We Only Use Three Ingredients in Our Socks
Merino Wool, Nylon, and Lycra® are the only yarns we knit into our socks. A pure Merino Wool sock would not have the elasticity to hold its fit, and Nylon strengthens wear zones. The list is simple, but it’s how we do it that knits a longer lasting sock.
Some Instincts Aren't Natural
There are more than a few misconceptions about wool, or at least Merino Wool.
While we knit, finish, and package all our socks in Vermont, our materials come from all over the globe – Merino Wool primarily from New Zealand. For whatever reason (it’s the environmental conditions) the sheep in New Zealand are still the best. They aren’t the only ones, however, and our Tactical socks are Berry Amendment Compliant, meaning they are completely sourced in the U.S.A.
