What’s the difference between combed cotton and regular cotton?
All Offbeat Socks are manufactured using combed cotton. Combed cotton is softer than regular cotton because it doesn't have any impurities or short protruding threads.
It is stronger than regular cotton because the combing process removes short fibres, which are prone to breakage. After combing, the straightened fibres join more tightly, leading to less fraying and unravelling.
These benefits plus the additional work required during the manufacturing process makes combed cotton far more luxurious than regular cotton.
It is for these reasons that The Offbeat Sock Company® choose to manufacture with the highest quality materials.
