For a better life, we should have healthy socks.
What is a healthy sock? What determines the quality level of socks? In this article, we will give some tips about how we can define quality and what we should pay attention to.
Healthy Socks Determiners
Basic material or the raw material is the key element. For better quality, the product should have more qualified material. First of all, the material or threads should be natural. So many different and harmful materials like nylon, are preferred for production in the industry. These products are cheaper, not qualified and harmful to the users. A well quality thread has features of;
- Not making sweat in hot weather,
- Don’t let chill in cold weather,
- Adapt to the weather conditions easily.
Good quality socks have some distinctive features. The important ones are:
- They are made from good threads,
- Very tight with the feet,
- Upperparts will not bore,
- The front part will not have any stitch,
- It should make you feel comfortable.
The aim of the socks is to protect our feet from outer effects. But, we should pay attention to some issues. In winter conditions, well-insulation socks would be preferred instead of thick socks. On the other hand, socks that won’t make your feet sweat should be preferred during the summer times.
Healthy Socks Thread Types
The cost-efficient and daily use socks are generally made from cotton and its derivatives. For healthy socks, we should prefer good quality threads. Here we will give some important features of well-known threads:
Bamboo thread is mostly produced in China and a trendy material for socks manufacturing. Some of the features are:
- It is very soft, natural as material and very appropriate to weave,
- It can be mixed with different materials and shine when painted,
- Resistant to ultraviolet, anti-bacterial and non-allergic with the bamboo Kun material inside,
Bamboo thread is a very good moist absorber and helpful to the skin to have enough air with the conductance structure. It is not resistant to the outer effects so much and can get deform but it is so comfortable and healthy. These specialties make bamboo a mostly preferred new material.
Modal is made of the beech tree and a totally natural thread. It is resistant to deforms and transfers moist which makes it a good choice especially in a wet climate. Pilling is not seen in modal that much.
This can be manufactured from eucalyptus, willow, poplar trees and it is cellulose like cotton. Viscose has a high-moist absorb-ability that makes it eligible for painting and printing process. The colors are shiny with viscose.
Cashmere is a thread derived from the type of a goat that lives in the Kashmir region of India. It is alike silk and expensive because it is rare and hard to derive. It is shinier than wool and has the natural colors of black, white, yellow, beige and brown.
It is the traditional thread that derived from mostly sheep, but also less from goat, camel or rabbit. The quality wool is thin and it is dyed before the weaving process. As the wool threads contain compressed air particles in its structure, it is effective for protecting the body from cold.
Silk is another traditional thread derived from the silkworm. It has a beautiful, soft, shiny and resistant structure and reflects the colors wonderfully. It is more resistant to fracture but less flexible than wool and sensitive against heat. As it is so hard to derive and the amount is less, the real silk is an expensive material.
