If you’ve never tried on a pair of bamboo socks, you really don’t know what you’re missing out on. Not only are bamboo socks INCREDIBLY soft, but they boast a whole host of health and comfort benefits for your feet. We also have a range of Bamboo underwear for complete comfort all round.
Bamboo fibre’s ability to regulate temperature means that bamboo socks and underwear are ideal to wear all year round – keeping you two to three degrees cooler than cotton in warm weather, and helping to keep the heat in when it turns cold outside. This happens thanks to a series of microgaps in the structure of bamboo fibre, which is also what makes bamboo breathable and helps it to wick away moisture, keeping you dry and comfortable.

WHAT MAKES BAMBOO THE NATURAL CHOICE?
Bamboo is 100% naturally grown, without assistance from man, and is 100% sustainable. It thrives naturally without using any pesticides or fertilisers and the fibre is 100% biodegradable.
At a microscopic level, bamboo has a rounded, smooth surface, giving it a beautifully soft texture which sits perfectly next to skin.
Cool (and warm)
Microgaps in bamboo’s structure allow better ventilation than other fibres, which means it’s two to three degrees cooler in warm weather, but very warm in cold weather.
Microgaps make bamboo three to four times more absorbent than cotton, and allow for better ventilation – so moisture is absorbed and evaporated (or ‘wicked away’), leaving you drier and more comfortable.
As a completely natural fibre, bamboo is a great choice for allergy-prone skin. Its rounder and smoother surface, and ability to absorb and wick away moisture also means it doesn’t stick to skin, so there’s less chance of uncomfortable abrasion.
Bamboo has particular natural antibacterial functions, bacteriostasis and deodorisation value. This is especially useful for bamboo socks, as it allows them to keep feet healthier and fresher for longer because the fabric naturally stops bacteria from spreading.
