The history of socks
It’s hard to believe that the history of socks goes back more than 2 millennia, especially considering how often they are being made today. Cave dwellers would use matted goat hair in their quest for warmth and comfort; but at this point in time (and maybe due to an oversight), there were no toe-split nor did these early peoples have any idea about what was coming next.
Over all these years socks have been changing, especially in the material.
In the early days, people would use different kinds of animal fur to create socks such as matted goat hair. However, nowadays, people can use all sorts of materials to create socks like cotton, wool, and many more. Plus, with the help of technology, toe-split is no longer an issue as well!
