Trekking Socks (thick)
Pieffe Sport focuses particularly on the many functions of the foot for the whole body, which is why we use yarns and processes that offer the best performance for the well-being of the body.
For these socks we employ Lenpur, a yarn made of pure cellulose, ecological and healthy, which is obtained from wood with a fully sustainable process. This fiber is characterized by being smooth to the touch and its high absorbency and moisture release power.
Another yarn which we employ in the production of our trekking socks is Dryarn—an ultra-lightweight, high-performance, polypropylene fiber, with very high levels of breathability, which allows sweat to be collected and transferred from the skin, along the surface of the fiber to the outer layer, where it is absorbed by Lenpur, which then releases it to the environment.
This combination of fibers provides the sock with excellent thermoregulation, breathability, and sweat absorption properties. And yarn technology doesn’t stop with just these two extraordinary fibers, it is further improved by other equally high-performing and unique fibers.
Cupron, whose technology confers the products exclusive benefits, has developed and patented a technology to incorporate copper into the yarns. This element guarantees the sock hygienic and anti-odor characteristics, as it kills 99.9% of the bacteria and fungi that cause bad odors, improving the well-being of the leg and foot, and is particularly indicated for those seeking performance and recovery.
Friction Free is a special processing technology that reduces friction, helping to prevent redness and blisters. Finally, Lycra ensures impeccable fit, durability, excellent stretchability with optimal comfort.
