Merino wool isn’t always a fabric that you think of when you think of socks, but this is something that just may have to change. Merino wool comes from the Merino breed of sheep, a type of sheep that has been prized for its high quality wool for generations. By generations, this was a type of wool that was considered the best of the best dating back all the way to the middle ages, and it’s a type of wool that is still prized for its quality today. Merino wool can be made into all types of garments as the benefits of this type of wool are numerous, but it is particularly wonderful in a sturdy pair of socks.
Merino wool socks perform for your feet the same job the wool performed for the sheep before being sheared. The wool is able to help your feet to regulate their own body temperature, keep them dry, resist odors, and be naturally soft; so you have a pair of socks that are warm when you need them to be, cool when you need them to be, and naturally wick away moisture to allow you to prevent athlete’s foot, blistering, and discomfort.
Because the fibers in Merino wool are naturally odor resistant, moisture wicking, and soft, you don’t need to worry about these features lessening the more the socks are washed or worn. Unlike socks with additives, these don’t weaken as time goes on, so you’re left with socks that are as effective and comfortable on day one, as they are after the first month!
A sturdy pair of Merino wool socks can be worn as dress socks, work socks, or athletic socks, due to their ability to offer such a wide variety of benefits. With a natural moisture wicking ability, these are also socks that can be worn comfortably all day without the worry of odor or moisture becoming an issue, and their natural breathability makes them ideal options for those who may be more prone to athlete’s foot growth. With Merino socks, you can reap all of the benefits of the wool of the Merino sheep right where you need them most!
