Japanese Slub Socks – Black

Soft marled socks crafted in Japan on vintage knitting machines, which results in a looser, more comfortable knit than modern machines. Crafted from a breathable cotton and hemp blend and lightly ribbed, each sock is tubular knitted making them extremely comfortable to wear. This method also means the socks will not twist on the ankle, or go out of shape when washing, and will shape to the wearer's foot over time.
  • Made in Japan
  • Mid-rise socks
  • 65% cotton / 20% acrylic / 15% hemp
Machine washable. Maximum 40°C wash
We recommend the conscious choice of 30°C
