Knowledge summary of current socks materials (Chapter 2)

Today I mainly share the advantages and disadvantages of 5 kinds of materials for making socks and give some reference to friends who want to customize socks.

1. Lycra:
It refers to a kind of elastic fiber used in socks, and it must be produced by DuPont. After strict certification, the Lycra label can be used. The label will indicate how much content it contains. Lycra in stockings means a comfortable fit like a second skin, a smooth and even appearance, and a light and supple fit. The high content of Lycra shows that the elasticity and resilience, color, and breathability of stockings will have better performance.
Lycra 3D is the latest achievement in the revolution of stockings technology, which weaves Lycra fiber in every way and weaves into loops. All hosiery products must meet strict technical and quality standards before they can be allowed to hang the Lycra 3D logo. Lycra 3D stockings fit snugly from the waist to the toes. It feels like a second layer of skin. Its uniform and neat texture structure give the legs a smooth and even aesthetic.

2. Wood fiber:
Wood fiber products have the characteristics of antibacterial, bacteriostatic, eliminating foot odor and odor, preventing beriberi, no static electricity, strong breathability, comfort, and long service life. Wood fiber is natural and superior to nature. The special structure and production process of wood fiber make it exceed the high-quality fibers such as cotton and hemp, and it has the most moisturizing, breathable, and antistatic properties that are most in line with human physiological science. Wood fiber socks are breathable and sweat-absorbent when the weather is hot; they are moisturizing and soft when the weather is cold; with the essence of cotton and the quality of silk, and unique bacteriostatic and deodorizing functions, bringing you fashion enjoyment.

3. Silver fiber:
a. The silver ions released by the silver fiber can not only effectively kill bacteria, but also combine with ammonia and denatured proteins to eliminate odor.
b. Increase blood flow, promote blood circulation, and reduce puffiness.
c. Silver fiber can regulate body temperature through heat transfer mechanisms such as reflected infrared radiation and heat conduction.
d. The good thermal conductivity of silver fiber can quickly distribute the sweat from the feet to the outside environment to keep the feet comfortable and dry.
e. The excellent conductivity of silver fiber can effectively eliminate the discomfort caused by static electricity.

4. Bamboo charcoal:
Bamboo charcoal has the reputation of "black diamond" and is known as "the new guardian of environmental protection in the 21st century" internationally. It uses bamboo as raw material, adopts pure oxygen high temperature and nitrogen barrier delay calcination new technology, which makes the micropores inherent in bamboo charcoal finer and honeycomb, and then merge with melt-spinning with polyester modified chips which with the trend of honeycomb microporous structure. The biggest difference of this fiber is that each bamboo charcoal fiber has a honeycomb microporous structure that penetrates inside and outside. This unique fiber structure design can make 100% of the functions of bamboo charcoal. The birth of bamboo charcoal fiber with multifunctional functions is a revolutionary innovation of multifunctional textile materials.

5. Modal:
Modal is a high moisture modulus cellulose regenerated fiber developed by Lenzing of Austria. The raw material of this fiber is European beech wood, which is first made into wood pulp and then processed into fibers through a special spinning process. There is no pollution in the entire production process of fibers. Its dry strength is close to that of polyester, and its wet strength is much higher than that of ordinary viscose. Its gloss, softness, hygroscopicity, dyeability, and dyeing fastness are better than pure cotton products; the fabrics made with it show that a silky gloss with pleasant soft touch and drape and excellent durability. Because this product is all-natural materials, it is 100% natural fiber, which is harmless to the human body, and can be naturally decomposed, and is not harmful to the environment.

The above is the content about the 5 kinds of sock-making materials that I talked about today. If you have any different opinions, please share them.
