WHAT'S THE BIG DEAL ABOUT EGYPTIAN COTTON?

So you've heard us mention it loads of times and now you're curious, what's the big deal about Egyptian cotton?!

Well, to start with, Egyptian cotton is grown in one of the most fertile places on Earth, the River Nile! Unlike regular cotton, which is picked by a machine, Egyptian cotton is hand picked, which results in longer cotton fibres.

Those longer cotton fibres mean that the end result is a material which is softer than regular cotton, more durable and kinder to your skin (so perfect for those with sensitive skin)! It's no wonder why Egyptian cotton is regarded as a luxurious material then! 

In fact, Egyptian cotton is more commonly used for luxury bed sheets, however, we thought our feet shouldn't miss out on the comfort so we decided we wanted our men's socks to be the highest quality and most luxury Egyptian cotton socks out there! So why not treat your feet?! All of the above and below factors are what make our sock gift boxes for him so special!

SUPER SOFT

Egyptian cotton is softer than regular cotton, giving our socks that indulgent luxury sock feel! The softer material and longer fibres also means that Egyptian cotton socks are perfect for those with sensitive skin and less likely to irritate you! 

MORE DURABLE

Egyptian cotton has longer cotton fibres than regular cotton, meaning that our Egyptian cotton socks are more durable than regular cotton socks

FUN AND VIBRANT

Egyptian cotton absorbs dye better than regular cotton, so you can be sure our luxury socks are the most fun, vibrant and colourful socks possible!

ETHICALLY MADE

We also know that being ethical is important, which is why we're proud to say our manufacturer is ISO 14001:2015 accredited and only obtains its yarn from suppliers who are OEKO-Tex trademarked (i.e. suppliers who do not use any chemicals which are harmful to humans, the environment or animals in their yarn)

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Lovely socks, which feel soft  and are a good size. So hard to get large socks that are a bit different and great to give as a gift. Will  shop here again!

Emma

I love these socks! They’re so cosy, good quality and remain in great shape after multiple washes. So much so that I’ve ordered some packs for my family for Christmas. Customer service is also really good and my order came in a timely manner. Couldn’t recommend more!
