Särmä Short Merino Socks
Ever since we started selling our own merino socks we have had people asking for a lightweight ankle high version. Well, you get what you ask for! These low lightweight socks are excellent for hot weather.
- Light summerweight short socks
- 50 % merino wool, 45 % polyamide and 5 % elastane
The heel has a fitted Y-construction to keep the sock in place even without the high shaft.
Material and care
Material 50 % merino wool, 45 % polyamide and 5 % elastane. Wash in 40 degrees celcius. The polyamide is added to the mix for wear resistance and the elastane guarantees a snug fit.
The joys of merino wool
Wool is a great material. It will keep you warm even when wet and does not soak in nasty smells or dirt easily, which also makes it pretty hygienic. Now, Merino wool has two additional benefits compared to normal wool; it's finer, which means it's also warmer per gram, and feels very comfortable against the skin, not rough and itchy at all.
These are made from mulesing free merino wool!

I just switched from all poly gear to merino wool after years. I've been wearing these products everyday for a month now and am very impressed. There is slight pilling but to be expected, but the description is right these products do not take in smells very easily, just take care of your stuff. Varusteleka is PURE GOLD!
