All For Socks In Summer

Ask the person who told you socks are a winter-only accessory to put a sock in it! Socks are as much a summer accessory as one for winter. Socks are evergreen! You can wear socks all year round, all you need to do is a fair bit of research on the kind of patterns, textures and materials for each season-- we pulled our socks up and did that for you. Here’s all you need to know before you go on a sock shopping spree…

It is imperative you understand that plays a huge role in the construction of socks and that is why, you must make sure to read the hosiery composition on the packaging of your socks.

Socks don’t just look good during summer-- like in winter, socks serve as feet warmers, their primary functionality in summer is to keep your feet protected from excess heat and absorb sweat to keep even the sweatiest of feet dry when the temperatures reach an all time high. Additionally, they provide cushioning to the feet.

Now, how much support and absorbency your socks can provide you will depend on the yarn quality. If the Hosiery Yarn used in the production of these socks is of poor quality, naturally, you can’t expect them to last long or provide appropriate absorbency.

Then, if the socks aren’t knit properly and the hosiery yarn develops slubs (clumps of fibre sticking out) during the knitting process, the socks will not only be uncomfortable to wear because they’d poke your feet throughout the wearing duration, they might even lead to injuries.

So all you need to do is check your socks for smooth insides so they don’t hurt you and see that they stretch and retain shape. Also try them on to see if they don’t suffocate your feet and feel light as summer. Stripes, shapes or solids, wear ‘em flaunt ‘em!

The Importance Of Covered Spandex Yarn In The Garment Manufacturing Industry

Covered Spandex Yarn is not a commonly heard term for many, but for those who are involved in the manufacturing of yarn or garments, it is a resource to swear by. Why?

There are majorly two types of garments in the market-- fast moving high fashion garments or evergreen and less dynamic functional garments. Fashion garments are stylish dresses, shorts, trousers and spunky socks, to name a few. These go in and out of style very fast. Functional garments on the other hand tend to stay in the market for long with very few modifications like regular intimate wear, sports wear and more. Then somewhere there is a niche category for both fashionable and functional garments that pack the good qualities of both. The significant bit in this is that all of these three categories, in the current era are heavily dependent on covered spandex yarn.

How do you think your stretchable jeans gets its stretch as well as structure?

How do you think your bodycon dress fits like a second skin but still manages to give you breathing space?

How do you think your pantyhose manages to give you the perfect texture as well as freedom to move around like you have nothing on?

How do you think your intimate wear supports your body and retains its stretch?

All of this comes from the presence of good quality covered spandex yarn, like that brought to you by Inviya by Indorama, in your garments.

Can you imagine your life without this ingenious creation now?
