    I’ve been wearing these as my go-to autumn and winter socks for a while. They’re comfortable and warm but not too warm for day-to-day wear. I wear the heavier Cumbria socks for longer walks or hikes, but the Ayrshire provide a bit of daily luxury and are lighter weight.

    I am a Japanese living in Tokyo. Here in Japan Mohair Sock is hardly getable in the local market.
    Mohair is the best material for Socks in every season, not only in winter but also in summer.
    So Capricorn net shop site is must for me.
    I wear Ayrshire for daily use as it gives me comfortable walks in any occasion.

    Terrifically warm without being too bulky. I suffer from cold feet and I find that the Ayrshire sock also doubles as a terrific bed sock. You don’t need to keep them on in bed for too long just wait until your tootsies are like toast and then you can take them off!!

    Have to say that I was a little sceptical about the claims of these socks but I’m delighted to say that they were correct! I’ve worn them on some decent length walks and they’re comfortable and it’s true, they don’t smell. Will definitely be purchasing a few more pairs!

    I bought 2 pairs. One pair was slightly smaller than the other and the elastic was a bit tight. Other than that, great socks with no gimmicky elasticated bits that I think impedes blood flow to the toes.

    I have a number of pairs of Capricorn socks. The two pairs of walking shoe socks I own (red and cream) are inconsistent in their sizing. The cream pair are smaller and the elastic is tighter. Apart from this, they are very good socks. No fancy elasticated panels to cut off the circulation to your toes.
    More availability in colours would enable me to tell them apart in my sock-drawer!

Add a review

Warm and Comfortable

Mohair is a fibre that is well known for its properties of warmth and comfort. It therefore produces socks that are ideal when you want warm and comfortable feet

Hard Wearing

Mohair is a very hard wearing fibre and is used for fabrics in aircraft seats for this reason. Many of our customers tell us that they have purchased ‘good quality’ socks from well known stores and they have worn out within 3 or 4 months. Whereas their Capricorn Mohair Socks are still wearing well!

Machine Washable

You can wash your Mohair socks in a washing machine on a warm wool wash cycle, without worrying about excessive shrinkage. When we visit shows selling our socks it’s not unusual for customers to proudly bring their Capricorn Mohair Socks they bought the previous year and show us how well they have worn and washed.

Do not smell after use!

If you look at wool under a microscope you see little burrs. These burrs provide a hiding place for bacteria that make wool socks smell. Mohair is a smooth fibre and has no hiding places for bacteria and that is why Mohair Socks do not smell!!

WASHING

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, socks 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.
