Bamboo socks are becoming more and more popular with each passing season.
You might have already tried them with initial scepticism. Or, maybe you’re still wondering whether bamboo can ever live up to its reputation. We love a challenge! The following five reasons will reassure you why this luxurious - yet practical - sustainable ‘secret’ is becoming a firm favourite.
Why Bamboo Socks are the Most Preferred choice
Innovations in textile production have created incredible new fabric compositions ideally suited to producing socks for women and men. Their yarn comprises 75% Moso bamboo, 22% polyamide on the toe and heel, plus 3% elastane for a great fit. This makes them extremely durable, given the reinforced toes and heel, so you can enjoy them for longer.
Socks made from bamboo are replacing traditional materials such as cotton and wool. Many of our customers seek luxury without the upkeep. And we continue to exceed their expectations with our high-quality socks.
Are Bamboo Products Kind to Planet?
The bamboo and packaging used in Swole Panda products come from FSC-approved sources. Our Forest Stewardship Council status ensures your new bamboo accessories come from responsibly managed forests with environmental, social and economic benefits.
Here are just a few of the ways that bamboo is kind to the planet:
- No fertiliser or chemical pesticides are required
- It is considerably less thirsty than cotton
- This grass regrows after it’s harvested above ground
- Bamboo sequesters damaging greenhouse gases
- It produces 35% more oxygen than the equivalent stands of trees.

Socks Made Of Bamboo Are Soft And Comfortable
The buttery soft feel of bamboo socks has been compared to a cashmere-silk blend. Indeed, those with sensitive skin appreciate our Standard 100 certification by OEKO-TEX should reassure you. This globally recognised body has tested our bamboo socks and found them to be free from:
- Azo dyestuffs
- Extractable heavy metals.
Therefore you can wear (or gift them to those) with psoriasis, eczema and contact dermatitis. No one should be excluded from experiencing their feet wrapped in bamboo.
Bamboo Socks are Colourfast
Searching for bamboo socks by UK designers? Swole Panda’s design process is carried out by our British design team. For example, the recent launch of over 30 new Summer Styles shows how bold our bamboo socks can be. However, they have a timeless appeal that will help you accessorise your outfit 12 months of the year.
Naturally, you want your socks to stay looking as sharp as your fashion sense. That’s where bamboo’s colour absorbency during the dyeing stage of manufacture will have your back. You may even notice the extra brightness of your bamboo socks when stored beside others made from different materials.
Bamboo Socks Keeps The Right Temperature And Avoids Moisture
The genius of bamboo also lies in its temperature regulating properties. Our bamboo socks will keep you cool in summer, with warmer feet in winter.
Research carried out by Deakin University shows the benefits of wearing bamboo don’t stop there. A 2009 report discovered bamboo “wicks away moisture or perspiration in a second” due to its shape, “cracks” and “micro gaps”.
