What kind of socks, what kind of material do socks have

Socks can be said to be the most useful accessories. They can not only keep warm, but also protect the friction between feet and shoes, and keep feet dry and clean. Now a pair of nice socks can also increase personal charm. So how to choose a pair of nice and comfortable socks?

What kind of socks is good


What we wear most is pure cotton socks. Cotton has good hygroscopicity, moisture retention, heat resistance, alkali resistance and sanitation. It won't have any stimulation or side effect on human skin. It won't be harmful to human body if worn for a long time, and its sanitation is good.

Mercerized cotton

Mercerized cotton is a kind of common cotton fiber after mercerizing in concentrated alkali solution. This kind of cotton fiber not only has the same physical index performance, but also has better glossiness than the ordinary cotton fiber. For example, it has the composition of silk, feels smoother, is not easy to wrinkle, and has the characteristics of absorbing sweat of cotton.

Bamboo fiber

Bamboo fiber is the fifth largest natural fiber after cotton, hemp, wool and silk. Bamboo fiber has good air permeability, strong water absorption, good wear resistance and good dyeability. It also has natural antibacterial, bacteriostatic, acarid, deodorant and UV resistant functions.


It is mainly composed of an insoluble protein with good elasticity, fullness of hand, strong moisture absorption, good warmth retention, not easy to contaminate, soft luster and excellent dyeing. Due to its unique cashmere shrinkage, the size of the fabric can be guaranteed only after preshrunk treatment. The disadvantage is that it's hard to do.

Combed cotton

Comber is a kind of machine called comber, which is used to remove short fibers from common fibers and leave long and neat cotton fibers. Due to the removal of short cotton fiber and other fiber impurities, the cotton yarn spun with combed cotton is more delicate, and the hand feel of the finished product is smooth and comfortable, which belongs to the better quality of cotton. Combed cotton has more toughness and is not easy to Pille. The combed cotton yarn is smoother and smoother, and the surface of the fabric is flat without neps. The effect of dyeing is also good.

Polyester fiber

Compared with natural fiber, polyester has good elasticity and fluffy, and the socks woven are lighter. People used to wear really bright shirts just to enjoy their lightness. However, polyester has low moisture content, poor air permeability, poor dyeability, easy pilling and contamination.

Nitrile cotton

It belongs to blended yarn (usually the blending can complement the shortcomings of two raw materials). The commonly used proportion of nitrile cotton is 30% of acrylic fiber and 70% of cotton. It has a fuller hand, more wear-resistant, bright color, even sliver dry, and also has the function of absorbing sweat and deodorizing of cotton. Acrylic fiber is called artificial wool. With soft, bulky, not easy to dye, bright color, light resistant, antibacterial, not afraid of moth and other advantages.


Spandex is commonly known as elastic fiber, which has high elasticity and strong elasticity. Its stretch length can reach 5-7 times of the original fiber, and the textile products with spandex can keep the original profile. The components of socks must contain spandex to make socks produce elasticity and retraction, easier to wear, and make socks more close to feet, just like swimsuits, which can tightly wrap in the feet without slipping.


Synthetic fiber, like polyester, is commonly used for covering elastic fiber, becoming a frame, and sometimes used as a veil (nylon 100%), with excellent wear resistance, ranking first in common textile fibers, but does not absorb sweat and stink feet. If it is only used for weaving flowers, it will not affect the performance of socks basically. Nylon is similar to nylon in nature, strong and wear-resistant, and it is the most wear-resistant and strongest one of synthetic fibers. The weight is very light and the elasticity is good. Adding nylon in the socks can keep the elasticity of high strength.

Socks have many kinds of materials, but each material has different characteristics, its permeability, wear resistance, moisture absorption waiting are different. Let's introduce the advantages and disadvantages of these socks.

How to choose socks

1. The sock mouth and the sock tube shall be suitable for tightness, the sock bottom shall be loose, the sock heel shall be large, the sock surface shall be smooth, the rib shall be flush without skew, the needle texture shall be clear, and the pattern, the sock head and the sock heel shall be free of exposed needle.

2. Try to choose the same color as the inside of the shoes. Children's socks are preferred to light ones. The brighter the color, the more chemical ingredients will be added.

3. It's better to buy socks with cotton fiber and proper amount of elastic fiber.

4. We should also consider its use and wearing objects, such as comfort and breathability for daily wear, softness and wearability for sports wear, cotton socks that are both breathable and hygroscopic for sweaters, polyester socks and nylon socks that are less hygroscopic for those with dry feet, socks with simple structure, light color and smooth surface for children, and socks with dotted lines Socks exposed outside.
