Labelled 70% Wool, 26% Nylon, 4% Elastane. Over-the-calf is a misnomer since this sock rises 12" off the floor in Medium & is "on" the lower calf. Nevertheless, it's a great sock. The thickness is greater than the average cotton sock. I wear mine while cycling & walking & they are very comfortable in any temperature I encounter in south FLA. If you have cold feet & need a really warm sock for winter sports this may not be warm enough. Anatomically shaped & labelled "L" or "R" they fit superbly. I would buy this again.

I wear Icebreaker socks all winter long - both indoors and outdoors. Lighter weight ones can be used as a 'base layer' for the feet under other socks as well .. Good fit, never 'saggy' and as they advertize: they don't get smelly.. Some kind of miracle at work there .. !

Well, they truly are 2nds. We bought these in mid-January, and my husband (Man of Many Socks) really liked them, and wore them about 3-4 times a month during the past 4 months, not for any hard use or long length of time. Suddenly, they have developed a full-blown hole at the ball of the foot on the left one, and have gone through the heel and toe of the right one. A disadvantage maybe of the designated "right"--"left"? Or is it cheaper materials? Seems like even seconds ought to last at least up to two dozen wearings. We usually get Smartwool seconds, and they last quite a bit longer; just wanted to try these for fun and the different design.
