In which conditions should you wear full-height socks?
These socks are recommended for static hunting, moderately intensive use and very regular use. These socks will help to keep your feet warm, particularly if you are a Gun on a driven shoot, shoot game birds or shoot from a hide in the autumn. Since we all feel the cold differently, we recommend these socks for temperatures below 0°C, but this can vary from one person to another
What materials are these socks made of?
These socks are made of knitted Merino wool with large plush loops on the entire foot. The shin and calf areas are reinforced with polyamide thread for greater durability as well as the front and back of the foot. Finally, the entire sock is elasticated for excellent support when out walking in all types of boots.
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!
