This extra large sock is a soft Health Sock® made with absorbent and breathable mercerised cotton combined with fine elastane throughout. It is knitted with a rib to allow extra stretch around the foot and leg and to provide a firm fit so that the sock does not slip or become baggy. Extra large socks are knitted wider than a normal sock to fit larger feet which are usually wider or more bulky. As socks are a knitted fabric, when they are stretched width-ways the sock necessarily becomes shorter. This is a light to medium weight sock suitable for year-round wear.
