    Keep your Feet at the Perfect Temperature


    Good old, proper black socks. Perfect for school and beyond.

    Merino is an excellent fibre for active lifestyles, making them perfect socks for our children and their friends. These are incredibly soft on their feet, so no more complaining about itchy, scratchy toes. The magical properties of merino wool mean that they will regulate their foot temperature as well, keeping them cosy in the winter and cool in the summer. So they get on with their play while we get on with adulting. Plus they come in a host of gorgeous colours to suit everyone’s taste, not that we have fussy children of course….

    And just like our other natural fibre socks you will not need to wash these everyday and can be worn for two to three days on the trot.

    Style: Lightweight, calf length, smooth design with a shallow top rib.

    Size: UK Children's 12-3

    Why are natural fiber socks more expensive than synthetic options?

    Natural fibres such as mohair, alpaca, merino, cashmere and wool are often more expensive to produce than synthetic materials. However, natural fibre socks tend to last longer and provide better comfort and breathability, making them worth the investment.

    I have permanently cold feet. Will these help me?

    We use natural fibres as the hero yarn in our socks. The properties of which are very clever in regulating the temperature of our feet.

    Are natural fibre socks as durable as synthetic options?

    While natural fibres may require more delicate care than synthetics, they are often more durable in the long run. Proper care and maintenance can help extend the life of your PAIRS socks.

    I hate having hot, clammy feet. Are these for me?

    So do we! We want everyone to have comfortable feet and to experience how unexpectedly joyful it is to wear proper socks. All our socks are carefully designed and blended with natural fibres to allow your feet to breathe and regulate their temperature whatever the weather and activity.

    Do my PAIRS socks require special care?

    Depending on which fibre you have chosen, natural fibre socks may require special care such as hand washing. However, many of our socks can be machine washed and hung to dry.

    These merino socks can go into a normal 40 degree wash (although we tend to use a 30 degree setting these days, as its just as efficent) and then hung to dry. Please do not tumble dry any of our socks!

    My socks never last, they always get holey. Are . these socks durable?

    Our socks are created with a unique blend of natural fibres and some nylon to create a product that is robust yet very comfortable to wear.

    What if I'm allergic to natural fibres?

    Our socks are incridbly gentle but if you have an allergy to a specific natural fibre, such as wool, look for socks made from alternative fibre like our bamboo range.

    You’re out of stock in the socks that I want. Why?

    We work with small mills in the UK, Portugal and Turkey to create our collections which are designed here in Scotland. We even source the fibres from their native countries. Sometimes we run of stock and the stars don’t align quick enough to get them back online for you. We will always try to keep you informed as much as we can, please use . the notify me button above.

    Will natural fibre socks make my feet smell?

    PAIRS socks are breathable and moisture-wicking, which can help prevent odor. However, proper care such as washing and airing out can also help keep your socks fresh.

    Why do you only have a small range of colours & styles?

    We are a small independent company and every year we launch new styles and colours. We are continuing to design new styles and in the meantime we hope that within the bijou collections we have created  you will find something you like. Because once you try our socks it’s going to be very difficult to go back to ‘normal’ socks again! Please get in touch if you have any ideas for new collections or colours. We love to hear from our customers.

    Are PAIRS socks comfortable?

    These mohair socks tend to be softer and more comfortable than synthetic options, as they are a ribbed loosed top style and are naturally breathable and moisture-wicking, while keeping your feet warm in winter and cool in summer.

    Are these socks suitable for active wear?

    Yes! Our merino socks are great for active wear, as they are robust, breathable and moisture-wicking.
