Sustainable socks, made in the UK. The most sustainable socks are the ones that you already own. Socko is on a mission to extend the active life of clothing by re-teaching the lost art of darning. Each pair of Socko socks comes with a swatch of yarn, a darning needle and step by step instructions to promote the idea of reinforcing and repairing rather than throwing away.
