If the composition of a pair of sock is 100% cotton, then this pair of socks is completely no flexibility. 100% cotton socks shrinkage is particularly high, not strong, not durable. Usually, more than 75% cotton of the socks can be called "cotton socks" and cotton content of 85% of the socks is a high-grade cotton socks.
In addition, the need to add some functional fibers to maintain the elasticity of socks, fastness and comfort. Polyester, spandex, nylon are often used in functional fibers.
1. Polyester： Polyester has a high elastic recovery, and therefore its color fastness and durability is good, anti-wrinkle, no distortion, good light fastness.
2. Spandex: Spandex is commonly known as elastic fiber, with high elasticity and flexibility, the stretch length can reach 5-7 times the original fiber, joined the spandex textile products can always maintain the original outline, easy to wear, but also make Socks can be more affixed to the feet, not easy to slip off.
3. Nylon： strong wear-resistant, synthetic fiber is the most wear-resistant, the most solid one. Weight is very light, good elasticity, in the socks to join the nylon can maintain high strength elasticity.
4. Bamboo fiber: Bamboo fiber fabric has a soft, smooth feel characteristics, and wear-resistant, can not ball, moisture, quick-drying, breathable. It has very good antibacterial function and health care function.
