The Finnish army boots socks are real good, but make them out of quality merino wool and they get even better! Just like our army issue socks, but a little better in every way. The natural moisture wicking properties of merino wool make these a viable option for around the year use.
Merino wool makes for a perfect base layer, to minimize chafing you can wear thinner socks under these, for example our standard merino socks. In cold weather conditions you could wear a pair of thicker socks over these. Layering socks makes life better, it minimizes chafing and if you've chosen your materials correctly (can't go wrong with wool) double layered socks will not feel uncomfortably hot or too damp even in hot weather.
The footbed side is terrycloth. This means the sock won't slide and wrinkle when worn.
Material 64 % merino wool, 36 % polyamide. Wash in 40 degrees Celsius. The polyamide is added to the mix for wear resistance, you can march countless miles before wearing these out. The sock shrinks about 10 % in the first wash. This is accounted for in the sizing
Merino wool is moisture wicking, quick drying and self-rinsing. It's also machine-washable, but washing is usually unnecessary - wool cleans itself. Machine wash in 40 degrees celsius when needed. Don't leave them in a wet lump after washing. Reshape them gently while still damp. When not in use a good shake and airing outside will magically cleanse the wool. You only need to wash merino wool if you see stains or the clothing starts to smell really bad. This usually requires lots of continuous use without airing.
And oh yes, this stuff is mulesing free!
