Our natural fibre, unisex socks are kinder to your feet than synthetic alternatives, but this means they need a gentle wash. We recommend our alpaca and wool socks are gently hand washed in tepid water and rinsed out by hand, squeezing the water rather than wringing the socks. A vigorous spin or long machine wash with too much detergent may result in shrinkage. If you chose to wash your socks in the machine, please select the special wool cycle. Choosing a low temperature on its own is not enough as felting and shrinkage is also caused by too much agitation.
Leave to dry naturally away from direct heat and do not put in a tumble dryer.
If you would like some yarn to darn your Arbon socks, please contact me and if I still have some or can find a suitable alternative, I will post it out to you.
