Tender’s rib cotton socks are knitted and hand linked in England from raw unbleached cotton, with nylon for durability, then dyed or left in their ‘unborn’ natural state, in which case they will shrink to fit with the first wash.
Traditional hosiery (like these socks) is knitted as a long continuous tube of many socks, which are then cut apart into individual socks. These are then linked, which means that the open sock has the two sides knitted together, leaving a flat, seamless, join at the toe. Linking requires the operator to loop every corresponding stitch of the top and bottom of the sock, by hand, onto a knitting machine.
Tender’s socks are made with a loop-back, or terry, double knit sole. This makes them especially comfortable, and appropriate to wear with lighter shoes or even heavy boots.

Please note that the colour in natural dyed socks may transfer for the first few wears- we recommend washing cool, with similar colours, and not wearing with light coloured shoes until the socks have been washed a few times.


Yellow Ochre, or limonite (for its lemon-yellow colour), is a naturally occurring iron ore, which was used as a pigment in Neolithic cave paintings, particularly in Africa, dating to approximately 25000 BCE. Limonite has been mined for the production of iron for at least 4500 years, and more recently was discovered to be an indicator of gold seams.

Prospectors in Lumpkin County, Georgia, dug through limonite to expose quartz veins holding gold deposits at the beginning of the Georgia gold rush, in 1828.

In Ancient Egypt, yellow ochre was used to represent gold, or the eternal, in tomb paintings. While men were portrayed with brown faces, women’s faces in Ancient Egyptian art were always painted with yellow ochre.
