To keep your Kathmandu outdoor socks in their best, brightest and most comfortable condition, follow our sock care and wash instructions.
Specific care instructions for your Kathmandu socks can be found on their individual packaging.
Socks are best washed inside out to wash out odour-causing bacteria, and to reduce pilling and fluffing caused by the abrasive action of socks rubbing against each other and other clothes in the wash.
Socks should not be bleached. A bleaching agent may damage the wool fibre in the sock, and most Kathmandu socks have (high) wool content.
A warm tumble dry setting may be preferable as this will ensure socks do not shrink in the drying process. Alternatively, socks can be line-dried (without delay), preferably in the shade.
Some instructions may advise a gentle warm machine wash, however, the best way to wash a pair of socks is by hand, inside out, with a mild detergent and then line-dried in the shade.
