  1. 5 out of 5

    Jim Lucas

    I have been wearing Capricorn socks for several years now. The most useful style for me is the Derbyshire, though I wear other styles for particular activities.

    These are the toughest socks I’ve ever worn, and also the most comfortable. Some pairs have “mysteriously” disappeared, though I suspect they’re now being worn by friends who have visited. After several years of wearing them “to death”, my remaining two pairs have developed some small holes. I’ll keep them for the day I get some mohair yarn to darn them with, but in the meantime, I’m ordering a few more pair.

    I am, of course, recommending them to my friends, since I want Capricorn to stay in business, but I expect it will be several years before I need to order more. Did I mention that these socks are tough? 8^)

    Over the last 6 weeks I have worn a pair of Derbyshire walking socks on a number of long walks.I have found
    them to be very comfortable,remain quite odour free, and after eventual washing, hold their length and shape.

    The very best sock I have ever worn in over forty years of outdoor activities—I have finally found the ideal socks for warm, comfortable, blister-free walking, cycling, sailing, microlight flying, and myriad other adventures. When the soft cushion effect of the loop pile stitch eventually fades after many hundreds of miles walking the socks remain warm and cozy for other activities. I am so pleased that Capricorn responded to our request to make purple socks—they are still our favourites, we have around 20 pairs in that colour and a few pairs in other colours, too.

    Bought a pair of Derbyshire socks to see what the fuss was about. They’ve exceeded my expectations: like walking on air; worn for a week and still smelling fresh; feet feel just the right temperature. I’m sad to take them off at the end of the day. All my other socks became tight, hot and heavy overnight—planning on replacing the lot with Capricorn socks. Worth every penny.

    I love these socks !!! So comfortable and yet robust, I have now got 8 pairs in different colours and in the winter in Debyshire they are on my feet all day and night !! Thank You Capricorn

    I wanted a warm, robust pair of comfortable socks both for my regular 9 mile weekly walk but also to wear with gardening boots & wellies. I could not have chosen better. When walking in rain or windy weather I can feel the warmth in my boots as I trudge along. My walking pal is gradually being convinced to buy a pair. Similar comfort while working in the garden whether weeding, moving bark, leaves, mowing & so on. I have started to wear them while cycling around where I live. My wife says next thing is I will be wearing them in bed in winter….we’ll soon see if she is joking!

    I’m looking forward to trying my pair now!

    I was bought a pair of the Derbyshire socks for Christmas and have worn them in the house and, on very cold nights, in bed. I’ve always had cold feet even in thick ski socks, but no more! Capricorn socks are the most comfortable cosiest socks I’ve ever worn and I will be ordering more, just in case I have to wear them in my walking boots. Thank you Capricorn for the most marvellous socks ever made.

    I’ve known about Capricorn socks for some time now, being a past customer of GPS Training. Their free delivery offer helped me to finally decide to give them a try and I bought two pairs. I’m very happy with my purchase. They feel slightly thicker than my usual socks but that hasn’t caused me any problems. I was originally worried by a slightly raised stitching above the toes, but again this didn’t cause any problems. All in all, very happy, I’ve bought another two pairs

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.
