I’m finally ready for winter – I received my shipment of 9 pairs of knee high wool socks.
I wear knee high wool socks all winter long, they keep me much warmer in our chilly house. If you’ve never had the joy of wearing a pair of knee high wool socks on a cold day, give it a shot, I guarantee you’ll become a convert! It’s amazing how much warmer they are than mid-calf socks.
Most of my socks were purchased years ago and they all wore out last winter. For most of the winter I had toes poking out some socks and no wool left in the heels/bottoms of others. Needless to say, they’re not as warm that way!
For many years I’ve been a big fan of Smartwool socks, but my most recent pairs have worn out quickly. I have found that the less wool and more nylon in the socks the quicker they wear out. I purchased a few pairs of Smartwools last week and then noticed that the percentage of wool has been lowered once again. Thus they went back to the store and I started my search for socks with more wool.
Lucky for me, I found some at REI, and double lucky for me I had a $20 gift card. Now I’m stocked up on socks again for a few years. I’ll be warming and toasty when I get up in the morning and while I’m outside feeding chickens and snowshoeing. Nothing beats knee high wool socks!
