    True Hygge Scandi Cosiness! These beautiful Jacquard Fairisle knitted socks are super special, knitted from 100% organic wool.

    Wool feels comfortable and dry, even when you sweat. It can absorb a lot of moisture (up to 33% of its dry weight). Air between uses, wash only when required. Airing for 3 days seems to be the magic number to fully restore. I know they feel lovely but avoid continuous use with socks knitted from 100% wool, the fibres need to rest so alternate with another pair and you'll have them a whole lot longer. Mend worthy for life. See info below about ALL-WOOL socks... 

    BrandHirsch Naturest 1928.
    Designed in: Germany
    Origine of Fibre: Sourced from certified organic farming in Patagonia
    Country of manufacture: Wool spun in Europe. Dyed, knitted and hand finished in Germany by Hirsch Natur.
    Certifications: NATURTEXTIL IVN certified BEST (IVN BEST) organic
    Fabric structure: Knitted from 100% certified organic merino wool. No nylon or synthetics other than a few strings of elastane sewn into the top inch of the cuff to stop the socks from falling down - these make up 0.3-0.5% of total fibres.
    Biodegradability: Wool fibres are 100% biodegradable. Before composting, remove the few elastane threads from the cuff to dispose of separately, or cut away top inch to re-use as a hair-tie, garden tie, etc.
    Machine Washable: No (see our guide to washing wool)

    More about 100% wool socks. Hirsch natur socks are made from 100% unprocessed organic merino wool and are Handwash only. Best to air your socks for three days if you feel they need a wash. Hirsch Natur recommend washing every 6 weeks. Alternate with another pair so you don’t wear them continuously, they need a break! They don’t have any nylon in them so with lots of wear the wool will start to wear down and then it’s time to reinforce them or mend any holes that are starting to develop, like in days of old. Because you don’t need to wash them very often, handwashing them doesn’t take too long and will save them from washing machine mishaps.

    Colours: Graphite/Natural, Red/Natural, Navy/Natural

    Care: Air for 3 days to clean. Handwash or gentle cold wool machine cycle with wool shampoo - only when required. Please treat these socks with the same care and love you'd give to a handknitted sock. Always wear with sock savers (slippers!) to reduce wear and tear on your quality 100% wool socks. All wool socks will wear through faster than socks with nylon. Darn for life long love. 

    Sizing: (true to size) 
    To ensure your socks are not subject to unnecessary friction be sure to choose a well fitted sock. Don't size up.
