Five brands of socks met the requirement for a strong and flat seam in the forefoot of the product; in the products ‘Nosi Svoye!’ and ‘Senator’ found rare seam stitches. It is also specified that in the socks of ‘Askomi’, ‘Nosi Svoye!’, and ‘Senator’ brands is a lower percentage of cotton than stated on the label.
It is noted that sock manufacturers of all brands use permanent dyes. No substances harmful to health have been identified in the products of six brands. However, only ‘Askomi’ brand socks effectively absorbed moisture. Experts advised that when buying, special attention should be paid to the composition of the product, and preference is recommended to be given to natural fibers.
