Standard, the Australian sock company, has launched a sustainable technical sock for skiing and snowboarding. These socks use a yarn that is produced in Spain by Hilaturas Ferre, specialized in the production of colored yarns and threads from recycled cotton fibers. The socks are made in Portugal. The ”Woods” sock is made using Recover R3, a soft tri-blend of upcycled cotton, RPET bottles and Tencel. The “Flock” sock is made using Recover Wool, a new yarn that is an upcycled blend of post-industrial wool cutting scraps, nylon and recycled PET bottles.
