“Cotton Rich”


“Cotton Rich”

It is, apparently, impossible to buy socks anymore without them having a large proportion of nylon, polyester or latex.   They mainly go under the description “cotton rich”, which, apparently means 15% (or more??) not-cotton.  I don’t at all object to 5% elastane, but where are these socks to be found?

    Wow!
    No Nylon eh? I might even try them.

    I have tracked down some 95/5 cotton/elastane socks in the burbs. Now the problem is finding a cotton track suit…

    “cotton rich” can mean well less than half is cotton (in Australia and New Zealand). Yes cotton is one of the materials of garmet carrying this label, and is the largest proportion, but other fibres, generally synthetics such as rayon, nylon, viscose, polyester, terylene, spandex,… can be more if added together. So if several of these are in a garmet, then cotton content need only be say 35% to qualify for the cotton rich label.
