Pantherella is an English company, which manufactures socks. It was established in 1937 as Midlands Hosiery Mills; Pantherella brand has been used since 1945. All Pantherella socks are made in England. They usually feature hand-linked toes (as far as I know, some exceptions exist). There are mid-calf, over-the-calf and invisible socks. Pantherella uses 70% superfine merino wool (19.5 micron or even less) + 30% nylon; 70% Escorial wool + 30% nylon; 70% silk (2-, 3-ply) + 30% nylon; 70% mercerised cotton + 30% nylon; 75% long staple Egyptian cotton (Giza 86, spun and dyed in Italy, 2-ply, mercerised) + 25% nylon; 80% Sea Island cotton + 20% nylon; 31% Egyptian cotton + 44% linen + 25% nylon; cashmere + nylon blends. 100% cashmere socks are also available. Pantherella socks are knitted by machines with up to 240 needles (but the brand also sells heavy socks made by machines with 96 needles).
