Improves abrasion resistance of the sock fabric (higher durability); Tests have demonstrated that cotton/pp socks have a wear resistance on average 4 times higher than 100% cotton socks.
Allows the production of socks perfectly balanced under the thermal point of view; The combination of the cool cotton and the low thermal conductivity of polypropylene allows for a balanced yarn which performs well in all temperature ranges.
Provides a very soft and natural handle and, thanks to its lowest specific gravity, enables to knit very light and voluminous fabric structures, which guarantee an exceptional level of comfort.
Allows to produce socks easy to maintain (machine washable) making the drying much quicker. Improves dimensional stability and colour fastenss.
