I have had organic socks on my Amazon wishlist for about 2 years now. When you first started seeing organic clothing around a few years ago, I started thinking that if there were any particular articles of clothing that it might be better (health-wise) to go organic, I thought it would have to be socks. If you think about it, they are closely pressed against your skin for many consecutive hours at a time. With our skin absorbing what it touches it just seemed to me that it would be better to have organic cotton on my feet rather than normal pesticide-ridden cotton. Therefore, the priority should be to transition my sock drawer to all-organic before my t-shirt drawer.
So that brings us to today, the nice folks over at Zkano sent me a few pairs of their 100% organic cotton socks to try out. So, I have spent the last 3 days wearing them non-stop and I really like them. I went for a 3-mile hike yesterday in them and the thickness of the cotton was great. I normally wear big wool socks for winter hikes, but the Zkano socks I got were plenty thick enough to give the cushion I needed.
You know, I will just say this, I get frustrated that in so many markets and grocery stores the organic produce tastes worse than the conventional and it seems like I often have to sacrifice freshness for organic – I am happy to say that these socks require no such sacrifice. They are just as soft and fluffy as any other socks on the market – and you get the warm fuzzy feeling of knowing that you are wearing organic socks!
