These cozy socks are made with a special kind of recycled cotton yarn that is then made even more special by using a dyeing technique called "speck dyeing" which involves sprinkling dye capsules and steaming the yarns, which causes the capsules to burst into random specks of color. Who knew so much could go into a pair of socks? The resulting socks are comfortable and can be worn in like your favorite pair of jeans, only getting better with time. Featuring a ribbed knit, and color contrast at the toe and heel. Founded in 1950, Nishiguchi Kutsushita started with a single, hand-operated knitting machine and has been making the highest quality socks ever since, all the while expanding their equipment to 130 machines today and focusing on quality, natural fibers.
