Foot Care for Sock Longevity

Do keep your nails trimmed. Because the socks hug the curvature of your toes, any sharp or elongated bits of nail sticking out, will make holes in your socks quick.

What the fluff!

Fluffy after the first wear? Pilling balls forming?

This is very normal for all socks and particularly those with natural wool fibers blended in.

You'll notice in your first 1-2 wears, that fluff comes off the socks! For the uninitiated, this can cause some real concerns about quality and durability but never fear. For high-quality merino yarn, the extraneous loose fibers in the twist shed in the first wear and this is completely normal for socks with merino wool and after the first few wears it stops. It has no impact on quality or longevity.

Pilling? This happens gradually, particularly in the areas of high friction in socks. Pilling is when small little balls form on the surface and can make clothes look worn and shabby.

What can you do to remove pilling on socks?

You can simply use a fabric shaver or sweater comb to remove them. We find this easiest to do when wearing the socks.
