Fequently Asked Questions

Product & Packaging

What sizes are your socks available in?

Our socks range from sizes 4 to 11. However, not all socks are available in all sizes.

Where are our socks made?

Our Socks are made in Northern England from yarn spun and dyed in traditional mills, by some of the worlds best experts in wool hosiery production. Our natural sustainable fibres are truly better for your feet and better for the environment.

How do I properly care for your socks?

Merino Everyday

We use best quality natural fibres available to produce our Socks. Fine Merino wool is delicate and during washing susceptible to damage by coming into contact with other course fabrics in ‘the wash’ therefore we recommend you turn your socks inside out before washing to protect them.

Please follow the washing instructions below:

  • Machine wash on a Gentle / Delicate Setting in a ‘warm wash’ not exceeding 40 degrees Centigrade or 105 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Do NOT Bleach
  • Do NOT Tumble Dry
  • Do NOT Iron
  • Do NOT Dry Clean

Our natural Alpaca fibre, unisex socks are kinder to your feet than synthetic alternatives, but this means they need a gentle wash.

We recommend our Alpaca & Blue Faced Leicester socks are gently hand washed in tepid water and rinsed and wrung out by hand (a vigorous machine wash or spin with too much detergent may result in shrinkage).

Leave to dry naturally and do not put in a tumble dryer.
