      The first socks found that go from waders on the river to dress shoes at the club.

      I bought 3 pair, wore them once and immediately went back and bought 9 more pair. Padded where it counts (toes, soles, heels). Great-looking for all occasions.

      Great for hunting and everyday - 4/3/2014
      By: from Austin

      I use these socks for hunting and everyday. They wear great, don't bunch, and there's a color for whatever occasion comes your way. Been using them for a year; no issues with a single sock (they even all come back in pairs from the dryer!).

      great socks….but - 3/29/2014
      By: from lousiville kY

      I love these socks, but the tops start to tear. I understand these comes from pulling them up on the calf. This has happened to several pairs. Please improve if possible

      Super socks - 3/26/2014
      By: from PENNSYLVANIA

      I bought a pack of these to wear for work to replace the heavy cotton socks as a trial and they are the best sock I have worn in years. I just ordered a second pack. I plan on buying some for weekends. The cotton socks would hold moisture and my feet would itch by the end of the day. These cured that problem.

      These socks don't slide down under my instep when I walk long distances, and they keep my feet at comfortable a temperature in both chilly and warm weather. Also, maybe it's my imagination, but they seem to give foot support.

      Best Socks Ever Owned - 3/6/2014
      By: from Orchard Park, N.Y.

      My husband and two adult sons absolutely love these socks. They are extremely comfortable and long wearing. Another plus is that moisture is no longer an issue. We are sold on them.

    An ancient and universal fiber

    One of the oldest and most universal fibers, felted or woven wool has been used for garments and household linens since the earliest civilizations. Wool textiles have been documented as far back as 3,000 B.C.

    The superior quality of wool from merino sheep

    Thousands of years of evolution and selective breeding have resulted in merino sheep capable of producing a super-fine wool fiber. One square inch of merino fleece produces nearly four times as many wool fibers as other breeds of sheep. Interlaced with millions of microscopic air pockets, which act as Nature’s most effective insulator, merino fibers naturally reduce the passage of heat by trapping air between the woolen fibers. Because merino fibers are smaller in diameter and more abundant than in any other wool, they trap more air and keep the wearer naturally more comfortable.

    Versatile, durable and comfortable

    Merino wool keeps the wearer warm in cold weather and cool in hot weather. These remarkable fibers also absorb up to 30% of their own weight in moisture, pulling vapor away from the body so that the wearer stays dry and comfortable regardless of the temperature.

    Fine merino wool is soft, not scratchy!

    Modern technology has made it possible to sort and select only the finest merino fibers. Merino wool has a microscopic diameter—about one-third to one-tenth the thickness of a human hair. The smaller the diameter, the finer, softer, and less scratchy the fabric will be. Lustrous merino wool produces fabric that can be worn next to the skin without discomfort, is soft, and always provides an exceptional hand and distinctive style. Orvis offers a wide range of luxuriously soft merino wool clothing for men.
