    I have been wearing these socks for many years, really do like them. So comfortable and they stay up!

    I have bought Capricorn socks for more years than I recall and particularly like the Sussex loose top. They are very comfortable, they stay up, are not too thick to wear with ordinary footwear, are warm in winter and not too warm in summer – although I do refer here to Scottish summers. I am so pleased with them that I haven’t bought any other make of socks for years.

    Great socks with super colours. Have had the Sussex socks in eleven different shades for years and wear them all year round. Everyone should have a pair.

    I bought these socks for days when I was slobbing around the house and to keep me cosy in bed. They stay up well despite being loose top and I have been wearing them as a boot sock as I like them so much. I don’t buy anything apart from mohair socks now as they are just so comfortable. I am diabetic and cannot stand seams that rub on my feet and toes. They are just as good as other more expensive UK brands and bigger more accurate sizes to the ones I have bought from abroad. I love the colours as there is a good mix of more sober colours but also some brighter ones on days you just need a pick me up. I will certainly buy them again.

    I Have been buying Capricorn socks for my Husband for the past few years. When he was working he loved to wear the Surrey ankle length executive socks, saying that they were the most comfortable socks that he had. Since he finished work he continues to wear his Capricorn socks and our latest buy were for him to wear in his walking boots.
    I love all the bright colours he is more conservative in his colour choice.

    I first discovered these whilst on holiday at Jobsons of Alnwick and bought my first pair. After lots of looking out in country shops and online I remembered where I bought them sent a picture and asked for help identifying them. Bravo they did but only had some dark colours at the moment so bought direct from you. I can honestly say they are fabulous. I can not recommend highly enough on wearability washability comfort and style not to mention amazing colours.

    We have both been looking for loose tops socks as we were really fed up with others being too tight and causing great discomfort. I bought a couple of pairs of the Sussex socks after seeing an advert in ‘The Northumbrian’. These socks are great – really comfortable, warm, wash well, good range of colours, definitely have loose tops and don’t fall down! Have just received a second order and will probably be buying more. Great socks, thank-you!

    Very happy so far – I have been showing them off to my family. I bought them because I usually manage to destroy socks within a couple of months, wear straight through the heel – so I got these as a bit of an experiment to see if they’d survive long term. Like the fact that they hold up well without elastic at the top. Found you in the first place because someone was saying on twitter that your socks are the best!

    Lovely quality for a very reasonable price. I bought some Capricorn socks in a gift shop in Northumberland on a long-distance walk several years ago. They have worn so well I was keen to find them online.

    Delighted that Pink socks are now back in stock. The other bonus is that they don’t drop bits all over the carpets! My older socks have always shred their ‘wool’

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.
