Wool Cycling Socks have been popular for a long time, and these are some of the reasons:
Regulates temperatures – by removing sweat it lowers your temperature, great in the warmer weather. In winter while the fabric continues to wick away moisture from the body transferring it to the Merino wool fibers which absorb moisture creating a insulating effect to help you stay warm.
Odorless – the surface of the wool fiber naturally provides a poor surface for bacterial growth. The bacteria from the moisture can develop and lead to a smelly garment but with the superior wicking ability of wool mildew and therefore odor does not occur.
Durability – the very construction of the wool fiber means that it can bend and stretch easily and therefore last significantly longer than garments made of synthetic fabrics. For most garments just machine wash and hand dry.
Comfort – no longer itchy as they once were years ago, they provide a comfortable fit.
