Pringle of Scotland is a brand which is much loved and admired across the world. The company was founded by Robert Pringle in 1815 and specialised in hosiery and under garments. Pringle was one of the first companies to knit garments in cashmere wool and is thought to have invented the intarsia design which has become the signature Argyle pattern of Pringle. This pattern was adopted by the Duke of Windsor and became a favourite of the fashionable set. It is now an iconic look which remains stylish and popular.
Pringle?s success story began with socks and the current range still includes exceptional hosiery. We are pleased to feature Pringle socks in the Jean Store collection and we have chosen both plain and patterned styles for inclusion. Naturally we offer socks with the intarsia Argyle pattern. Pringle accessories are essential additions to your sock drawer!
Pringle socks are made from bamboo. These fibres are the perfect choice for socks as bamboo is fabulously soft, insulating and breathable. The fabric also wicks moisture away from your feet leaving them fresh and dry. Bamboo fabrics are naturally anti-static and so will not cling to your skin or other clothing. They are ideal for sensitive skin and possess both anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. If bacteria cannot prosper then odours do not develop which is an important benefit when it comes to socks!
Bamboo is certainly a comfortable and practical choice but it is also an earth-friendly one. Bamboo is a fast growing crop which does not require the use of chemical fertilisers and pesticides and which does not need watering as rainfall provides sufficient moisture for it to grow. It can be cultivated in areas where other crops are not viable and it is good for soil stability. Bamboo delivers a high yield and requires only 10% of the land to produce an equivalent volume of cotton. All in all, bamboo is the way forward!
Pringle bamboo socks are soft, comfortable, stylish and great for planet Earth. What more could you ask for from your socks? Pringle Accessories are the perfect choice and we are sure that you will appreciate their many qualities.
