Mercerised cotton socks are so hard to find. They are so much stronger and last so much longer. In fact, my husband used to go through work socks within months, but the mercerised have lasted up to 10 years. Thus, all of my previous suppliers no longer have them, so I am so excited to find them here... Yay!!
The socks were very thin and also quite long. I was expecting something a little thicker.
Hi Caroline, Thanks for your feedback and sorry you weren't 100% happy with your purchase. This sock is Mercerised cotton so, as per the description, it is a lightweight sock and is meant to be thinner than the average sock. Mercerised cotton is a finer yarn than a standard cotton yarn so is definitely a better choice for someone who likes a thinner, lightweight sock. If you would prefer a standard thickness sock a good choice would be our 95% Cotton Soft Sock and for a bit thicker sock a good choice would be the Mid-Weight Cotton Sock. Thanks, Andrea LAFITTE
Great quality, comfortable socks. Also great service.
As they are mercerised the material is quite fine and not as thick us normal socks. So far they have washed well, no shrinkage (which is the point of mercerising). They are comfortable and seem to breathe Ok.
