Health socks with a relaxed hem are very comfortable, pleasantly soft, and wonderfully warm socks made of polypropylene fiber. With a loose hem, they are a necessary piece of clothing for those plagued by inadequate blood circulation to the lower extremities or diabetes. The hem of the socks is loose and therefore they do not constrict the foot in any way, yet they fit beautifully on the foot. PROLEN® polypropylene fibre has many great properties such as temperature stability, so your feet won’t sweat in PROLEN®Siltex socks. If your feet are always cold at home, we can’t recommend anything better than these loose-fitting socks.
Karpathia- Health socks with loose hem.
Are made from the unique Prolen®Siltex polypropylene fibre, which is characterised by its excellent thermal insulation properties. Prolen® fibre wicks away moisture the fastest of all fibres, to the next absorbent layer or surrounding area. At the same time, Prolen® fibre is the lightest of all fibres (up to 40% lighter than cotton fibre). Because Prolen® fiber is dyed in the mass, it retains its color fastness and does not release color into your skin. This protects your health while extending the colour life of the product. Prolen® fibre products can resist stains. With its 100% recyclability, by purchasing Prolen® fiber products, you are being environmentally responsible and helping to protect the environment for generations to come.
Prolen® polypropylene fibre has been produced in Slovakia since 1970 by Chemosvit Fibrochem s.r.o. The Karpathia® socks use Prolen®Siltex antibacterial fibre, which is treated with a permanent silver ion-based antibacterial treatment.
Prolen® and Prolen®Socks
Karpathia- Health socks with a relaxed hem, is a product that we manufacture directly in Slovakia. Therefore, there is no need to treat it with formaldehyde to cover long distances, as is the case, for example, with deliveries from Asia. Unlike other fibers and clothing made from them, Prolen® and clothing made from it are “skin friendly” and can be worn by people with the most sensitive skin.
Prolen® fibre does not react with chemicals produced by perspiration. When silver ions are applied, Prolen®Siltex is produced, which is also used to make Prolen®Socks. It counteracts the growth of bacteria, reduces unpleasant odours, maintains the biological balance of the skin and ensures hygienic freshness. The antibacterial effect of silver has been known since the time of ancient Rome. Prolen® fibre has a slightly negative charge which is beneficial for the human body. Negative ions help blood circulation, prevent free radicals, regulate autonomic nerves, activate cells and strengthen the immune system. Thanks to this, we can perform better.
Since Prolen® fibre has cetrificate according to Oekotex Standard 100, it meets the strict human-ecological requirements for the production of infant clothing. When you wear Prolen®, you know what you’re wearing. Silver ions actively prevent the growth of bacteria, reducing unpleasant odours and maintaining the biological balance of the skin, ensuring a feeling of hygienic freshness.
