The story of RoToTo Double Face Socks
Inspired by hearty mountain climbing socks, RoToTo Double Face Socks socks are thick, comfortable and feel more like a sweatshirt than your average pair of socks. The double layered “Double Face” design, is a process that allows for different materials to be knitted on the outside and the inside of the sock to utilise different thread properties. Using this production technique, merino wool on the outside and thick looped-back organic undyed cotton on the inside creates a comfortable texture and gives the joy of organic cotton against your skin.
We’ve been wearing Double Face socks from RoToTo for a couple of years and have tested them during countless winter hikes in the Northumberland and Lake District hills. They’re exceptionally comfortable and, even with frequent all-day wear in tough, heavy hiking boots, they look as good as they did brand new. The merino wool outer gives protection from moisture and the organic cotton inside keeps your feet warm and comfortable even in the harshest of conditions.
RoToTo socks are manufactured in the Nara Prefecture, Hiroyu, Japan using vintage knitting machines brought to Japan from the USA in the early 1900s. Avoiding mass production, they support skilled craftsmen and women who operate these machines manually and have developed a deep knowledge of their materials and manufacturing processes. Made with comfort and functionality in mind, the Baja Cali socks are designed to be “lifelong consumables”, to be worn hard and to take whatever you throw at them.
