    I have never actually worn the welly socks, but buy them for my brother, a professional gardener. This is a repeat request from him, so he obviously rates them as highly as I do. I bought them first on holiday in Morpeth and have been wearing the shorter ones ever since. They’re really good, warm comfy socks.

    Excellent socks for wearing with Wellingtons – and they don’t fall down, unlike socks from an upmarket outdoor wear manufacturer at twice the price!

    I bought a pair of your ‘Welly’ socks and liked them so much I’ve just bought another pair. They might just be the most comfortable socks I’ve ever worn

    Have bought these as a Christmas gift for son-in-law so can’t comment on comfort yet. Delivery was very good.

    Beautifully warm and don’t smell after lengthy walk but think they are a little on the large size, so next time I will go one size smaller. Would recommend 👍

    Worn half a dozen times so far, first impressions are very favourable. They are warm, stay put when worn with wellies & wash well with no noticeable shrinkage. Would buy again.

    These feel like good quality socks. They’re not exactly generous on size, but then, I’m a size 14, so 11-13 should probably be expected to be a little on the small size. They’re definitely not as wide around the leg as my previous pair of socks – I can get these around my thin walking trousers, but would struggle around jeans. That’s not a big issue, though. Will have to see how they last, as my previous pair of welly socks wore through in the heel (size 14 wellies never fit properly and always ride).

    I read reviews that said these were really good for wearing with Wellys – and I have to agree they are! I use my wellys for long walks, as it is so wet and muddy around here. The socks stayed up for the full length of my walk, so I am very pleased with them!

    They are excellent and just the right length.

    Had so many problems with other socks slowly coming off inside my wellies on a walk. Not any more. Lovely comfortable socks. Boots slip off easier too. Highly recommended.

    I love these socks. I live in Wellingtons and I’ve now got 6 pairs of your socks. They are the most comfortable socks I own.

    Think I ordered the wrong socks. A little big for my size 8 feet, and a little longer than I thought.
    If they last as long as my last walking socks I’ll see you next August perhaps! 🙂

    These are my eighth pair of Capricorn socks and they are truly excellent – warm and very comfortable. I must also compliment the company itself for its outstanding customer service. Highly recommended.

    Early days yet, but these have the potential to hit a 5 star rating for me. As someone who spends alot of time in wellies and boots in the outdoors, these have proved to be very comfortable, not too warm and not too cool, but they always feel comfy. Just in the process of ordering another pair!

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.
