Big weave hurts to wear, needs liner

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Woodswoman from Ely, MN on Sunday, April 01, 2012
Walking 4 miles with these socks without a thin liner sock made my heels hurt. The weave is too big, yet the holes are covered with the angora wisps. The little angora fibers do not pad the sock. Holding the sock up to light shows how big the weave is- seems like 1/8" holes. Walking on the socks presses this weave into the skin, like walking on nylon cord mesh. So it needs a liner. However, it is almost impossible to find 100% wool socks. Angora is warmer tan wool, and warm when it is wet. So these are warmer than 100% wool socks.
