The Companion socks

Are for men, woman and children. Have a cushioned sole, ribbed leg and lightly elasticated welt. Are extremely hard wearing and will last for ages. Are resilient and will keep their shape after many months of wear! Are odour resistant (smooth mohair fibres have nowhere for smelly foot bacteria to lurk). Can be machine washed at 40⁰c (see washing instructions). Are available in 19 colours.

Fibre Content: 68% Mohair, 32% JAS Nylon

Why add nylon? Mohair itself has relatively little elasticity and so we add nylon to give extra stretch. The nylon does not detract from the beneficial effects of the mohair.

Caring for your socks

“In 25 years the mohair fibre and ingredients of your Corrymoor Socks haven't changed…..but detergents and washing machines have.”

So what is the best way to care for your Corrymoors?

  • Do not use detergents containing enzymes—check the detergent packaging
  • Wool wash at 40°c
  • Use a gentle spin (most wool washes will incorporate this into the cycle anyway)
  • Do not tumble dry
  • Wash dark colours separately at first

A Bit of Science and tips on washing
Mohair is a fibre made up of the protein keratin (like your own hair, silk, wool and other animal fibres). The scales of the mohair fibre are flattened and overlay each other giving a smooth surface (unlike wool). This gives mohair its smooth handle and high lustre and your Corrymoor Socks their unique hard-wearing, anti-bacterial (no smell), wicking and non-felting properties.

Mohair has a much greater resistance to shrinking and felting than other natural fibres, but it too finds it hard to resist the action of the protease enzymes found in many of the “low temperature” detergents. Sadly, the enzymes cannot tell the difference between dirt and the protein fibres of the mohair which can ultimately weaken and breakdown resulting in slight shrinkage and felting of your beloved Corrymoors.

For your Information (although we do not recommend you try this out at home)
Corrymoors are dyed in water which reaches boiling point, this is then followed by rinsing AND spinning AND tumble drying!

The BEST welly socks, ever!

I was fortunate enough to get given a pair of these fabulous socks. I wore them all weekend at a festival and my feet were warm, dry and fresh (even after 3 days of use). I shall be getting many more pairs!

    My last two pairs of socks lasted nearly ten years despite being used daily in wellies for dog-walking. What more could I ask?

      22 years since my first order!

      I first bought a batch of Companion socks soon after they were mentioned in an article in the Telegraph in about 1994.
      I am now just in the middle of ordering my 4th or 5th batch, and I would never wear anything else. They last for ages and ages, are comfortable, don't give me sweaty feet, and cope with all temperatures (I have worn them with sandals on snow, and in the height of summer in Australia when it's reached 37C). The service is good too (I was once emailed just before Christmas to be told that because of demand, all hands were working through the night to get the orders out!). That's dedication for you!
      Very highly recommended.

        Excellent

        Was given a pair of Companion (navy marl) as a present for Christmas. I honestly have never owned such a comfortable pair of socks and have walked miles and miles in them ( both in wellies and walking boots). They have never been washed and yet still look (and smell!) as new. Highly recommended.
