Made in Japan
Rototos Washi Pile Crew socks are made using Washi, Japanese paper, yarn blend. That's right, paper. Made out of natural manila hemp fiber, washi yarn has excellent water-absorbent and moisture-wicking properties, and dries quickly. These socks will keep your feet comfortable, warm and dry. Washi yarn is difficult to pile knit, but with a special machine and artisanal craftmanship in Nara Prefecture, Rototo managed to do so.
M: 25 – 27 cm / EU 39 – 42
