Kingly becomes increasingly environmentally-friendly

Kingly’s upcycled socks are made with 100% post-consumer nylon

Kingly has announced that its upcycled sock collection now comes as standard with 100% post-consumer nylon and its sports socks with regenerated polyester.

The recycling process for the post-consumer nylon is ecologically sustainable as it is obtained from the waste of raw materials in the production phase that, if not recycled, would have to be disposed of in a waste plant.

The 100% recycled polyester yarn used in the sports socks is recovered from plastic bottles. Production is environmentally-friendly by using a highly efficient recycling process that significantly reduces the consumption of C02, energy and water.

Both yarns are certified by Oeko-Tex Standard 100 and GRS, to meet the needs of companies seeking to verify the recycled content of their products.

Not only this, but Kingly now uses FSC certified packaging to pack its knitted socks.

Forest Stewardship Council certified packaging and materials are created from forests specifically intended for use in production, eliminating illegal deforestation of undesignated land.
