MECHANICAL KNITTING

Tender’s socks are tubular knitted on antique mechanical machines, and hand linked, in England. Unwashed, unbleached, natural yarns are spun with a small amount of nylon, for long wear, and the socks are available dyed with historical pigments or ‘Unborn’ straight from the knitting machine. Unborn socks have a loose edge of water-soluble yarn, which will disappear with the first wash.They will arrive large, but shrink down to size in water.

Many of the socks have a soft, thick, terry looped foot.They are finished with the terry either on the inside, or reversed with an inverted rib and terry on the outside.
