Combed cotton socks
Combed cotton fibers are long and neat cotton fibers that are left after the shorter fibers removed by a machine called a comber. Due to the removal of short cotton fibers and other fiber impurities, the cotton yarn spun from combed cotton is more delicate, and the finished product also feels smoother and more comfortable. Combed cotton is more tough and not easy to pilling.
Spandex is commonly known as elastic fiber, which has high elasticity and strong stretchability. Its stretched length can reach 5-7 times of the original fiber. Textile products with spandex can maintain the original contour. Spandex can make the socks have elasticity and shrinkage, making it easier to wear, and also make the socks more fit to the feet.
