What are the best socks for walking in?jon.monks
Over recent years many people have changed the footwear they go walking and hiking in. Here at Capricorn Mohair Socks we have adapted our socks for this change.
With Mohair being a straight fibre there is no better sock to walk in, there is nothing to trap the moisture in so any moisture flows away from your skin alleviating the risk of blisters which are formed by friction and your foot being wet.
Also with Capricorn Mohair socks not smelling after use you can wear your walking socks day after day, even if you do want to just quickly rinse them through at the end of the day they will quickly dry so you can put them back on the following day.
Walking trainers/ trail shoes
Our Ayrshire socks are most suited to walking trainers and trail shoes.
They are thin, have a very high percentage mohair and they also have 1 ½ % lycra in to give them some extra stretch that this type of footwear requires.
A great thin walking sock for all seasons.
Ayrshire – Angle length thin walking sock – more
For walking boots, we have both long and angle length walking socks that are looped from top to toe.
Our ankle length walking socks are still that little bit longer as they are to be worn with a boot and our long walking socks are ideal for those wanting to wear when climbing or winter walking.
Super Quick dry time
Hi, I bought my first pair of Capricorn socks whilst glamping in Northumberland. The following year we went glamping in North Yorkshire near Osmotherly. There was a ford across the road down to the village . My husband went off to the side to take a photo of me and my grandson and we both waded across the ford. The water was up to our ankles and my husband asked what we were doing.
“Crossing the ford “ I replied. “Why? There’s a bridge here” he said. I am a real townie and genuinely thought you just had to wade across. Fortunately, I was wearing my Capricorn socks and they dried out in super quick time and didn’t feel uncomfortable at all. My grandson thought it was hilarious.
Ayrshire socks in action
As you know I have been buying your Ayrshire Mohair Socks ever since you took over the Capricorn Brand and have not worn anything else. I have been a type 2 diabetic for many years, good blood circulation in the feet is very important for diabetics. I find mohair socks stimulate my circulation and easily absorb any moisture that may occur. I would strongly recommend all diabetics to try them.
Best regards, Michael Binns.
