We use range of wools including, Lambs wool and Merino wool to create the softest socks that provides warmth and comfort throughout the day.
The fibres make it exceptionally soft, lightweight, resilient and fits snugly on your feet.
At Tabio, we use Merino sheep breed that produces the highest quality wool in the world.
Every year Merino sheeps produce new fleece, making wool a completely renewable fibre.
The characteristics of Merino wool are good insulation, transports moisture and has anti-static properties.

One micron is equal to one millionth of a metre and fibre length is recorded in millimetres – these are the main measurements which determine the quality and use of the wool.
Wool with the finest micron comes from Merino sheep is used for high-quality, soft-handling fabrics and knitting yarns.
Which means the finer the wool fibre is, the better quality.
Tabio's premium wool socks use 17.5 micron thread (shrink-proof wool class super 120's / 17.5 micron).
* Extra fine merino → 18.5 to 19.5 microns
* Super extra fine merino → 16.5 to 17.5 microns
The average micron of human hair is between 50 to 100 micron. Merino wool is generally less than 22 micron, which shows just how soft this premium fibre is.
You can use a washing machine, but hand washing or low temperature and low rotation cycles is recommended to maintain the soft texture.
Dark coloured products may fade slightly, so please wash them separately.
Avoid using chlorine bleach. Avoid using a dryer and dry it in the shade.
*Washing at high water temperature or using a dryer may cause shrinkage.
