What is combed cotton?
From the cotton plant, cotton is a natural fiber whose primary mission is to protect the seed of the shrub. The preparation of cotton begins with the harvesting and ginning of the fibers. They are then separated and cleaned before being combed. Combing is very important because it allows to eliminate the short fibers to keep only the longest cotton fibers. These long fibers bring a superior quality to the cotton yarn which will be finer, more resistant and softer. This cotton made of long fibers is called combed cotton. At Bleuforêt, we traditionally knit this high-end material to ensure that it retains all its properties. That's why Bleuforêt combed cotton socks are so soft, comfortable and durable. Find combed cotton in our fashion socks, our sports socks and our essential socks.
Quality socks for every style, all year round
While our combed cotton socks can be worn in any season and with any style, you may have other desires. In winter, for example, when warmth is in order, you can count on our warm socks made of merino wool, cashmere or alpaca. In mid-season, our socks in Scottish yarn or silk will add elegance to your most stylish outfits. For hot summer days, our women's linen socks keep your feet cool while our nylon socks are so thin they'll be forgotten. We also think about sportswomen! For you, we have developed a collection of technical sports socks adapted to each practice. Whatever your style, the season, the weather and your mood, at Bleuforêt you will always find a (quality) sock to suit you!
