Do I have to Hand wash?
We recommend that you wash Capricorn Socks on a warm wash cycle 40 Degrees, or hand wash. Do NOT tumble dry
Do the colours run?
We advise that you wash the socks separately for the first few times, just in case.
Do they shrink?
Not normally, if you follow the washing instructions correctly
What do I do if I wash them in water that is too hot?
Use hair conditioner, soak your socks in hair conditioner and it will loosen the fibres up again. This method is also a great way to give your socks a new ‘lease of life’
NYLON IN THE SOCKS
Why do you add nylon to the Mohair?
Mohair has lots of strength and resistance to abrasion, but not much elasticity – so we add a special sort of nylon which augments the nylon but doesn’t detract from it’s benefits.
WHY DON’T THEY SMELL?
Come on, why don’t they smell?
The fibres of sheep’s wool have scales on them, but mohair fibres are smooth so there is nowhere for foot bacteria to hide. No bacteria = No smell
ALLERGIES AND CIRCULATION PROBLEMS
I have poor circulation – can I wear Capricorn Mohair Socks?
The loose top Sussex style don’t have an elastic top, instead they are ribbed to make them stay up. These socks also have a ‘linked toe’ in them to so you don’t have that horrible ridge under your toes. We sell lots of these socks to diabetics and people with circulation problems.
I am allergic to wool – can I wear your socks?
Being a hair, you could argue that it is more natural to wear mohair than wool from sheep. We have lots of customers with sensitive skin who wear our sock without any trouble. If you do have sensitive skin, why not try a pair of our cream coloured socks, they are not dyed to are kinder and softer on your feet.
