Purple Turtle Tick Socks should be worn like a second pair of socks inside your boots and they pull right up over your trousers and above your knees. They can then be secured with a toggle and elastic draw cord both above and below your knees, thereby creating a continuous tick proof barrier.
Purple Turtle Tick Socks are constructed from a thin but tough synthetic fabric, making them perfect for trekking through wet conditions that ticks love. They’re usually available in several different colours and sizes and they’re supplied with a draw-string bag for storage.
Size Guide – the right size for you depends on your height, not your shoe size:
– Short – approx 20″ (51cm) long – suitable for children and adults up to about 5′ 6″ (1.68m) tall
– Medium – approx 22″ (56cm ) long – suitable for adults between about 5′ 6″ and 5′ 10″ (1.68m to 1.78m)
– Long – approx 24″ (61cm) long – suitable for adults taller than about 5′ 10″ (1.78m)
The size isn’t critical – it’s just a bit of a trade off between comfort and ease of use. The shorter they are, the more easily they stay up, although they may catch a bit at the back of your knees. The longer they are, the more likely they are to slip down a bit, but they’re less likely to catch at the back of your knees.
