The Companion socks

For men, woman and children. Have a cushioned sole, ribbed leg and lightly elasticated welt. Extremely hard wearing and will last for ages. Resilient and will keep their shape after many months of wear! Odour resistant (smooth mohair fibres have nowhere for smelly foot bacteria to lurk). Can be machine washed at 40⁰c (see washing instructions). Available in 18 plain and 4 marl 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!

                                          Reply from Corrymoor Socks

                                          Thank you very much for your kind comments about our socks.
                                          The mailbags we currently use are made from recyclable LDPE 4 (Low density polyethylene) and can be reused again by you as well as recycled (see label on bag). However, whether LDPE 4 products can be collected at the kerbside and recycled does depend on your council’s recycling policy. For small and much larger orders we do use cardboard packaging. However, it is debatable just how environmental cardboard is as the manufacture of cardboard/paper can be environmentally poor when it comes to energy, resource and pollution from manufacturing.

                                          I have spent many hours researching the most secure and environmentally friendly way for us to mail our socks. It is a challenge to find the correct solution as how people and councils deal with waste varies enormously across the country as well as from rural to urban areas. Environmentally friendly packaging is changing rapidly and new and better solutions are being produced all the time. We will be using home compostable mailbags once the current batch of LDPE 4 bags is finished. Unless I find an even better alternative!
                                          Many thanks.

                                            Great socks shame about the plastic bag they are delivered in. Such an effort is made to cut the socks packaging itself it would be nice if they could be delivered in cardboard packaging as opposed to plastic bags.

                                                  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.

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.
