The yarn blend is spun from the wool of three sheep breeds in order to make the perfect woolen-like qualities for a sock; warmth, breathability and a pleasant soft feel on the bare feet. Every pair of socks created by the Helsinki Woolen Socks Factory can absorb up to 30-40% of their weight without feeling wet due to the hygroscopic animal fiber they are made from.
Unlike other fibers, wool is odor resistant, so you wool socks will smell better than socks made from other fibers, meaning you can wear them multiple times before you start to get odd looks from people. Check out the full care instructions below.
By letting your wool socks air overnight, there’s a high chance you can wear them again the next day and they will continue to feel fresh and comfortable, and won't smell.
But, when it does come time to wash your wool socks, treat them the same as washing most wool clothes.
The 30-degree (Fahrenheit) machine wash and short spin fit perfectly to our woolen towels. We recommend using a ph neutral detergent (pH 7).
In manual washing, washing and flushing water should be at a temperature of less than 104 degrees (Fahrenheit). Large fluctuations in hot and cold water and strong abrasion can cause the wool to fall.
Wool yarns are good to form wet and dry at low temperatures. We do not recommend drying woolen socks in excess of 158 degrees (Fahrenheit), for example, with hot water on a radiator, in a sauna or too close to a fire. Thanks to its breathability, the wool dries quite heavily without high heat.
Finally, it should be mentioned that in active use the wool yarn gradually stretches, and the wig looses its original shape. Regular washing at a suitable temperature will restore the shape of the woolen jacket, and even slightly damp woolen wigs can easily be customized to their feet by simply putting them in their feet as a bit of washcloth.
