Our Process & Materials

Quality Materials. Streamlined, Sustainable Process

We’re very particular about what zkano socks are made of and how they are manufactured. Our organic cotton is grown on farms in the Southern U.S. by farmers we actually know. After harvest, cotton travels to the Carolinas where it is spun and dyed (with low-impact dyes) before arriving at our mill in Alabama.

We knit socks in very small batches at our family owned and operated mill. Our team of ten (including Mom and Dad) run the manufacturing process from start to finish. And, because our entire operation is under one roof, we're able to constantly monitor quality throughout each step of the process, minimize waste and deliver a stellar product.

Additionally, our packaging, labels and marketing materials are printed within a 100-mile radius of our mill. That’s our whole process, straightforward and simple!

Giving and Recycling: Our irregular socks are donated to the mOM doll Project and to homelessness shelters and community organizations in Alabama.

We have some socks that are not fit for donations. These are repurposed or recycled and if recycled, they are transformed back into yarn used to make socks.

Great socks!

My 12 yo son loves these!

Shelley Kramer (Spokane, US)
The perfect white sock!

I was looking high and low for plain, white cotton socks made in America. Found them! They wash and wear fabulously. And, I'm so happy to support a family run business, as well!

Starla Ingalls Richardson (Union Springs, US)
True Story

Had a Patient wouldn't take off his Socks for Surgery, "Best Socks in the World", What are they? Zkano, You will never where anything else. Ten years later, He was right. Ordered a 3 Pack, then another, tried the grey footbed, and others. I still have and wear the original ten year old socks. I wash them, Do not dry them, Just air dry around the Laundry basket and I am just now getting another 3 pack. So Yes , Best Socks in the World.

Jane Tomaine (Watchung, US)
Comfortable and Cushiony

A new venture for me to purchase this kind of sock from Zkano, but the purchase was well worth it. I will soon order the ankle version to experience more of the cushion comfort.

Teresa M. (Jefferson, US)
Best socks ever!

Love these socks, they’re soft, comfy and they breathe, no hot itchy feet. Also, the right amount of cushion, good for sports, outdoor chores. And they’re made in the USA, yay!

Anonymous (Woodridge, US)
Good so far

We're still on our first wash and wear, but so far they look great and feel great. The big test comes as they withstand repeated washes and lots and lots of walking. That review can't be written for a good year or so, but I expect several years out of a pair of socks, and I've gotten them before. Taking a chance here on USA-made; I really hope it works out.

Soft and cushiony - to protect from pain of peripheral neuropathy

Bought these for my brother who is undergoing chemo which can cause painful neuropathy in toes and feet. So grateful for these soft and high-quality socks.

haymann (Brinkhaven, US)

VanMac (Portland, US)
Great socks

I get these every year for my boyfriend and he likes them.

Lina D (Denver, US)
The right upgrade for winter!

These socks are super cozy! The added cushioning makes them extremely comfortable with the boost of warmth needed for winter while the sizing is slim enough to fit into your normal shoes and routines.
