We use a paper from responsible sources for the sock packaging. We are conscious that our regular customers know exactly what they want and are quite happy to have their socks without the packaging. If you would like your socks in this way, please see the order form for details.
Organic and Welfare
Although Corrymoor goats are managed in accordance with exacting Soil Association Standards and the mohair from these goats is Organic, the socks are not sold as Organic because mohair from other suppliers is used. However, the world of British Angora Goats is not huge and Corrymoor only buy from suppliers who really care for their animals and look after them well.
The NATURAL coloured socks are unbleached and undyed, so all you get is the natural slightly creamy-white colour of the mohair. Our other socks are made and dyed in the UK using processes which are strictly controlled by UK and EEC regulations.
Corrymoor Socks are knitted on traditional machinery in the UK.
Corrymoor Farm is a family run organic farm in South West UK. They have been breeding champion Angora Goats since 1988 and have been making top quality mohair socks since 1992 and farm the pastures and woodland to the exacting Organic Standards of the Soil Association. The farm is part of the “Red Tractor Scheme” of farm quality assurance and the goats have high herd health status.
The animals enjoy the “Five Freedoms of Animal Welfare”:
- Freedom from Hunger and Thirst
- Freedom from Discomfort
- Freedom from Pain, Injury or Disease
- Freedom to Express Normal Behaviour
- Freedom from Fear and Distress
