It’s time to talk about socks! This is a sock anatomy lesson. There are many different types, styles and colors of socks. Some people like ankle socks, some like crew socks. Funky patterns and cool designs are always in style. We have it all here at Sock Club which means we’ve got your back when it comes to this summer essential.
When you look at a sock, it's easy to think that they are just one piece. But they're not. The part that fits against your foot and toes is actually called the foot or the heel, and another piece goes on top of your foot and toes called the upper. There are also parts on either side of your leg called sewn panels or gussets. In total there are five parts in a sock--foot, heel, upper, side panel, and cuff.
A warp knitter takes a single length of yarn and weaves it in and out between two sets of needles to create an even, flat fabric. This process can be done with a hand loom, or with a power loom. The most common materials used are wool, cotton, silk, nylon and synthetics. Some fabrics are also made using two or more different materials woven together. Warp knit fabrics tend to be sturdy and well suited for durable clothing items like shirts.
There are many ways to dye yarn. For example, you can use natural dyes that come from plants and animals or synthetic dyes derived from petroleum. The materials you'll need are a pot, dye, water and yarn. To prepare your pot, fill it with water and let it boil until it reaches 180 degrees Fahrenheit (82 degrees Celsius). You will then put the yarn in and let it sit there until it reaches 160 degrees Fahrenheit (71 degrees Celsius). When this happens, remove the yarn quickly so it doesn't overcook and place the pot on a cold surface to cool down. You will then mix in your dye color with tap water or vinegar (depending on what type of dye you're using) until desired color is reached.
