Commonly used materials for socks: cotton, spandex, polyester, nylon.
1. Combed cotton and carded cotton
All are pure cotton.Combed cotton has less short fibers and impurities, the fibers are straight and parallel, the yarn is uniform, and the surface is smoother. Carded cotton is rough, has a texture, and is not uniform.
Polyester has high strength and abrasion resistance, wrinkle resistance exceeds all fibers, and the fabric has good shape retention. Due to the lack of hydrophilic groups in the composition of polyester, the fiber has very little moisture absorption. Polyester has strong light resistance, second only to polyacrylonitrile fiber. Its heat resistance is also very good, and it is not moldy or decayed.
It is a synthetic fiber. It has the characteristics of high elongation and high elasticity, and has better acid resistance, alkali resistance, light resistance and abrasion resistance.
It is a synthetic fiber. The abrasion resistance is particularly excellent, ranking first among common textile fibers, but it does not absorb sweat and smelly feet. If it is only used for jacquard, it will basically not affect the performance of the socks itself.
