The three biggest differences between sports socks and ordinary socks are thickness, wrapping power and durability. Terry sports socks are relatively thick sports socks from the manufacturing process. There are three factors that determine the thickness of the terry sports socks:
1. The height of the pile.
The higher the loop, the thicker the thickness. Generally, the loop height is 3~4mm. For badminton-specific or high-thickness sports socks, 5mm is generally required. This is generally called high loop in the factory. If higher loops are required, it is generally necessary to modify the socks machine. , The use of special needles requires more time and effort, so in addition to the high-priced big brand socks, the NBA’s elite socks series may use higher loops.
Personally, I don’t recommend that you only pursue thickness. Because everything will be converted within the limit, for example, the thickness represents abrasion resistance, friction resistance and shock absorption. However, if the thickness of the looped sports socks exceeds a certain level, and only the thickness is pursued, there will be problems such as close blockage with the sports shoes, increased thickness between the heels, and no feedback and freedom of dexterous movements.
2, the number of yarns.
The yarn for knitting socks is like we twist the hemp rope. Whether the two yarns are one or three must be different. Three yarns knitted loop stockings must be stronger than two yarns.
3, yarn count.
The number of counts is simply understood as the thickness of each line. Generally, the yarn count of sports socks is 32. The larger the number, the thinner the yarn, such as 40, the thicker the yarn smaller than this number, such as 24.
Because the thicker yarn weaving is generally a low-level cotton yarn, to draw a high thread (finer yarn), your material must be sufficiently delicate. Therefore, the home textile industry respects high branch lines very much. Because of skin-friendliness, comfort is better and more delicate. Using 40, it is indeed very delicate, but the best balance point for terry sports socks may be 32.
4. The density of socks.
The parameter setting of this sock machine, generally the higher the density value, the tighter the sock, but this parameter is not felt, as long as the touch texture is more conceptual.
