Organic Cotton Row Gauge Socks
This variant is currently sold out
These organic cotton socks are knitted on a vintage Bentley machine, in England. The socks are knitted slowly using a lot of yarn and have a gentle hand-knit feel. The material used is white or brown organic cotton.
The white organic cotton is a blend of cotton from various sources such as the United States, India, Turkey, Africa, and Peru etc. The reason why Yahae does not limit the production area is that the quality of the pesticide-free cotton produced in a given year inevitably varies depending on the weather and climate. The brown is a natural brown gained from 100% brown cotton, which is a sustainable colored cotton produced on Dr. Sally Fox’s farm. She invented a colored cotton seed that can be spun into thread.
Yahae uses yarns that are spun by a well-established spinning company in Japan that knows and understands the quality of cotton. Different types of cottons offer different comfort. The white one is chunky and smooth to the touch, while the brown one is firm and comfortable.
Yahae is a small sock factory that has been based in the town of Koryo, Nara Japan since 1921. The name of “yahae” comes from their ancestors.
The town of Koryo is located in the Yamato-Basin, surrounded by rolling mountains on all sides. This area has been known for its quality textile, including Yamato-momen since around 17th centry. With such a background, the local people in the region still call ‘sock knitting’ as ‘sock weaving.’ Yahae makes socks inspired by nature and history; a pair of socks knitted with materials pleasant for our feet and comfortable for our hearts. They believe that the socks you choose in the morning set the tone in giving you a comfortable life.
92% Organic Cotton, 7% Nylon, 1% Polyurethane
Yahae does not use any chemical dyeing in their process of making the socks. This is partly due to the fact that they aim to make their socks sustainable by eliminating the dyeing process, which is said to have a large environmental impact. They use materials which are rich in colour due their nature as for example brown cotton.
