Merino Wool: GREAT for outdoor socks


Merino Wool is a great natural fiber.  Originally bred in Spain, Merino Sheep have the finest and softest wool of any sheep. Because of it's extremely fine fiber, Merino wool has several great characteristics.

      1. Merino wool is excellent at regulating body temperature, especially when worn against the skin.  It keeps you warm when it’s cold and cool when it’s hot.  It is a GREAT all-year choice.
      2. It is naturally wicking so it has great moisture control characteristics.  Also, it is very breathable. 
      3. Merino wool can absorb up to 30% of its own weight in moisture and still feel dry to the touch. Because of it’s exceptional wicking characteristic, Merino wool is anti-bacterial because it keeps moisture away from your skin so bacteria can’t form because of the lack of moisture.
      4. Is it itchy?  NOPE!  Because Merino wool fibers are so much smaller in diameter, it is much more flexible.  As a result, it does not feel itchy like traditional wool. 
      5. Because it is flexible and soft, Merino wool provides great cushioning for hiking.
      6. Also, because of its greater flexibility, Merino wool causes socks to conform better to the shape of your foot which makes these socks much more comfortable.

Merino wool is a natural, renewable and healthy fiber to be used in socks.  It is comfortable, keeps you dry and controls temperature better than most any other fiber.  It is a perfect choice for outdoor performance socks.
