To create the Duray Iceberg Sock, it begins with natural fibres (sheep’s wool, lamb’s wool, cotton) and synthetics (nylon, spandex, polyester, etc.) that arrive at the warehouse to be sorted, amalgamated for blends, and carded. Carding consists of feeding blended textiles through drums that are lined with fine steel bristles, to divide the fibres then gather them back together. During the carding process, other fibres are added to the wool, and colour blends are created. Duray’s well-known practice of adding nylon to their socks specifically makes knits more durable, retaining their strength and shape throughout their lifetime. An ideal choice for winter riding, wool is the only textile that offers the essential balance between thermal protection and moisture control. 85% Wool, 12% Nylon, 3% Spandex.
