I know, I know. It's so stinking hot outside and I'm talking about warming up feet. My house always seems to be cold which makes my feet cold. Sure I could throw some socks on, but pretty much all I own are ankle socks and they don't keep my feet too warm. So, when I was approached about the Heat Holders it was perfect timing.
I can't sleep at night with cold feet. I have to sleep with an electric blanket at night because my room is pretty much cold at night no matter what time of year it is. Sleeping with ankle socks is kinda uncomfortable to me, but these don't bother me one bit. In fact, when I'm not wearing them, the kiddo steals them from me.
I'll show y'all what I'm talking about. Also, let me apologize for my poor phone pics of this, I had to open them as soon as they came in to warm my toes up. Click to enlarge any picture.

Ever wonder why you aren’t getting enough sleep at night? Do you remain restless for hours tossing and turning, trying to drift off? Many of us suffer with this problem, but few know that this could be simply rectified by warming up your feet at bed time – a fantastic new product from the shores of the UK called Heat Holders, hold the key to swift sleep!
Heat Holders are seven times warmer than normal socks and are designed to keep you warm in all weather!
Research by the team at the Centre for Chronobiology in Basel, Switzerland has stated that,
‘ The degree of dilation of blood vessels in the skin of the hands and feet, which increases heat loss at these extremities, is the best physiological predictor for the rapid onset of sleep.’
The ongoing studies from the Chronobiology Center show that as you approach the threshold of sleep, you shift warmth from the center of your body towards your extremities. By doing this the blood vessels in your feet and hands are widened and your brain releases the sleep hormone melatonin. Melatonin switches the body’s sleep mechanism on, allowing you to get to sleep more rapidly. Scientists at the center have discovered that if your feet are cold, you struggle to drift off to sleep;
‘If the extremities (hands and feet) are cold, inhibiting the free flow of blood, the sleep hormones fail to kick in and restless insomnia prevails.’
Speeding up the sleeping process by wearing warm socks, such as Heat Holders ultimate thermal socks means your feet are warm from the minute you get into bed, melatonin is released earlier and you fall asleep much faster. The Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience (NIN) reiterated these points in their March 2010 study;
‘Sleep onset was accelerated by warm and neutral bed socks after lights off and correlated to the increase in foot temperature.’
With a tog rating of 2.34, Heat Holders provide a practical and economical alternative to layering socks. A TOG rating (Thermal Overall Grade) is a recognized measure of a textiles thermal ability. The higher the tog rating, the better the product is able to keep you warm. The unique patent pending extra long looped thermal pile which is unique to Heat Holders has been newly developed.
This innovative knitting technology locks in warm air, holding this closer to the skin, keeping feet warmer for longer. The soft brushed inner adds comfort and softness where feet need it the most. Their gentle grip prevents rubbing or discomfort that may be experienced from a sock with a lower tog rating. Furthermore the advanced insulating yarn created for Heat Holders provides high performance insulation and superior moisture wicking abilities.
Struggling to drift off to sleep is now a thing of the past for the entire family with Heat Holders ultimate thermal socks. To find out more information on Heat Holders product range and to read more about the benefits of warm feet visit www.heatholders.com
