▸ Washing

  • All Ground Effect clothing enjoys a warm 40ºC machine wash. Try to avoid cold-water detergents and those with bleach, 'oxygen whitener' or fabric softener.
    • The cold-water varieties have little enzymes that are super-charged to brave the cold but can damage technical fabrics and cause skin irritation. 
    • Bleach rots natural fibres like merino, strips the dye, attacks laminates of waterproof fabrics and can also cause skin irritation.
    • Sodium Percarbonate (the main ingredient in oxygen whitener) can make colours run.
    • Fabric softener and stuff containing it like wool wash destroys the water repellent finish on waterproof and water resistant fabrics, and can cause colours to run. 
  • As a rule of thumb, a product that is easy on the planet is also easy on your body. Select a mild plant-based soap like EcoverEcostoreEarthwise 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.
  • Most Ground Effect gear dries super-fast so hanging on the line or drooping over the bedpost is generally the best option. High heat can damage some fabrics so if you do take your threads for a spin, set the device on 'medium' or 'warm' rather than hot. A lap in the dryer is recommended for your rain jacket, after it has dried on the line, as it helps recharge its water repellent finish. 

  • Wash colours separately.

    The sock themselves is a 5 star for the product but not great in terms of fitting smaller shoe size. The size small really fits properly for size 8-9 not for size 7 like we had hoped. Be great if there was a smaller size that actually fitted the smaller womens size

    Right socks, wrong size

    They would be superb socks, but they're a fraction too big for my Euro 44 feet, so they ball up a bit unless I'm reeeally careful with putting my bike shoes on. The next size down throttled my feet and I finished up giving them away.

    No comment. It's almost winter here and haven't worn them yet.

    Great all-round socks

    Comfortable socks that can go the distance without slipping down, recommend what ever your discipline.
