Why Do We Use Bamboo?

Why Do We Use Bamboo?

So you are probably wondering why we use viscose of bamboo rather than say cotton to make our multi-colored socks at Gorilla Socks? Well...there are numerous reasons why we only use this unique fiber but we wanted to highlight three of the key benefits of bamboo and what it means for you: 

Fact 1 - Thermoregulating

Nobody likes freezing cold feet in the winter or hot, sweaty feet in summer right?! Well, bamboo fiber is thermoregulating meaning our socks keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer so bear this in mind as you wrap up this holiday season.

Fact 2 - Luxuriously Soft

Bamboo fiber is renowned as being luxuriously soft, often compared to cashmere, yet stronger and more robust than cotton. This means our socks feel super soft on your feet whilst retaining their quality for longer.

Fact 3 - Needs Little Water to Grow

We all know water is a scarce resource and we need to conserve it. We chose to use bamboo as it requires less than 1/3 the amount of water required by cotton to grow and is the fastest growing plant in the world. Every little helps switch to bamboo socks rather than cotton and do your bit for water conservation.
