Merino Wool Makes for Great Socks

merino woolFor years, I have heard about Merino wool socks, but they have been one of those things that I haven’t got around to stocking up in any quantity.  Well this year a friend sent me several pairs of Merino wool socks and I love them.

Merino wool comes from the merino sheep and is considered one of the best for warmth and wear.  The following is what Wikipedia has to say about Merino wool.

  • Merino is excellent at regulating body temperature, especially when worn against the skin. The wool provides some warmth, without overheating the wearer. It draws moisture (sweat) away from the skin, a phenomenon known as wicking.
