socks have a natural antimicrobial agent called “bamboo kun”, which is found in the bamboo fibre. This agent keeps your feet free of bacteria, and smelling fresh.

    Why Bamboo?
    Now that we have discussed the other main materials used to make socks, you may be asking: why did we choose bamboo? There is a very simple answer to that: everything cotton, wool, and polyester can do, bamboo can do better.

    Bamboo’s anti-bacterial capabilities are unmatched when it comes to sock material. “Bamboo kun” (the antimicrobial component found in the plant fibre itself) is what keeps our feet clean.

    Bamboo has great temperature control: it keeps you warm on cooler days, and cool on warm days. The material is breathable, much more so than most other materials, keeping your feet at a comfortable temperature throughout the day.

    If you suffer from any allergies or have any persistent skin irritations, bamboo is the perfect material for you. It is incredibly soft, and the combination of the breathability and temperature control ensures your skin won’t get irritated.

    Apart from being environmentally-friendly, and very efficient to produce, bamboo is one of the best materials to use for clothing. aungcrown pride ourselves on using bamboo In every pair of socks we create, thereby ensuring you receive high-quality, comfortable, and long-lasting product every time.
