The story of RoToTo Low Gauge Slub Crew Socks
RoToTo Low Gauge Slub Crew Socks are a beautifully made everyday sock made on rare vintage knitting machines imported to Japan from the USA. Because of the rarity of the machines, only a small number of people have the technical ability to operate them, therefore RoToTo has worked with a select group of craftsmen to product these very special socks. They’re constructed from a fabric that combines recycled cotton and thick cotton slub yarns to give a textured appearance.
We’ve been wearing RoToTo socks for several years and have tested them both in the city and on the trail. They’re incredibly hard-wearing and will keep their appearance, colour and shape year after year.
- 96% cotton, 3% polyester, 1% polyurethane
- Knitted on vintage machines
- Thick recycled and organic cotton yarns
- Versatile enough to be worn year-round
- Made in Japan
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.

- UK7-9: Medium
- UK10-12: Large
