    Absolutely brilliant, here I am on the North West Coast on a particularly windy and wet day, being comforted by the embrace of my Capricorn socks !

    I was fed up with other well known brand wellie socks just not doing the job – from getting holes in the heels to falling down within my wellies when walking my dog. These Northumberland socks have been great – they stay up ( probably because of the materials used. The ribbing also helps). They’re light yet warm. I’m very happy.

    Finally found the socks I needed for wearing in wellies walking the dog. Also great in my walking boots- very comfortable and well made

    They were so good I never got to wear them, upon delivery and the Mrs opening the package, I have now lost them to her! Needless to say I’ve now ordered myself 2 pairs on the sly! Shhhh! 😉

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.
