Our Sea Island Cotton is grown and processed in the British West Indies and then spun into the highest quality yarn by Spoerry in Switzerland.
Our yarn is dyed to a colour palette unique to Pantherella, by the Atkinson Dyeing Company in West Yorkshire.
The fibres of Genuine Sea Island Cotton are very long, which means that they can be spun into a very fine yarn. These long fibres are also resistant to ‘pilling’ and therefore make very durable, hard wearing socks.
Our Genuine Sea Island Cotton socks have a very cool, soft and smooth feel. They retain colour well and get softer with each wash.
The Genuine Sea Island Cotton Pantherella uses has a cotton count of 2/40 NE – this number translates as the thickness and weight of the yarn (2 ply x 40 yards per lb).
Pantherella Genuine Sea Island Cotton Socks are knitted on a 200 needle, fine-gauge machine
Ideal for wearing in warmer weather as part of your summer wardrobe
