The HUMPHREY LAW Grass Seed Sock is a unique cotton blend sock with a slippery cotton yarn on the outside that allows grass seeds or sawdust to slip off.
Absorbent and hardwearing - excellent in boots and gum boots. Made from hard wearing, unshrinkable, absorbent mercerised cotton which helps to discharge static electricity. Extra reinforcing in heel and toe with a true rib top for sideways stretch.
In 1844 the English calico printer, John Mercer, observed that cotton went through some fundamental changes when treated with concentrated caustic soda. The cotton fibres become straighter, stronger and take on a sheen or lustre.
That treatment, now called "mercerising", improves the strength, abrasion resistance and moisture absorbency of cotton, and allows us to dye it brighter colours. Socks made from mercerised cotton absorb sweat and wear much better than socks made from cheap untreated cotton.
