Best wool socks ever
on December 23, 2012
In the last 6 months, I have purchased no less than 5 or 6 different brands of wool socks. These are the hands-down winner. My feet are always cold, yet perspire, resulting in clammy feet. These socks keep my feet warm AND dry. I wear them when its cold and also when it's warm outside, both with great comfort.
I absolutely love them, and have already purchased more. Having only purchased cotton socks my entire adult life, I wasn't prepared for the comfort of wool on your feet. These socks are medium density on the calf and ankle section, and also padded sole and toe which is slightly more dense. They fit well in both my boots and every-day sneakers.
This brand does cost a bit more than the other brands of wool socks I purchased, however the size medium fit my 7 shoe size feet the the best. They wash and dry with no shrinkage, and I have had no issues with the socks stretching out, as I have had with inferior brands. If I had to look for a fault, it is that they are not angora-soft, but then this is wool, not rabbit fur. I have sensitive skin, and although I would not describe them as scratchy, they are certainly soft enough. I also appreciate that they seem to be able to stay up without cutting off my circulation.
I would certainly recommend these to anyone looking for quality, warm, breathable, easy care, padded socks.
