knee length sock

The Eventer is a lightweight, plain-knit sock with a lightly elasticated top.

Originally designed to fit inside riding boots, they are also popular with business men and with ladies who prefer a longer sock. Also perfect as a lightweight ski sock for those who have close fitting moulded ski boots.

SKU: Eventer Category:


The Eventer socks

For men, women and children. Plain-knit throughout, reaching up to just below the knee. Hard wearing and will last for ages. Resilient and will keep their shape after many days of wear. Odour resistant (smooth mohair fibres have nowhere for smelly foot bacteria to lurk). Can be machine washed at 40⁰c (see washing instructions). Available in 14 colours.

Fibre Content: 55% Mohair, 45% JAS Nylon

Why add nylon? Mohair itself has relatively little elasticity and so we add nylon to give extra stretch. The nylon does not detract from the beneficial effects of the mohair.

    Great socks. stay up all day. no gathering under foot when walking in wellies. Best socks ever. Have managed to wear a few pairs out in 20 years. Branching out into new styles now.

    Over the past 3 or 4 years I seem to have acquired a selection of three different sorts of Corrymore socks, and I like them all. Corrymore socks always do what it says on the box: furthermore they are the most consistently comfortable socks I have ever worn.
    I haver only one complaint: Corrymore never seem to wear out, so my ‘sock drawer’ is now full.

    Buy a pair and try for your self.

Caring for your socks

“In 25 years the mohair fibre and ingredients of your Corrymoor Socks haven’t changed…..but detergents and washing machines have.”

So what is the best way to care for your Corrymoors?

  • Do not use detergents containing enzymes—check the detergent packaging
  • Wool wash at 40°c
  • Use a gentle spin (most wool washes will incorporate this into the cycle anyway)
  • Do not tumble dry
  • Wash dark colours separately at first

A Bit of Science and tips on washing
Mohair is a fibre made up of the protein keratin (like your own hair, silk, wool and other animal fibres). The scales of the mohair fibre are flattened and overlay each other giving a smooth surface (unlike wool). This gives mohair its smooth handle and high lustre and your Corrymoor Socks their unique hard-wearing, anti-bacterial (no smell), wicking and non-felting properties.

Mohair has a much greater resistance to shrinking and felting than other natural fibres, but it too finds it hard to resist the action of the protease enzymes found in many of the “low temperature” detergents. Sadly, the enzymes cannot tell the difference between dirt and the protein fibres of the mohair which can ultimately weaken and breakdown resulting in slight shrinkage and felting of your beloved Corrymoors.

For your Information (although we do not recommend you try this out at home)
Corrymoors are dyed in water which reaches boiling point, this is then followed by rinsing AND spinning AND tumble drying!

Why not choose to have your socks without the cardboard sleeve? For many years, repeat customers have chosen to receive their socks with reduced packaging.

Please note: We do not recommend this option if you are a NEW CUSTOMER or if the socks are a GIFT as it contains the washing instructions, style and fibre content etc.

Here at Corrymoor we are always looking to reduce our carbon footprint. Where possible we try to use sustainable products that can be recycled/composted in your household waste.
