Is it better to buy bamboo fiber or cotton when buying socks?

2023-10-17

Why are the same socks, bamboo fiber socks on the market are more expensive than cotton socks? What is the difference between the two? Let's talk to you today.

First of all, let's talk about why bamboo fiber socks are more expensive than cotton socks. The fundamental reason is cost.

We have been doing cotton clothes and socks for many years. The cotton processing industry has extremely mature assembly lines and industrial processes, and the cost is lower.

Moreover, the characteristics of cotton itself determine that it is easier to spin into threads than other fibers.

But bamboo fiber socks is different. Bamboo fiber will not grow by itself. We have to make it ourselves. From the initial processing of bamboo to the final bamboo fiber, it takes a series of complicated processing steps and equipment support, which is time-consuming, labor-intensive and extremely costly. High, so in terms of manufacturing, bamboo fiber socks are a little more expensive than cotton socks.

And this also determines that the final price of bamboo fiber is higher than that of cotton socks.

Then we asked the second question, bamboo fiber socks or cotton socks, which one is better? What is the difference between the two?

First of all, let’s talk about their antibacterial and antibacterial properties. Friends who have worn cotton socks should know that they have the characteristics of strong water absorption, comfort and softness, but if you wear them for a long time, cotton socks are easy to age and dry after washing. Dry, it will harden, and even stand up after drying.

Not only that, but cotton and linen are worn for a long time, and it is easy to breed bacteria, leading to foot odor.

Bamboo fiber is different, it is not as soft as cotton socks, but it has extremely strong antibacterial ability, and its antibacterial and antibacterial rate can reach 70%~96%.

And what causes foot odor? It is bacteria and fungi, and wearing bamboo fiber socks can greatly avoid the embarrassment caused by foot odor.

After talking about the antibacterial and antibacterial properties, let's compare the difference between the two in terms of cooling and ventilation.

Cotton socks are actually breathable, but they are still much worse than bamboo fibers, which is determined by the characteristics of the two fibers.

Bamboo fiber has a unique hollow tube structure, which allows bamboo fiber to quickly absorb and volatilize water, thereby keeping feet dry.

Compared with natural fibers such as cotton socks, bamboo fiber has the strongest air permeability and moisture release, so consumers often choose bamboo fiber socks when conditions permit.
