Bamboo socks are bamboo fibre socks as you guessed. But be careful when you buy bamboo socks, since some firms refer to their socks as "bamboo socks," but utilise chemical bamboo fibre. Their natural qualities have been lost and will not be as effective as the original bamboo fibres. So it is best to have bamboo socks manufactured from bamboo fibres that are not chemically treated.


Bamboo fibres offer exceptional natural characteristics in terms of apparel and notably socks, apart from being incredibly soft and comfy.


Apart from being extremely soft and comfortable, bamboo fibers have remarkable natural properties when it comes to clothing, and especially to socks.

Bamboo socks are temperature-regulating
Bamboo fibers are thermo-regulating. That means bamboo socks will keep your feet warm in the winter and keep your feet cool in the summer. How is that even possible, you may ask?

Thermo-regulated fibres – used in what is called “all-weather clothing” – are able to respond to ambient temperature and maintain the microclimate equilibrium inside the sock. To be more technically correct, fabrics do not provide thermo-regulation themselves. Instead, thermo-regulating fabrics are able to not inhibit and support the thermo-regulation of the body itself. Thermo-regulating socks, such as bamboo socks, work because their fabric allows air to circulate around the feet and at the same time provide a cushion of insulation when the body needs protection from the outside temperature (be it from the heat or from the cold).

Bamboo socks wick moisture away from the skin of your feet, and dry faster than regular socks. They’re able to keep your feet much dryer and for much longer than regular socks.
