Cotton Rib Socks - Turmeric Dyed
Knitted and hand linked in England, Tender's Cotton rib Socks are crafted from an unbleached cotton yarn, with nylon added for durability. Left in their "unborn" state, the socks will shrink with their first wash. These socks are knit as a long, continuous tube, then cut apart into individual socks, with the toe hand linked.
These socks are dyed with Turmeric (Curcuma Longa), which has been used in the Indian subcontinent for thousands of years to dye clothing and flavour foods, and in religious ceremony.Turmeric is central to Hindu and Buddhist mythology- it is the colour of the sun, and is the dye used for wedding saris and Buddhist monks’ robes. In the Ayurveda system of traditional medicine (since ~1900BCE) turmeric-infused milk is used to cure many ailments.
