Functional socks Karpathia are made in Europe, Slovakia. Karpathia socks contain Slovak polypropylene yarn Prolen® which is produced in Chemosvit Fibrochem, s.r.o company. Prolen® yarn has excellent thermo-insulating properties and it is the lightest ever created (40% lighter than cotton). Thanks to the moisture management, direct contact of Prolen® with the skin leaves it dry and odourless even in the most extreme circumstances. As Prolen® is dope-dyed, its colours remain permanent, do not wash away and do not migrate to our skin. It is stain resistant and 100% recyclable.
Prolen® Siltex yarn containing biogenic silver ions is used in Karpathia socks. PP yarn Prolen® Siltex is treated with an antibacterial modication based on silver ions, active substance: silver phosphate glass. Silver ions prevent the growth of bacteria, reduce upleasant odors, maintain the biological balance of the skin and ensure hygienic freshness.
