Made at the Pantherella factory in Leicester, in the heart of England, Scott-Nichol socks are all hand-finished to the highest standards demanded by the World’s finest sockmakers. Scott-Nichol use a ‘leisure knit’ that is a higher gauge than usually used by Pantherella, and this creates a versatile, leisure sock for the discerning gentleman and lady.
Scott-Nichol Wool socks are knitted from a blend of warm virgin wool taken from a sheep’s first shearing, with a touch of nylon for added fit and longevity.
WOOL IS WATER RESISTANT – Wool fibres are actually hollow with a durable, flexible and water- resistant exterior.
WOOL BREATHES MOISTURE – Aside from resisting most external moisture, wool fibres allow water vapour to pass through [perspiration] so carrying it away from the body for it to evaporate more quickly, thus keeping you more comfortable.
WOOL IS A WONDERFUL INSULATOR – Wool fibres are not perfectly smooth or straight. Instead, they’re curly, which helps produce tiny insulating air spaces that retain more heat.
WOOL IS NATURALLY ODOUR-RESISTANT – Synthetic fibres, like acrylic, begin to retain odours over time. Wool is much more resistant to retaining odours. Sheep’s wool is also naturally resistant to wrinkling and static.
