    NEW! Part of Woollykins' new Summer and activewear range of natural fibre socks! 

    Sports socks for adults in a light and breathable blend of 70% organic Merino wool and 30% linen made in Germany by Hirsch-Natur. With a mid rise cuff and perfectly shaped for comfort. Excellent as active wear for the gym, yoga, jogging and all sorts of sports as well as lovely everyday wear.

    Wool feels comfortable and dry, even when you sweat. It can absorb a lot of humidity (up to 33% of its dry weight) and doesn't feel cold or wet when damp. 

    Sizes: 36/37, 38/39, 40/41, 42/43 (see below for size chart)

    Colours: Red Melange, Navy Melange

    Brand Hirsch Natur
    Designed in: Germany
    Origin of Fibre: Merino sourced from certified organic farming in Patagonia
    Country of manufacture: Spun in Europe. Knitted and manufactured in Germany.
    Certifications: NATURTEXTIL IVN certified BEST (IVN BEST) organic
    Fabric structure: Knitted from 70% certified organic merino wool and 30% linen. A few threads of elastane are also sewn into the top inch of the cuff - these threads make up 0.3-0.5% of total fibres.
    Biodegradability: Wool and linen fibres are 100% biodegradable. Before composting, remove the elastane threads from the cuff to dispose of separately.
    Machine Washable: Yes (see our guide to washing wool)

    Care: Air between uses, only wash when required, handwash or gentle machine wash max 30 degrees on wool cycle with wool wash only. All wool socks will wear through faster than socks with nylon. Darn for life long love.

    More about wool socks: These Hirsch natur socks are made from 70% unprocessed organic merino wool and handwashing is recommended. 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.
