Japan’s Mauna Kea take the natural route for their sock collection. A tubular knit for comfort, as well as helping the sock retain its shape after a battering in the wash, the brand relies on a hemp cotton mix using larger yarn and few stitches. The resulting finish allows for a more flexible knit which moulds to the foot, this coupled with the natural properties of hemp and cotton – high moisture absorption and quick-drying, you’ve got something that not only looks good but treats those feet of yours real nice.
