Many manufacturers produce socks made of merino wool. This material is often described as the softest and finest wool on the market. Aside from these qualities, merino wool also offers several advantages over other materials. Here are some of the them.
Hydroscopic and Very Absorbent
One of the unique features of this material is that it can take moisture and vapor away from the skin. It can also absorb moisture up to 30% of of its weight before it feels damp. This is one of the reasons merino wool socks are commonly used by people whose feet sweat a lot such as those with active lifestyles.
Temperature Regulation Capacity
This material can absorb heat four times as much as nylon and about twice as much as polyester. When it's cold, the heat is released through a molecular process. If you are hiking in cold weather, you need a pair of socks that can keep your feet warm. SmartWool Hiking Socks are made of merino wool and can provide thermo-neutral insulation. This feature keeps your feet comfortable in most weather conditions.
