Complement the lasting comfort and fit of socks made with LYCRA® fiber by adding the latest innovation developed at The LYCRA Company: THERMOLITE® FAR INFRARED technology. This lightweight hollow fiber technology uses special ceramic pigments that generate warmth to keep feet warmer longer.

Socks with THERMOLITE® FAR INFRARED Technology

Consumer-Preferred Features

Today’s consumers expect more from their socks. They want high-tech features that deliver desirable benefits, including:

• Warmth: cold feet are a major source of discomfort. Socks that can keep feet warm offer consumers a real benefit.

• Quick Drying: Sweaty feet are a common problem. Moisture-wicking socks provide relief by keeping feet dry and comfortable all-day long.

• Lightweight:  Wearing thick socks or layering them to keep feet warm can lead to foot pain caused by constant rubbing or tight shoes. Light socks that deliver warmth without weight are optimal.

THERMOLITE® FAR INFRARED technology is designed to meet these consumer expectations. It can be used to create versatile, everyday socks that offer lasting comfort suitable for any activity.

Double the Brand Power

Socks knitted with our new THERMOLITE® FAR INFRARED technology are additionally enhanced by the mandatory use of LYCRA® fiber in the sock top and leg. This offers brands and retailers the opportunity to drive sales by harnessing the power of two highly regarded brands.
