Cotton is a traditional natural fiber, and it is also a highly comfortable textile material. It is still used in large quantities today. However, for the requirements of sports, especially outdoor sports, the performance of cotton itself has great limitations. The moisture absorption of cotton fiber is very good, and the moisture absorption rate is very fast, but it is not enough to get rid of moisture. After the cotton fiber is wet, it will be very slow. Therefore, if you do not have a good supply of logistics, try not to wear pure cotton socks in outdoor activities, especially for multi-day activities in the rainy summer, socks after soaking, it will be very dangerous.
Wool is also a kind of traditional natural fiber. It is famous for its good warmth. However, ordinary wool is not very suitable for socks. It must be made of high-quality wool, such as Australia's MEERINOWOOL. , NEWWOOL (new hair), etc., are good materials for underwear and socks. However, many people will find that the direct use of wool for personal clothing is rare, if any, and the price is relatively high, which is mainly determined by the structural characteristics of the wool itself. Under the microscope, you can see that there are many scales of wool fibers, arranged somewhat like bamboo shoots, and each scale has a keratinized tip at the top. This keratinized tip can easily cause adhesion between wool fibers. Sticking, at the same time, the horny tip makes the wool feel itchy when it is close, so if you use wool material to make intimate clothing like socks, you must remove the keratinized tip, this treatment The relatively high cost is one of the main reasons why the product is expensive. The wool itself is characterized by keeping warm, while its hygroscopicity and dehumidification are poor. After being blended or mixed with other fibers, it can be made into good winter warm socks.
Leica, spandex and elastics are all elastic materials. Leica is a registered trademark of the United States DuPont, in fact, is a type of spandex, so it is also known as Leica ammonia, but it is much better than ordinary spandex processing, its extension and recovery are very good, and not easy to aging, now Many outdoor brand socks use Leica for elastic materials. The rubber band is actually a rubber band. Of course, the socks used to make the socks are much thinner, and they are as thin as the yarn. They are woven into the socks during the manufacturing process. Elastic tends to age easily. After being corroded by sweat or through the winter cold, It is easy to lose the original extension and reversibility. For the more expensive socks for outdoor sporting professional sports socks, this feature makes it less economical. However, there is an elastic in Japan, and it is said that the durability is good, and it is still in the promotion stage.
