You can ask just about anybody who lives an active lifestyle on the jobsite, on the trails, or on the ski slopes, and they'll all tell you the same thing - Merino wool socks are the most comfortable, most durable socks available! Plus, they offer other benefits like odor resistance, moisture wicking, and temperature regulation.
Let's go over some of the benefits of Merino wool socks here:
- Comfort - silky-smooth, soft, and not itchy
- Durability - flexible, effective in heat or cold, long-lasting fibers
- Odor-Resistance - prevents sweat and bacteria build-up
- Temperature Regulation - naturally-insulating in cold, breathable in heat
- Moisture-Wicking - absorbs & releases moisture, keeping you dry
Plus, on top of all of these benefits, Merino wools socks are often able to be sourced from wool that is environmentally friendly, sustainable, and safe for the sheep that produce the wool.
