The list below is edited selection of all the companies I’ve come across over the years and found while researching this article. I left out companies that don’t have Europe based retailers or etailers.
I’ve also omitted providers of bamboo fibre socks, except for one; Boody. You can read exactly why I don’t rate bamboo in my article on Sustainable Ethical Fabrics and Fibres
I’ve organise the listing under headings that most likely match most readers objectives; organic, recycled, and / or with a lifetime guarantee. If I’ve missed any out please let me know. This article is dedicated to Íde and her search for sustainable socks!
Nothing mentioned in this article has been sponsored. It’s all just my own personal opinion.
