Shortly after opening its doors in 1937, the Pantherella brand dedicated itself to manufacturing novelty socks for men. Produced by a bespoke machine, their creations are lightweight and have no uncomfortable seams. Recognition of their excellence is rapid thanks to their three requirements, maintained to this day: source of materials, design, and quality.
hollington has chosen for you this model of lisle thread socks, finished by hand to offer you the best quality available. The famous lisle yarn has two manufacturing secrets: the first lies in the selection of very long cotton fibres, and the second is mercerization, invented by a young Englishman, John Mercer, in 1844. This treatment standardizes the thickness of the thread and thus improves its functions of solidity and elasticity.
Lisle socks are a solid and comfortable basic. Soft and light, they also have thermoregulatory properties. Their contrasting colour at the heel and toe brighten up any outfit. They can be associated with a pair of jeans and casual shoes as well as with smarter clothes.
