Things You Need to Know When Buying Merino Wool Boot Socks

We welcome you to this article; if you’re here, we’re guessing you want to get some awesome Merino wool boot socks, or you want to know what the heck they are and what you should know about them in case you do go for them. Well, either way, we will try our best to provide you with the most authentic information regarding shopping for them on – your premium source for socks and underwear.  So without further ado, here we go.

They Should be 100%, Merino Wool Socks

When you are planning on buying woolen socks of the Marino variant, you gotta make sure they’re 100% Merino wool socks. Merino wool comes from Merino sheep from Australia and New Zealand; if it’s anywhere else, you’re not getting the right stuff – btw VillainInside only sells the real deal. Now back to wool and sock, you need to ensure that it’s not a combination of fabrics, being part Merino and part wool from some other sheep.


They Should be Competitively Priced

Okay, we need to tell you that Merino wool is expensive, so the socks will be too. However, that doesn’t mean that you should not get a fair price as far as the Merino socks go. It would be best to buy from us to ensure you get your socks at the most competitive rates. Regarding pricing, you’re probably wondering, hold your sheep err horses – why should I pay extra for some wool socks from down under? Well, you’re right, so, before we move on to anything else, we should tell you that Merino Wool Socks are:

  • Hypoallergenic (less chance of you being or getting allergic to them)
  • Sweat-wicking (they keep your feet dry and comfy)
  • Anti-bacterial ( they are resistant to bacterial growth on them)
  • Odor-resistant (they ensure they don’t smell and neither do your feet)
  • Thick and Soft (they have anti-friction and slight shock-absorbing qualities for extra comfort)

We know you want to say, “Shut up, and take my money,” but please bear with us a couple of more paragraphs, pretty please.


We have other Men’s Merino Wool Socks As Well

We have the crew sock variety, but we also have other men’s merino wool socks as well, such as the no-show variant and the ankle-sock option. If you’re interested in staying comfy down under your navel (no pun intended), we also have underwear made of Merino wool too. You might be wondering how this might be important. Any shop you buy from should have other variations of Merino wool products to ensure authenticity and trustworthiness – so, now you know.


Caring for Your Merino Socks

Merino socks are one of the most long-lasting articles of clothing out there. If you want to ensure that the socks you paid for last you as long as possible, then we suggest you follow the washing and drying instructions for them. For example, generally, you should turn your socks inside out; you can machine wash or hand wash them. However, wash them gently in cool or warm water – avoid hot water as it may cause them to shrink. You can use soap; avoid bleach or fabric softeners as they can harm the wool fibers. When drying them, air-drying is recommended and have them laid out flat on a surface, not hung to dry as the shape might get distorted. Also, please note some wools can get damaged if tumble-dried in a machine. So always make sure to read the washing instructions.
