We stock a range of technical walking and trekking socks for cool and cold conditions made by our friends at Advanced Technical Sock Industries made with Merino wool. These socks are export quality.
WHAT IS MERINO WOOL?
The secret to Merino wool’s success lies in its exceptionally fine fibres, which make it the softest wool available
Being so extremely fine, they are able to bend far more than other coarser wool fibres. It also has higher elasticity that helps prevent garments made with Merino wool from losing their shape.
Because Merino wool is made out of keratin, much like human hair, it is completely biodegradable. When it is eventually disposed of, it will breakdown, decomposing to release vital nutrients back into the soil, acting like a fertiliser.
