You and I know hemp is the perfect material for underwear, no matter whether you’re partial to hemp boxers or hemp thongs. But did you know hemp also makes for incredible socks? That’s right, hemp socks reign supreme when it comes to comfort and durability.
There are so many benefits to wearing one of the most sustainable fabrics on your feet. Hemp is naturally antibacterial and antifungal, so you’ll fight off the nasties without the use of harmful chemicals or harsh additives. Plus, hemp is super breathable and wicks moisture, perfect for staying comfy and cool all day long. And that’s not even all the hemp clothing benefits you’ll get from wearing hemp socks!
So there’s just one problem: where on earth are you meant to find the best hemp socks? No need to worry! I’ve put together a list of my favorite hemp sock brands. Whether you prefer a crew cut or ankle cut, a wild pattern or a subdued shade, there’s a brand you’re sure to love listed below.
