Very lightweight w/only 68% Merino wool. Even at under six bucks a pair they aren't as thick as a pair of JCP cotton golden toes.
I consider this low a percentage of Merino wool as deceptive. The claim above the bar code is, Medium Hiker Quarter.
The full length, Light Hiker, #2796N-04-M/L , was six bucks, also 68%/30%/2%.
The Trekker socks, #6063U-04-M/L , at 7 1/2 clams was 83%/16%/1% and these are truly a thick middleweight Merino wool sock though in full length.
I would've been better served buying two more trekker pair, rolling down the top and forgetting about these LIGHTWEIGHT 1/4 socks.

These socks feel great, and so probably deserve 5 stars. I've never tried the 1/4 length before, and I just don't like it. It's not the sock's fault; I'm just too used to full length socks. That said, from the ankle to the toe they are wonderful.

The Goodhew 1/4 Crew Hiking socks- Merino Wool, Midweight, Medium cushion (For Men and Women) Are ok socks, but not perfect. I wore a pair and did lots of walking, and they are comfortable and warm/cooling. If I had paid the regular price for them, I'd have to say these are not made as well as some others at the same pricing scale. The reason for my opinion, is after laundering them, the darning shows some strings, or threading, where others at this price remain smooth. This is not necessarily a bad thing, because they seem to be holding together well, but I wonder about how long they'll last looking good, or before they'll develop holes.
