How it's made

Anonymous Ism socks are crafted in Tokyo, Japan using a wide range of the finest materials available made for durability, comfort and a bit of fun. Knitted on vintage knitting machines from the 70's, in small runs with hand-linked toes to ensure optimal quality.

Inspired by traditional knitting patterns and cultures from around the globe, as well as style cues from contemporary japanese fashion, Anonymous Ism aims to create socks that "make everyone find true happiness".

What is cashmere?

Cashmere is one of the finest natural fibres in the world and is obtained from the hair of cashmere goats (Capra Hircus Laniger) from Mongolia, where around 40 million goats contend with winter temperatures as low as -30°C.

Due to the low temperatures, their coat is made up of two distinct layers - the outer layer (guard hair) and the undercoat (cashmere). The guard hair is coarse and waterproof, which serves to protect the goat (and the undercoat). The undercoat is ultrafine, soft and an excellent insulator, to protect the goat from the extreme cold. Only the soft, ultrafine undercoat is used to produce cashmere. In spring, as the goats moult for summer, they are combed by hand to remove their ultrafine undercoat, while leaving the guard hair intact.

These combings are then washed and sorted to remove any stray guard hairs. What is left is pure cashmere. This laborious process results in a fibre that is exceptionally exquisite and rare. It therefore it commands a higher price than more easily obtained fibres.
