Pringle of Scotland is one of the world's best known and most loved knitwear brands. The company was founded by Robert Pringle in 1815 and initially produced only hosiery and under garments. It was one of the first companies to knit cashmere garments and is credited with having created the intarsia design which is now the signature Argyle pattern of Pringle. This pattern was adopted early by the Duke of Windsor and the fashionable set of the time. It has since become an iconic look and has remained popular to this day.
The Pringle story began with socks and today the company's range still features fine socks that we are delighted to stock at Jean Store. We have both plain and patterned styles for men including socks featuring the iconic intarsia Argyle design.
You will notice that Pringle socks are fashioned from bamboo and you might be wondering why when cotton and wool are the traditional choices for socks. Bamboo is actually the perfect fabric for socks! It produces wonderfully soft and comfortable fibres which are insulating yet breathable and moisture wicking. Bamboo textiles are anti-static and so do not cling to skin or other clothing and are good for sensitive skin. Bamboo also possesses anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. As bacteria cannot prosper, bamboo clothing does not develop odours. This benefit is obviously most useful when it comes to socks!
So bamboo is great to wear but its advantages don't stop there. Bamboo is also an earth friendly choice. Bamboo is a fast growing crop which prospers without the need for fertilisers and pesticides and which requires no water other than rain. It grows in places where other crops are not viable and it is good for soil stability. Bamboo crops have a high yield and require the use of only 10% of the land needed to produce the same amount of cotton.
Pringle bamboo socks are a great choice. They are kind to your feet and to the planet. They are stylish too and suitable for all occasions. What more could you ask for from affordable socks?
