Lovely but shrunk after one wash

When I first put them on I thought I’d found the best socks in the world. They’re so soft and warm!

One wash, and the area around the stitching has shrunk to the point that I can’t get them on. Really disappointing :( Sea salt is usually worth the extra money.

Nice design

Warm and cosy winter socks with a nice design. I didn’t experience the shrinking issue (yet) that other people mention, but so far have only worn and washed them once, so I keep my fingers crossed! What I don’t like about these socks (and some other Seasalt socks) is the white woven label. It’s very visible and distracts from the nice pattern! Wouldn’t it be a much more subtle alternative to just print your logo on the bottom?

Lovely but band very tight

I'm a natural fibre person and only wear wool sox in winter. These are fab but even my size 5/6 foot is a squeeze to get thru the decorative band. I always handwash my wool so hope no shrinkage. But a tip for others, in case it helps, is that wool breathes and maintains your natural temperature so you can wear them more than once before washing if you want because it doesn't sweat and smell like man-made fabrics. I wish seasalt would make more wool sox I only have 2 to choose from whereas you have lots of the man-made ones!

fair isle socks

I have been looking for nice wool socks for ages, and l loved the colour and design of these. However, I did not realise that they were so delicate. I washed them using a cool delicate wash and they shrank around the fair isle pattern so much that that I can no longer get them on. Very expensive socks for one wear!

Hi Ruth
Thanks for your review of the Women's Fair Isle Socks, but we're sorry to hear they have shrunk.
We do specify 'hand wash' on these 66% lambswool socks as although the wool/delicate setting on a washing machine is usually a cold wash, shrinkage in wool garments can also be caused by agitation. The machine wash will provide this agitation and will effectively 'felt' the wool. Different machines will agitate at differing speeds and it's possible that your machine, whilst having the 'wool/delicate' option has damaged the fibres of these socks.
If it helps, we list care instructions in the 'Details' on each garment page, or if you prefer, our customer service team would be pleased to help with specific care/washing queries. Call 01326 640075 or hop onto a chat at www.seasaltcornwall.co.uk
Best wishes

Great - until you wash them!

Very cosy until washed: the design band shrunk so tightly I could barely get them over my heels! I followed wash instructions (cold water, delicate) but still shrank - only this area. After two washings they have pilled up along the heels and the design band has become almost indistinct. They're still warm and comfy, but do not keep their appearance at all.

Beautiful socks but....

Be careful how you wash these-only cold wash as the band gets very tight

Thanks for your review and feedback. As these are 66% Lambswool we would recommend a cool hand wash to keep them in optimum condition.

Not enough give in the pattern

These socks are very hard to get on my size 6.5 feet. This is because the wool used to make the pattern has far too much tension in it, so you really have to pull and twist your foot to get the sock on. If they shrink then I doubt I'll be able to get them on at all, so I will definitely handwash them. They are a lovely colour and pattern, but they should have been much bigger or come in two sizes (they are also quite short and skimpy in fit). I wouldn't recommend these unless you have tiny feet and ankles.

Hi Scotch
Thank you for reviewing the Women's Fair Isle Socks. The 'Size Guide' for these is 'One Size' 3 to 8, but we're sorry to hear they weren't perfect for you this time and of course we'll arrange a 'no quibble' refund for you if you'd like to pop them back to us using your free post label.
We've got some beautiful socks in our new collection. The Women's Cabin Socks might just be perfect so do take a look...
Best wishes
Seasalt

Are these for wearing?

Lovely colours and pattern. I bought these for a friend and have just read the washing instructions. Hand wash only, do not soak, do not rub, do not wring, dry flat, do not tumble dry, etc etc. Are these really for ‘padding round the house’ and country walks or just for decoration?

Dear Fairisle Fan,
Thanks for your review of the Women’s Fair Isle Socks; we do recommend handwashing as these are predominately lambswool and using a machine may shrink and ‘felt’ the wool.
If you’d like to discuss further please call our friendly customer service team on 01326 640075 or pop onto Live Chat on our website at www.seasaltcornwall.co.uk.
Best wishes, Seasalt.

Fair isle socks

Purchased as a gift ( not yet presented)and following a request for a review,decided to try them on.I Am now apprehensive regarding the fit and the ease of getting them on!
For a size 6 1/2 I think the fit will be close and therefore not as warm as they could be .Really do hope they do not shrink!
Not nearly as thrilled as I expected to be!
