Merino wool isn’t prone to absorbing odors. Merino wool ability to absorb moisture keeps the skin drier, so the microbes don’t find as much moisture in which to grow. It’s texture and subatomic charge is different from synthetics, so it doesn’t tend to attract odor-producing bacteria.
Your socks are particularly important if you’re going on a hike. You need thick, water-resistant coverings that will help keep your feet dry and prevent blisters. Wool hiking socks are a great choice for hikers new and old.
Merino wool is different than other fibers. Most fabrics feel damp after absorbing less than seven percent of their weight in moisture. Merino wool can absorb up to 30% of its dry weight in moisture. That means your synthetic layers can feel damp an uncomfortable soon after temperatures rise and you begin to perspire.
Meriwool merino wool hiking socks provides a perfect amount of compression for your feet. It also has arch support, and a reinforced heel and toe to ensure maximum comfort and protection for your feet.
Unlike other textiles, Merino wool is a reactive material that adapts to your body's temperature. It regulates so that you are never too hot or cold in any weather.
Originating from Merino sheep from Australia that endure temperatures as low as 5 degrees, Merino wool is a lightweight, naturally warm fiber.
Unlike regular wool fiber that is heavy, coarse, and itchy, Merino wool actually has thinner, finer fibers that make it soft to the touch and cause no irritation to the skin.
Merino’s fibers are much smaller in diameter than other wool which gives the fibers the ability to bend softly with increased flexibility. The result? Soft to the touch.
My personal review is based on my experiences during two deployments and one training exercise.
I live and work in Hawaii where my daily footwear is generally hiking or utility boots. I also travel often to Japan, where summers can be terribly hot and humid and my daily footwear is generally hiking or tactical boots. In these conditions, SOCKS MATTER. Even for someone like myself, who doesn't have much of any body odor and I'm certainly not prone to foot odor, if you play with low-quality poly-cotton blend socks in these kinds of boots, your feet WILL STINK.
At about $5/pair these are good and comfortable socks especially for anyone like me that struggles with feet that go from hot and sweaty to ice cold when I wear cotton socks. These socks have weak seams that pull apart from each other but maybe they will be okay in the long run. I also own better named socks at about $20+/pair and the difference is vast. But, at one fifth of that cost these cheaper socks are a fair value.
OH MY GOSH!!! I bought these socks when I started wearing 8" hiking/military spec boots for the added ankle support.
Soft comfortable fit having neuropathy in my feet they are constantly freezing even if outside in the 100's. These help reduce the feeling of cold feet, cushioned them to the ruff terrain of LA sidewalks. Have nine other pairs of different thickness and each fit well and do their job above and beyond. In cold weather you shouldn't have sweaty feet, I have yet to have sweaty feet or even damp feet since I started buy these wool socks.
Used during a snowshoeing and winter camping trip...found them very comfortable.
C est exactement ce que je cherchais. Douceur et confort.
