Description 

This is the true classic wool athletic sock. If you're looking for the same sock that you used to call a "sweat sock" then this is the sock for you. It's not a sock for young whipper-snappers. These are the classic socks from the 50's and 60's (the good old days), that people have been buying for 60 years. 60% Wool, 40% Nylon.

This sock is proudly made in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, USA (just like it was 50 years ago).

This sock is relatively thick by modern sock standards, but is still a medium thick sock (as most modern socks are very thin these days). The natural wool provides a kind of cushioning and springiness that many modern fibers just can't reproduce.

Sockspert Opinions

John's Thoughts

There are times when something works and you just don't want to change. This sock is very much that way. It isn't modern in any way, it is the sock you might have worn a few decades ago. In fact, this sock is made in the exact same mill in Sheboygan Wisconsin. Same knitting machines too.

The term "sweat sock" isn't often used now. But when these socks were building a reputation, that is exactly what they were called. They are made of 60% wool and 40% nylon, just like the old days.

While these are considered a white sock, they're not white like a cotton sock. Since they're made of natural wool, the appearance is more of a natural white than a true white.
