Cotton socks are great for those who want to keep warm and dry.
But are they made from real egg?
Is this true?
In a new video, researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have built a pair of socks that mimic the texture and look of real egg yolks, and it’s been dubbed the Cotton Yolk Protein-Rich Egg Sock.
In the video, you can see the researchers using a computer algorithm to find the protein-containing egg yolk in cotton socks.
The researchers used this protein to make the sock’s outer shell.
In order to do this, they first soaked the sock in a solution of a synthetic protein called DHA, a fatty acid derived from a fish protein.
The protein then coated the sock with a polymer gel to make it soft.
Once the sock was coated, the researchers applied a thin layer of egg yam starch, which has the same texture and color as real egg, onto the sock, making the sock soft.
To create the eggy texture, they coated the egg yams in another polymer gel and used a heat-resistant adhesive that allowed the egg to stick to the sock.
The scientists then used a machine to remove the egg and put it back in the sock to create a more traditional egg-yolk sock.

The study, published in the journal Nature Materials, was led by a team led by Andrew W. Davis.
Davis and his team have been developing a wearable, wearable technology to replace the plastic shell of socks.
He said they wanted to build a technology that mimics the feel and feel of real eggs and that was easy to use.
“We had the materials available that we could just use,” Davis said.
“But we wanted something that we were able to scale and that could be used for a whole range of applications.”
Davis said the team’s next step is to find a better manufacturing process to create the socks.
“That’s a whole different technology than what we are doing now,” he said.
