WOAD DYED HAND LINKED COTTON SOCKS

£25.00 (inc VAT) £20.83 (exc VAT)

Tender's rib socks are knitted and hand linked in England from raw unbleached cotton and nylon yarns, then dip dyed by hand with woad indigo from the South of France. 

Traditional hosiery (like these socks) is knitted as a long continuous tube of many socks, which are then cut apart into individual socks. These are then linked, which means that the open sock has the two sides knitted together, leaving a flat, seamless, join at the toe. Linking requires the operator to loop every corresponding stitch of the top and bottom of the sock, by hand, onto a knitting machine. 

Tender's socks are made with a loop-back, or terry, double knit sole. This makes them especially comfortable, and appropriate to wear even with heavy boots.

As woad dye only colours fibres where they are exposed to air during dyeing, the interior of the knit, especially inside the rib, doesn't dye as dark as the outer yarns, giving the socks a unique marl effect, especially around the rib, when they are worn.
