John's Thoughts

Do you feel that merino wool is for sissies? Do you feel the need to have a classic pair of standard itchy wool socks? If you answered yes to either of the previous questions, than you have found your sock. Made of classic ragg wool, these will give you the look and feel of an old school pair of wool socks. These socks have a classic wool thickness too. The entire sock is made of nice thick classic wool. and so it should come as no surprise that these socks are very warm.

The most interesting style trend is making these socks hip again. Just a few weeks ago someone sent me a page cut out of a famous men’s magazine (starts with G and ends with Q). The article states that “rugged ragg socks are required footwear this fall.” Couldn’t have said it better myself. Buy early, buy often!

 

FAQ

Q. Are these socks made of Merino Wool and if not, are they itchy?
A. These socks are NOT made from Merino Wool. While they aren't as itchy as many old wool socks, they are considered "itchy" when compared to a much softer Mernino Wool. If you are sensitive to traditional wool, we suggest you choose a Merino Wool sock or the new Cotton Ragg Sock called the Wigwam Cypress.
