Särmä Heavyweight Knee Socks, Merino Wool
Getting a bit chilly, but long johns is too much? The solution is knee socks! These are great with long trousers as well as short ones. The Heavyweight Knee Socks from Särmä are the thickest and warmest of our socks. The material has increased wool content and a solid knit to help them stay up.
- Suitable for hiking, hunting and comfortable chilling
- Thick terrycloth from Merino Wool
- 74 % Merino Wool, 25 % Polyamide, 1 % Elastane
- 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.

Material and care
74 % Merino Wool, 25 % Polyamide, 1 % Elastane. Machine wash inside out at 40 degrees Celsius, wool program and wool detergent recommended. 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.

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?
