What should I pay attention to when buying children's socks?
During this period, children have a lot of activity and sweat a lot in their feet. Therefore, it is best to choose cotton socks with strong air permeability and better warmth for children's socks. The tightness of the socks should be appropriate, too loose will fade to the soles of the feet uncomfortable, too tight will easily affect the blood circulation of the child's legs.
The ordinary socks we wear in our lives are made of cotton yarn, covered yarn (nylon, spandex synthetic) nylon and other raw materials. The elasticity of cotton yarn is poor. If a pair of socks is made of 100% cotton yarn, it will have no elasticity at all, it will not shrink after washing, and it is not strong and not durable! In order to make socks more elastic, more durable and stronger, a certain amount of elastic fibers, such as spandex and lycra, are added during the production process, especially at the ribs, heels, and toes. The proportion of these elastic fibers depends on the socks. The demand for elasticity is generally 15%-40% (some functional socks and sports socks will be higher), so we usually call socks with a cotton content of 60%-85% as pure cotton (cotton) socks NS. In particular, it needs to be pointed out that the price of commonly used elastic fibers is mostly higher than that of cotton. The quality of socks cannot be judged based on the level of cotton content.
Children with delicate skin, pay attention to the following points when choosing socks:
1. The pure cotton fabric has been inspected and practiced in many ways, and the fabric has no irritation or negative effect in contact with the skin. It is beneficial and harmless to the human body when worn for a long time, and has good hygienic properties;
2. Antibacterial textiles, especially antibacterial socks, can greatly reduce the number of bacteria on the socks, reduce bacterial infections, and are more conducive to the healthy growth of children.
3. Too thick socks are not well breathable, and children's socks must be well breathable, not stuffy and sweaty, and don't cover your feet. Pay attention to this problem even in winter. If you are worried about warmth, you can choose children's socks with better warmth materials, such as wool socks.
4. Choose socks for children. The first choice is not easy to slip off. Try to choose socks of the right size. Don't choose socks that are one size bigger just because children grow fast, and don't choose too tight socks. Staying on the ankle or calf affects blood circulation.
