Linen cupra 5 toe socks｜22-24cm｜Off-white
Five finger socks made of linen cupra.
By adding cupra to the linen material, the strength against rubbing has been increased. Areas that are prone to rubbing, such as toes and heels, become stronger. Cupra is a material made from short cotton seed fibers that are produced when cotton thread is made. Although it is sometimes used as the lining of suits, we use linen as the main material and add cupra to supplement its strength. Compared to linen knit socks, it has less luster, luster, and crispness, and has a smooth texture similar to cotton.
The comfort is mainly made of linen material, so it does not get stuffy and is easy to dry. Compared to linen knit socks made of 90% linen, they are slightly less crisp, but they are cool and comfortable to wear. The opening is not too tight, and it is comfortable to wear for a long time without feeling tight.
Both the thickness and the appearance can be worn all year round regardless of the season. It goes great with summer shoes such as canvas sneakers and leather sandals.
Shorter design with 5 fingers, material that is more resistant to rubbing. These socks are more casual and can be worn for active occasions.
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.
