  • Suitable for hiking, hunting and comfortable chilling
  • Thick terrycloth from Merino Wool
  • 74% Merino Wool, 25% Polyamide, 1% Elastane
  • 23.5 micron
  • Made in Finland

The specialty of these socks is the terrycloth fabric. The inside of the sock is full of small loops, just like on your standard towel, which makes the surface area quite massive and the fabric nice and thick. Thanks to the construction these are quite airy and allow for some airflow, making them quite comfy no matter what the temperature outside is. These work well on their own or coupled with liner socks.

All merino wool in Särmä products is mulesing-free.

Want to know where the merino wool comes from?

Our sock provider Sukkamestarit has joined the NATIVA™system, the purpose of which is to be able to trace the merino wool back to individual sheep farms. Because of this, you will also be able to find out where the wool for all our merino wool Särmä socks comes from.

Starting from August 2020, the packages of new Särmä socks will have a QR code that you can use to trace the source of the merino wool. This will also raise the prices of the socks a bit, but it is a very small thing in comparison how cool this transparency is!

Material and care

74 % Merino Wool, 25% Polyamide, 1% Elastane. Machine wash inside out at 40° C / 104° F, wool program, and wool detergent recommended. Don't leave them in a wet lump after washing. Reshape them gently while still damp and hang to dry. Shrinks about 10% in the first wash, this is already considered in the sizing.

Because of the high wool content, just airing the socks is often enough.

Incredible. Thick and warm, keep your calves warm too. As soon as you take them out of the box you will tell they are bombproof. These don't smell even after being in my crappy low-breathability steel-toed boots after a 10 hour shift, because they use polyamide instead of polyester, and of course the wool works its magic too. Just like advertised.

Of note, they call it "brown" but it's much closer to a "rust" color, not at all like a chocolate bar shade of brown. The product image color is accurate, so there's no misleading advertisement here because who doesn't look at the image before buying something?

Really good socks for tall boots. Very warm and very comfortable and soft. I've been wearing them nearly every day for a few months now and they haven't worn through which is a good thing. I don't know how long they will last but if they last a year I will be happy with the purchase. I will buy another pair when they do wear out. The only problem with them is that the terry knit doesn't last where your feet compress the sock. No idea how you could fix this though.

Näillä mentiin koko viime talvi. Oikeastaan ainoa negatiivinen asia näissä on se, että nämä ovat sen verran paksut, että joissakin jalkineissa - lestistä riippuen - voi tehdä jo hieman tiukkaa, vaikka jalkineen koko muuten olisikin kohdillaan.

I use these when I have to wear formal outfits in winter, they go up to the middle of my knees, keeps my legs warm without having to wear extra underneath.
