Main Material of Sports Socks

After recognizing the importance of sports socks and the situation of choosing different sports socks for different sports events, before purchasing, understand the material composition of sports socks, different materials will solve different problems, we must choose the one that is ultimately suitable for you. In addition to cotton, spandex, lycra and other conventional textures, this paper introduces several special functional fabrics.

1.NYLON (nylon)

Some ingredients are also called nylon, in outdoor sports socks is specially designed to strengthen the firmness, easy to wash and dry, strong and durable, good flexibility nylon added why to extend the life of socks, not easy to damage.


In fact, in the late 1970s and early 1980s, the patented technology developed by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) research project was developed by NASA for the lunar landing program. The purpose was to make lunar landing clothing for astronauts, including gloves, socks, underwear and so on. Later, it was developed for ordinary clothing, especially outdoor clothing, including ski shirts, trousers, sweaters and so on.

The key to Outlast fiber technology is to use microcapsule-encapsulated thermosensitive phase change materials, which can absorb, store and release heat in the form of latent heat. In the process of temperature change, solid and liquid can be transformed into each other to achieve the effect of endothermic and exothermic. HyDROCARBONWAX, a microcapsule thermosensitive phase change material in Outlast fibers, can respond to the changes of environmental temperature on the skin and buffer the changes of temperature.

The effect of this kind of fabric applied to sports socks is to keep warm, reduce sweating, not easy to stretch and deform, and meet the wearer’s need for heat.
