Tell me about your liner socks?

> Our lightweight liner socks are constructed from a blend of merino wool and nylon, tough enough to handle the knocks, and just enough merino wool to deal with sticky situations. Thinner than our cool-weather and winter socks they are designed to fit more comfortably into more performance orientated cycling shoes. They are all constructed in the same fashion, with the only real difference being in length.

Washing Instructions?

> All Ground Effect clothing enjoys a warm machine wash. Try to avoid cold-water detergents and those with bleach. The cold-water varieties have little enzymes that are super-charged to brave the cold but can damage technical fabrics and cause skin irritation. And bleach rots natural fibres like cotton, strips the dye and can also cause irritation. As a rule of thumb, product that is easy on the planet is also easy on your body. Select a mild plant-based soap like Ecover, Ecostore, Earthwise or Aware.

> Hand washing is sometimes the only option on tour, but a washing machine rinses more thoroughly and is preferable if you have the choice.

> Drying on the line or hanging on the bedpost is generally preferable to using a dryer. Most Ground Effect gear dries super-fast anyway. High heat can damage some fabrics so if you must take your threads for a spin set the device on 'medium' or 'warm' rather than hot.
