Known for its ability to draw moisture away from the body, acrylic is a popular material for socks, as well as other clothing items.

Garments made from acrylic can be washed or dry-cleaned.

Generally, you should machine wash, using a warm-water setting.

Add a fabric softener during the final rinse. Acrylics are heat-sensitive, so tumble dry at a low temperature.

To avoid wrinkling, remove from the dryer as soon as dry.When hand washing is required, as with delicate items, use warm water and a mild detergent.

Rinse and gently squeeze out the water, smooth out the garment and dry on a rustproof hanger. Lay jumpers and knits flat to dry with a clean towel underneath.

For ironing, use a moderately warm iron.
