How to Improve The Efficiency of Sourcing Socks for Winter

Socks are the most common items in our life, and we wear them almost every day. So many people are confused, what socks are the most warm in winter?How thick socks are suitable for winter? Come and answer for you one by one! Help you improve the efficiency of souring socks selection.

What socks should we source for winter?

When wearing socks in winter, the socks should be kept dry first, because when socks are damp, a lot of water will squeeze out the air in the sock fibers, and the air is an excellent heat insulation body, which is more than 20 times higher than the warmth of water. Therefore, once socks are damp, they will not keep warm.
Therefore, people who love sweating feet should wear cotton socks or wool socks that are both breathable and hygroscopic, and should not wear nylon socks with poor hygroscopicity and permeability. For people with dry skin on their feet, especially the elderly, they need to wear socks with poor moisture absorption. In comparison, wool socks have the best moisture absorption, followed by cotton socks. Nylon socks have worse moisture absorption than cotton socks, while polypropylene socks have almost no moisture absorption.
When selecting socks, you should pay attention to distinguish, because the hand feel of man-made fiber will be slippery, while the cotton is relatively rough; Open the socks and observe the surface. There are no brown dots or few dots. It is combed cotton.
Generally, acrylic fiber will be added to cotton socks to increase the elasticity of socks. Socks with more cotton and less acrylic fiber will feel soft, have good moisture absorption and be more comfortable to wear.

What socks keep you warm in winter?

We all know that wool is the most suitable for cold resistance. Woolen sweaters and quilts are indispensable household warm keeping items in winter. Are socks also the best wool? The answer is no, although wool is good at keeping warm, its sweat absorption effect is poor, which is not only easy to breed bacteria, but also may cause blisters.
What your feet like most is a dry and warm environment. Therefore, the pure cotton that can keep warm and absorb sweat is always the best choice for socks. In particular, combed cotton with longer fiber and less impurities has better warmth retention than ordinary cotton.

How thick socks are suitable for winter?

“It is better to freeze your head and cover your feet than to take medicine.” These proverbs are very reasonable. As the temperature gradually drops, some loose and warm cotton socks need to be ready. Many people think that the thicker the socks are, the better the effect of keeping warm.
However, if the socks are thick but do not absorb sweat, they are easy to get wet. A large amount of water will squeeze out the air in the sock fibers. Because of the lack of air, which is an excellent heat insulation body, when the socks are wet, they will make the soles of the feet cool, reflexively causing the decline of respiratory resistance and catching a cold.
In winter, the indoor temperature is high. If the shoes and socks are too thick and tight, they will sweat easily. If the foot sweat does not disperse in time, it will be absorbed by shoes and socks, which will not only breed bacteria, but also cause beriberi. In the cold outdoor, the feet will feel colder when the moisture inside the shoes is cold.
In addition, if the shoes and socks are wrapped too tightly, the blood circulation of the feet will be affected, which is also the reason why the body does not feel warm.
It is often seen on the market that velvet socks have words such as “80D” and “110D” on the package. Experienced people say that the higher the D number, the thicker the socks. Indeed, D refers to Denier, which is the fiber size unit. The higher the number of D is, the higher the relative weight of the fiber is, and the thickness will naturally increase. Generally speaking, socks above 60D are autumn and winter socks.

Pay attention to several guidelines when sourcing socks

Socks should fit well

The tightness of the sock mouth and sock tube shall be appropriate, the sock bottom shall be loose, the heel of the sock shall be large, the sock surface shall be smooth, the rib shall be flush and free from deflection, the stitch pattern shall be clear, and the pattern, sock head and sock heel shall be free from exposed needles. When wearing, if your feet feel tight, itchy, and obviously scratched, it indicates that the socks are not suitable.

Pay attention to fiber density

It is better not to buy too loose, because the extra fiber will increase friction and damage the foot skin. A pair of socks that cost a few yuan on the street are not bad, but in terms of fiber density, it is inevitable that they do not meet the standard.

Don’t be too colorful

The color of socks should be consistent with the shoe lining as far as possible to avoid mutual dyeing with shoes. The socks should give priority to light colored ones. The brighter the color, the more chemical ingredients will be added.

To replace after wear

Socks will become thinner or even broken after wearing for a long time, which will lead to heel injury or blistering. Even if the socks are not worn out, they will lose elasticity after being worn for a long time. They will increase friction with your feet. Your feet will feel slippery when sweating, which is easy to cause injuries.
