Why wear wool socks?
The natural properties of wool absorb and evaporate moisture, keeping your feet and shoes drier while maintaining a comfortable temperature in cool AND warm conditions.
Sockwell believes that wool is the original high performance fiber. Sockwell socks are constructed with custom-crafted, homegrown Merino wool-based yarns like their Fine Merino WoolRayon from Bamboo and Lambswool/Alpaca blends. These distinctive blends combine their commitment to durability, sustainability and performance.
Wool Socks vs. Synthetic Socks
Synthetic socks transport moisture from the foot to the shoe, and tend to promote an environment of greater moisture around the food leading to more bacterial growth and odor.
Wool Socks vs. Cotton Socks
When cotton socks get wet, they stay wet. The moisture stays close to your skin creating an environment that promotes bacteria and blistering, and therefore is uncomfortable in warm and cool temperatures.
Sockwell Socks use wool to naturally:
- Prevent Blisters
- Control Odor
