Domesticated thousands of years ago in the Pacific Ocean islands for their nutritional properties, bananas are now one of the most cultivated fruits in the world. One of their hidden properties is to be slightly more radiative than common fruits which means bananas emit more radioactive radiation than your everyday apple (but don’t worry, you would have to eat 10,000,000 bananas at once or more than 270 bananas a day for 7 years to die from banana radiation poisoning!).

Worked from the toe up, the Radiative socks showcase two different travelling stitch patterns on a reverse stockinette background. Despite its intricate patterning, these socks keep good elasticity allowing wearing comfort.
