52% Nylon, 31% Polyester (COOLMAX®), 16% Merino Wool, 1% 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.
Developed in 1986, Coolmax® is a technical fibre engineered to keep the wearer dry. The fibre’s unique cross section absorbs and pulls moisture away from the skin, transporting it down tiny grooves in its surface. Once the moisture spreads across a larger surface area, the rate of evaporation of that moisture increases. This effect helps keep your feet dry and cool. Coolmax® allows us to create socks that are soft and breathable; perfect for optimal sports performance in warmer weather.

An arch support is a band of elasticated fabric located half way down the foot. It is designed to improve the fit of the sock around your arch, allowing the fabric to closely follow the contours of your foot.
A slingshot support is a Y-shaped elasticated band located around the heel. It helps secure the heel, preventing it from slipping into your shoe during activities.
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
The heel and toe of the sock is reinforced with additional synthetic yarns, which increase the durability of the sock making it perform better for longer.
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.
