In which conditions should you wear full-height socks?
These socks are recommended for high-intensity and frequent use.
If you hunt in aggressive cover for several hours a week, for example when woodcock hunting, or as a beater on a drive hunt, if you have to make your way through brambles, jump and run after the dogs, or if you hunt without making any physical compromises, then these socks will keep you comfortable at all times.
What materials are these socks made of?
These socks are made using 70% Thermocool thread which limits foot heat and wicks away perspiration, and 30% Merino wool in the body of the sock to prevent odours. The top has an integrated cushioned area to draw perspiration away from the foot to keep feet feeling dry. The underside of the socks is knitted with a thread that prevents blisters. Finally, polyamide reinforcements have been incorporated around the entire sock.
The advantages of Merino wool
Merino wool regulates body temperature and wicks away moisture. These qualities make it ultra-comfortable and soft. This material also naturally limits the growth of odour-causing bacteria. In other words, after a physical effort and heavy perspiration, merino wool prevents evaporation and helps to maintain body temperature by absorbing most body moisture. This limits the unpleasant chilling effect.
Why should you choose a sock size suited to your foot size?
It is important to choose a sock size that fits your foot to avoid any extra folds: if the sock is too big, there will be too much material around your foot and you will not be comfortable; if the sock is too small, it will be "dragged" down towards the inside of the shoe, which may cause rubbing, pain or even blisters by the end of your outing.
How to wash your Merino wool socks
We recommend you wash these Merino wool socks in the washing machine at 30°, on a normal cycle, preferably with a liquid detergent. Dry flat, NEVER in a tumble dryer, unless you want to shrink them by a size or two!
