At an average of ~225 g/large pair our Extreme socks are almost double the weight of our Duro Sport socks! These serious socks are warm in the winter and cool in the summer. You need a little extra room in your footware for these beauties. Wool can hold up to 40% of its own weight before it feels wet, so in addition to cold weather, our Extreme socks are suitable for sweaty feet or humid wearing conditions.
And remember - wool is a hostile environment to bacteria, so you can wear these socks for a lot longer than cotton or synthetics before they get skanky!
Our wool is processed with mild detergents - no harsh chemicals for scouring or superwash treatment.
Machine wash in small load on Delicate or Wool cycle. Or hand wash. Dry flat. No bleach.
