What materials are Fit Elite socks made from?
Unless otherwise stated, our socks are made using long staple Egyptian cotton that is spun and dyed in Italy.
What is Long Staple Cotton?
Long staple cotton refers to a premium grade of cotton that is made using raw cotton lint with longer fibers (staples).
The length of the fibers is one of the main factors that determine the quality of the final cotton yarn produced. Regular cotton fibers usually measure around 26-27mm, whereas long staple cotton can have staple length that is as long as 36mm.
While this difference may not always be visible to the naked eye, the fabric made with longer staple cotton generally has a distinctively softer feel and tends to peel less over time, resulting in a final product that is more durable and longer lasting.
Why use Egyptian cotton?
Egyptian cotton has for a long time been known to be one of the highest quality cottons in the world. Being a long staple cotton, and due to its unique properties, Egyptian cotton has a number of properties that make it a preferrable type of cotton:
- Fabric made using Egyptian cotton is soft and lustrous
- Great absorbtion and moisture management properties
- Longer fibers create fabric that is more durable and less prone to peeling over time
What is the size of Fit Elite socks?
Unless otherwise stated, our socks are "One size fits most", which means that they have been engineered to fit people with a shoe size of 39-45 (EU), 7-12 (UK), or 8-13 (US/CAD). Our socks are made with a unique blend of materials containing a small amount of polyamide that allows the socks to take the form of the foot for optimal fit when you first put them on.
What length are Fit Elite socks?
Our socks are considered to be "Mid Calf", which means that the lenght of the socks allows them to cover half of your calves. This is considered to be the standard length of a dress sock.
What is the exact composition of Fit Elite socks?
Most of our socks are made with the following composition: 85% Cotton, 13% Polyamide, 2% Elastane. This combination of materials provides the most optimal balance between comfort and fit.
