MERINO GUMBOOT SOCK
A specialist sock that stays on and stays up in gumboots. Elasticated grips around the ankle and arch keep the sock in place while extra strength and reinforcement in the heel, sole and toe areas gives the durability needed. For those wanting reliability, this sock is a must.
Merino fibres are extremely fine, enabling them to bend far more than traditional, coarser wool fibres. This makes Merino wool feel soft and luxuriously gentle next to your skin
Merino fibres can absorb large quantities of moisture vapour then move it away to evaporate into the air. So Merino wool clothing is extremely breathable and less prone to clamminess making it a perfect material for socks.
WARM AND COOL
In contrast to synthetics, Merino is an active fibre that reacts to changes in body temperature. So it helps you stay warm when the weather is cold, and cool when the weather is hot.
In contrast to synthetics, Merino wool can absorb moisture vapour which means less sweat on your body. Merino wool even absorbs the odours from sweat, which are then released during washing.
You are safer in Merino wool because it is flame retardant and doesn't melt or stick to the skin.
Merino wool is an entirely natural and renewable fibre.
Merino wool is grown year-round by Merino sheep, consuming a simple blend of water, air, sunshine and grass.
When Merino fibre is disposed of, it will naturally decompose in soil in a matter of years, slowly releasing valuable nutrients back into the earth.
Every year Merino sheep produce a new fleece, making Merino wool a completely renewable fibre source.
Nylon is a very strong, versatile, hard-wearing fiber. Socks made of nylon can be thin and silky or bulky and highly elastic. Nylon is often used with other fibers in blends to give added stretch or to improve durability.
Used with other fibers, it provides elasticity, comfort and a close fit, which makes it a common choice in socks to help them stay up and in the arch and ankle to provide extra support.
This type of Merino Wool Socks are 80% Merino Wool, 17% Nylon & 3% Elastane
