    Been buying Capricorn socks for a number of years now. Prefer the loose top not to restrict circulation. Always pleased with my purchase.

    Have worn these socks or their southern cousins ‘countryside mohair’ day in day out for over ten years, not looking to go anywhere else for my socks anytime soon. My husband just might be joining the club 6 pairs purchased so far. Thank you

    Bought 2 pairs as a trial. I am thrilled with them! Fast deliver. So soft and warm. I bought them to replace acrylic socks that I wear with slippers. Want to be more eco friendly and support a UK business. These socks fit the bill. Keep feet warm, not sweaty, no smell. Washed on 30 in the machine. Came up a treat. Air dried. Perfect. Strongly recommend! And excellent value for money. Will buy more, for me and as gifts.

    Socks are warm and comfy bought different colours. Would recommend them . Last ones I bought lasted for a long time. Best things about these socks is they have no seams to rub your toes. Price is competitive with other walking socks. If in doubt try at least one pair, you will be converted .

    Absolutely the best socks I’ve ever had. Almost like they are not there but so comfy and soft. Not hot, not cool. Just perfect. I love them. The soft tops are great. And no sore seams !!

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!!


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’


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.


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


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.
