How should I wash my THORLO socks?Updated 4 months ago

Washing Recommendations


  • Wash in lukewarm or cool water in Regular/Delicate washer setting. Wash with like colors only.    
  • Do not use chlorinated bleach or laundry detergents containing chlorinated bleaching agents.  Using these agents results in fiber deterioration and breakdown of elasticity.  
  • We recommend they be laundered inside out to fluff the terry padding and achieve maximum cushioning.  Plus, this will prevent lint from accumulating on the outside of your Thorlo socks. 
  • To receive full benefit of the product design, we strongly recommend using LIQUID FABRIC SOFTENER in the rinse cycle.  This is vital to extend product wear.   Fabric softener enhances the wicking property of the fibers.   It lubricates both the fibers and the elastic keeping them flexible and allowing them to stretch as designed.  It also helps to maintain product sizing, softness, stretch ability and durability. 
  • Line drying is not recommended, as it can contribute to premature breakdown of the elastic core through a process called hydrolysis.  Consumers are advised to use a dryer and to tumble dry on permanent press or low heat.  High dryer temperatures could cause shrinkage and spandex breakdown.  The tumbling process will restore fiber loft for maximum impact protection. 
  • Be certain your socks have been thoroughly dried after laundering.  If socks are put away damp, spandex breakdown may result due to excess moisture still present in the elastic.
