Hemp Cotton 5 Toe Socks｜22-24cm｜Light Gray
Hemp is a kind of "hemp", which translates to "marijuana" in Japanese. Linen (flax, flax) is the same companion. Therefore, it has excellent water absorption and dries quickly. In addition, hemp has antibacterial and antibacterial properties, so it also has a deodorizing function. The texture is almost the same as linen.
It contains 44% hemp and 36% cotton, so it has a higher percentage of cotton than other Kenland socks. This is the material ratio to achieve structural strength as a five-toe sock, and the texture is a mixture of the luster and coolness of hemp and the smooth texture of cotton.
For those who are accustomed to wearing cotton socks, I think you can wear them as usual.
Five-toe socks have the advantage of being hygienic by covering the areas where sweat tends to remain between the toes of ordinary socks. A combination of the two seems to be more effective. The opening is not too tight, and it is comfortable to wear for a long time without feeling tight.
Recommended for those who like 5 toe socks and those who want to try hemp material socks.
Like other linen knit products, it can be washed at home. As for the washing method, it can be machine washed, and there is no special care to be taken except to use a net to prevent snagging.
A factory specializing in linen knitwear located in Yamagata Prefecture, where the knitting industry is thriving.
Linen is most often used as a woven fabric, and knits (knitted) are rarely seen. Kenland, which has long continued to manufacture collection brand knit products centered on wool, has perfected linen knit technology through years of research, and now specializes in linen knit and produces it as its own brand.
To make linen into a knit, the machines and manufacturing methods are different from those of weaving, so detailed management and accumulation of techniques such as thread making, knitting, and dyeing are required. The finished fabric itself and the suitable use are also different.
Of course, linen's high water absorption, quick-drying, fastness, coolness, and glossy texture of the thread are the same. On the other hand, there are also aspects such as "it is easy to wrinkle" and "it is taut and a little hard at first". The knitted structure of linen knit creates elasticity, does not wrinkle, and has a soft texture.
In addition, unlike wool knits, it can be machine washed. "Linen material x knit technology" has advantages that other combinations do not have.
Since there are various types of knitting, the appearance and stretchability of each are different. Having supported the knit production of collection brands for many years, the development of colors is also attractive.
I think that there are many people who are new to linen knit, but it is a material that I would like you to try once.

[Handling and care]
Dehydration is possible with a washing machine at home using a laundry net. In the case of hand washing, machine washing is recommended as the load varies depending on the part. Use a laundry net to prevent snagging.
When drying, it is recommended to dry flat. Please refrain from hanger drying as the fabric will stretch due to its own weight.
Avoid tumble drying as the fabric may shrink or become too soft.
Knitted fabrics become softer with every wash. Linen is a fiber that separates, so there will be dust at first due to the nature of the material, but this is not a problem. Please take the waste that came out.
