'The Best Socks A Bloke In Boots Can Wear!'

59% Bamboo - 26% Cotton - 10% Polyester - 5% Elastane

 If you always thought that bamboo was that stuff that grows like crazy, makes a mess of rockeries and paths when it gets out of control, and is really hard to get rid of once it's established  -  You're Right! But bamboo has some enormous redeeming qualities which the Chinese have known about for thousands of years, but we Westerners are only just 'cottoning onto' (sorry about that!?)  -  One of the more recent discoveries about the humble bamboo plant is that the crushed and treated residue from specific varieties of the harvested plant, can be used to produce an amazing textile fibre.

So What's So Special About Bamboo Fibre? 

It's an amazing fibre, simply because it's got some amazing properties which are not found in the 'one package' in any other textile fibre!   -  This makes it the perfect choice for many items of clothing!As well as having superior strength, shape, washability, colourfastness, and shrink fastness properties, bamboo fibre is unbelievably soft and comfortable against the skin  -  described as having a similar feel to cashmere!

Perhaps even more impressively, bamboo fibre :
  • Has natural bacterial inhibitors.
  • Is highly absorbent (60% more than cotton), and breathable.
  • Is thermo regulating  -  cooling in summer, warming in winter.
  • Is produced without the use of harsh insecticides, serious pollutants or land degradation, and manufactured with minimal chemical input!

What Does All This Mean For A Humble Pair Of Socks?


Anti-bacterial Properties

Bamboo has been grown for thousands of years in Asia without the use of pesticides. It is rarely attacked by any pests and is not susceptible to disease. Scientific studies have found that the reason for this is a unique anti-bacterial agent within bamboo named 'bamboo-kun'. This substance, combined with the tight molecular structure of bamboo fibres, gives it its anti-bacterial and bacteriostatic properties  -  which do not diminish after 50 or more washes. It is also quite different from chemical additives which can often cause skin irritations and other problems.

Various scientific tests have been performed at laboratories around the world studying the anti-bacterial properties of bamboo fibre. One recent 24 hour analysis found that bacteria introduced to bamboo fibre had reduced to less than 0.2% of the original, whereas the same experiment with cotton showed a bacteria increase of 550 times the original! (Refer :- 

What Does This Mean

Body odour results from gases produced by bacteria which live on the waste which is exuded from our bodies  -  sweat, and dead skin cells which our bodies give off constantly as a perfectly natural part of living.

When a bamboo fibre is worn against the skin :

  • Any moisture (sweat) is immediately absorbed and taken away from the skin.
  • The powerful natural anti-bacterial properties of the bamboo constantly keeps bacteria populations in check.

Some people are particularly susceptible to smelly feet because they shed more dead cells from their feet than others, or they have specific personal bacteria which give off that offensive smell. Though no less hygienic than others, their feet just pong! It is rare to find anyone who has not been instantly cured of this condition through wearing bamboo socks. 

Washing work socks every day is a natural thing because they do get smelly regardless of who you are, however, although we don't recommend it, bamboo socks, with their natural anti-bacterial properties can be worn for several days or more and still smell fresh!
