Chup - Lumimesta Crew Sock - Biscotti
Yet another season, and another round of Chup. They have become our go-to brand for socks due to their incredible construction. The patterns keep them fresh, but to be honest we would buy them if they were black and white. They've been in the lineup for years now and we're more impressed every time. They hold up to washing and drying extremely well, even though they don't recommend it. That's even more impressive to us. The combed cotton is Made in Japan and carries no impurities. It's also stronger and fluffier than your everyday cotton. The patterns are what sell you upfront, but the quality is what keeps you coming back for life.
We don't have our typical description of "naming" from Chup this round, as they have yet to post their wools. Well, that's not going to stop us from getting them up. We can only venture to guess this "Lumimesta" word is once again a Scandinavian word for luminescent. That's probably due to the bright colors displayed throughout this brilliant sock. These are quite honestly our favorite of the lot. And they're wool which makes them even sturdier and more resistant to the elements.
Materials: Wool, Nylon, Polyurethane, Rayon
Fit Notes: If you've never bought Chup before, they may feel tight when putting them on. They don't have much natural stretch and even in the stretch that is there, they are very sculpted to the foot. They can take a minute to get on in the morning, but that's what we love so much about them. The shape keeps them up on the ankles and fitting without stretching, or wearing out for the years you'll have them.
