Hertfordshire Organic Hemp Terry Socks
Our Hertfordshire Organic Hemp Terry Socks are the world's first and only organic European hemp terry socks. It has long been our passion to make natural, fair-trade, eco-friendly socks, and hemp terry socks check all three boxes. Natural fiber socks breathe far better than conventional materials, and hemp fiber is naturally fungicidal and anti-bacterial, resulting in a big improvement in comfort and health.
- The body of these popular organic hemp socks is made from organic hemp terry weave
- A few strands of elastic threads at cuff to hold sock up
- A strand of elastic thread at toe seam for wiggle room
- Naturally stretchy heritage weave
- How is the Hertfordshire different from the Dvorak Organic Hemp Socks? The Dvorak has just two strands of elastic threads - one at cuff and one at toe seam.
Made in-house at the Rawganique Atelier in Europe, the Hertfordshire Organic Hemp Terry Socks are specially looped to be plush, soft, cozy, and comfortable to wear all day the year round. They and the Dvorak Organic Hemp Socks are our thickest hemp socks.
Our Hertfordshire Organic Hemp Terry Socks are specially made for chemically sensitive customers, customers who are intent on minimizing chemicals in their lives, as well as hemp purists everywhere who celebrate the endless planet-friendly possibilities of the wondrously versatile 4000-year-old natural fiber that is cannabis sativa hemp.
Note: hemp is notoriously hard to homogenize in terry pile loops. Skipped loops here and there are normal and par for the course for these super-special hemp terry socks.
Made at Rawganique Atelier in Europe. Fair-trade. Chemical-free.
The specialized nature of these minimal elastic hemp socks make them ideal for everyday wear. We do not recommend these hemp terry socks for strenuous physical activity as the main part of the socks are 100% natural and hence not as durable and long-lasting as synthetic fibres such as elastane, nylon, or polyester. The backing of the organic hemp socks is derived from naturally made fiber from sustainable wood fiber (a special version of Lyocell). This constitutes less than 1% and is required as structure for our 100% organic terry loop.
What our customers love about our hemp socks is the hemp fiber's legendary ability to "breathe", wicking moisture away from the skin at a fast pace, keeping your feet dry and comfortable. Hemp is also naturally anti-fungal. Our hemp is organically grown and processed, and fair-trade, unlike the recently popular bamboo socks which are all but pure and chemical-free and mostly from sweatshop-countries. In wearing, "bamboo" socks (which are technically human-made synthetic rayon socks from bamboo fiber) give off little pieces of rayon plastics that go into our waterways and soils and enter animal and human foodchain.
Hand wash in warm or cold water, using a mild biodegradable detergent. Hang to dry. If you must, machine wash on delicate cycle in a mesh garment laundry bag. Do not machine dry.
