Extremely hard wearing socks with one silly little fault!
Having had some of these for some three years or more i find that the hemp side of the sock is brilliant, but the elastic that holds the sock up tends to give out after about eighteen months to two years, pity I'll have to get some more to replace the older ones! Or find some way of replacing the elastic!
Would I buy some more - to right I will, but not until they restock and get a few more colours.
Just a thought but wouldn't it be nice to be able to buy say half a dozen in random colours?!!
I got a couple of pairs of these for Christmas and they seem fine. Have washed them 3 or 4 times and they've kept their size and shape fine. Just got in from a 5 mile walk - they still feel fresh and don't smell at all Quite comfortable, too.
I purchcased 7 pairs about a year ago and I wear them every day. I also exercise almost every day and not a single sock has torn so far under that strain. I'm very happy with the quality and when/if these become worn out I'll definitely purchase more just because they hold up so well during physical additivity.
I ordered these socks and then collected them from a friend's house when I went to the UK in May. Given we've had a long, hot summer in Portugal, I've only started wearing them in the evenings in the last month or so, so I'm a bit disappointed to see that one sock already has a hole in the heel seam. They really haven't been worn much at all and, while I can repair the hole, I don't really expect to have to make repairs for something that has had so little use.
