49% Merino Wool, 48% Nylon, 3% Elastane
The fibre composition details percentage by weight of each fibre contained in the sock. Technical socks often have a proportion of synthetic fibres such as nylon and elastane, as these provide durability and stretch to the sock. For a technical wool sock, you should expect around a 50% wool content.
Merino Wool is a naturally technical fibre; hence why we love it at the Sockmine. Luxuriously soft, it naturally regulates both temperature and moisture, meaning that not only does it keep you warm, but its breathability allows sweat and moisture to be wicked away from the skin. Amazingly, it is also 100% sustainable, renewable and biodegradable. The Merino wool we use is Oeko-Tex® and Bluesign® certified, ensuring only consumer-safe products are used, and that the environment is being looked after throughout the manufacturing process.

Additional cushioning underfoot is used to increase the comfort and the durability of the sock. The terry loop pile fabric is constructed so This is perfect for when you’re up on your feet for an extended period of time and needing that extra level of support.
Thick cushioned fabric is placed in selected impact zones for added comfort and protection in those key areas. Terry loops give the fabric a padded feel that absorbs impact, softening the blows on your foot.
Reinforced Heel and Toe

Through reinforcing key impact zones with synthetic yarns, we can increase the durability of the sock making it perform better for longer.
Comfort Linked Toe Seam
Bulky seams have no place in a sock designed for performance. The comfort linked toe seam is flat, so causes no irritation to the tops of your toes.
These socks are ergonomically designed to your left and right feet, providing you with the correct technical features in the correct place on the foot. Just make sure you get them the right way round!
Difference between Ski and Snowboard Socks
Unlike some, we recognise that skiers and snowboarders want very different things from their socks. We have therefore created the Ultimate ski sock and the Ultimate Snowboard sock to support the different ways skiers and snowboarders move. Our skiing socks have extra padding around the ankle and shin area for the constant leaning forward into your boots, and the side to side of carving up the slopes. However our snowboarding socks have extra padding on top of the foot for comfort and protection from the binding straps. Padding is also reinforced in the heel and toe areas once again for durability and comfort whether you are on your heels or your toes.
