The Fibres

There are three fibres that make up Teko’s range of socks. Each are sustainably sourced to produce a high quality, eco-friendly sock.

The M3RINO.XC fibre is made from merino wool grown and produced in Chile. The wool is then transported to Italy, to be cleaned, combed and washed in a Bluesign certified process to produce an eco-friendly, shrink free sock. This fibre is knitted into Ski, Hike and Cycle socks, with more cushioning and warmth for colder conditions. This fibre naturally contains lanolin which has antimicrobial properties along with being a water repellent. This means you can wear this fibre for a multi-day walking adventure and only need one or two pairs of socks!!

The SIN3RGI  fibre is made from merino wool grown and produced in Chile, then dyed and spun with recycled polyester before being knitted in Venice, Italy. This fibre is knitted into Ski, Run, Cycle and Hiking socks, producing a lightweight sock for medium temperatures. This is a durable fibre with natural anti-microbial properties.

The EVAPOR8 fibre is made from collecting all the waste polyamide around the world, mainly in the form of fishing nets. This can then be made into ECONYL regenerated yarns, in Ljubljana, Slovenia. This fibre is knitted into Run and Cycle socks, to produce a sock with more breathability for warmer climates.
