The Rest of the Story?
Why Did We Decide To Make Our Own?
We have offered many different "one-size" cotton socks over the years. Marcoliani ... Pantherella ... Facenti ... at times each has made a good sock but frankly, we cannot continue tolerating the inconsistency, the use of less-than-the-best yarns, the high-and-varying percentages of nylon, and the tendency to change colors willy-nilly. Our clients need Consistency! Consistency in Yarn Quality. Consistency in Color Selection. Consistency in Knitting Quality. Consistency in Hand-Linking. These are just a few of the reasons we decided to make our own.
What Is So Different About Our Kabbaz-Kelly Cotton Socks?
Consistency begins with the yarn. We selected Breciani's top Egyptian Giza cotton - the same one used for the ever popular Vanisee - and one which is consistently available in the colors we chose. Rather than the industry wide use of thicker yarns suited to lower-quality 120 needle machines, we used this ExtraFine Two-Ply cotton which is capable of being knitted on the super-high quality 200 needle machine. Significance? A 166% improvement over industry norms.
Consistency continues with stretch-ability. We lowered the nylon percentage down to 10% from the industry norms of 20%-30% and kept the usual 5% smidgen of Lycra. By using Bresciani's proprietary yarn blending machine - the only one still operating in the industry, we were able to double the stretch-ability of the socks, widely increasing their comfortable size range.
Finally, we hand-linked the toes which, combined with the 200 needle count, allowed us the use of the finest possible toe-closing yarn for the greatest comfort.
