About Thunders Love Socks

Thunders Love was founded in 2015 in a small town in the northwest of Spain, at the bottom of a beautiful estuary at the mouth of the Lérez river, the socks are made by small “ateliers” in the north of Portugal.

THE SOCKS

Each of the socks is made with Egyptian cotton threads famous for their long fibres and thin threads.
The long fibre increases the quality, and the thin thread allows a greater density of the fabric. All the threads are collected by hand, which reduces the pressure on the fibre and protects it, making the socks are soft and durable.
As well as Egyptian cotton, each pair has 1% elastane, meaning that the socks are one size fits all, and very easy to get on and off.

Since William Lee invented the knitting machine in 1589 technology has advanced a lot but Thunder's Love remains faithful to its manufacturing principles by manufacturing our socks in machines of 54, 84 and 96 needles that allows us to mix several threads per channel, which helps create the texture in each colourway.

Nice!  I’m guessing these are considerably thinner than the chups?

I wouldn't say so, based on the two samples I have, but maybe a little less substantial. I will do a weight comparison when these arrive (later today)
