Socks & Tights
You may have bought 'seamless' products before, which turned out to have seams after all - the terminology manufacturers use can be confusing! It's a minefield!
So to make things much easier, this is how we describe the seaming (or lack of) in all our ranges:
There are two types of undies we have -
Seamless are woven in one piece to have no joins at all, this can sometimes make them a bit thicker. They are very stretchy and fit the contours. As they stretch the fabric gets thinner so they aren't actually as thick as they may first feel out of the packet. If you are on the cusp of a size with seamless we always recommend to buy down as you want the garment to be fully stretched. Examples of these are SmartknitKids and Skinnies.
Seamfree undies can be made in thinner material and are not woven. If they are not woven they must have joins but in the brands we stock the seams have been adapted - oversewn, hand linked, sewn flat, or other means of comfort to make sure the seams lie flat. The join will show as a line. Examples of these are Brubeck and SAM SensoryStill confused about seams?
