These were the second pair of Cable-Knit socks I've bought for my mother because she liked them so much. They last pair wore out after a month or two of continual use. From my experience the thicker, athletic walking/running socks last much longer, but these are great for their look, and more casual use. As opposed to other SmartWool socks, which my mother has trouble fighting comfortably into some of her boots, these slip in perfectly.
I have not had any problems with mine, but I wash on cold.

The sock does not shrink when washed in warm water or when in the dryer.

Have not laundered them yet but I don't put my other smartwool socks in the dryer- have never had a problem with water temp.

Not much, if any, but I usually wash in cold water. I always use the dryer and they don't shrink.

I've washed them twice in warm wash, cold rinse with no shrinkage.

Nope. I launder mine in warm or cold water, and put in the dryer regular cycle, which their website says is fine. They add that to avoid pilling (too late for some of my smartwool socks), you should turn inside out before drying.

These are made from superwash wool which can be laundered in warm water and machine dried. No shrinking and the convenience of machine laundering.

It might, depending on the amount of agitation, your detergent, whether there are heavy things like denim in the load, and how warm "warm" is in your system. My entire family wears Smartwool socks,; when my thinner ones get mixed in a load done by one the guys, once in a while I get some shrinkage. So far I've been able to re-block the affected sock by tugging it gently back to size. Still, I'd suggest a wash in cold.

No shrinkage observed.

No, but cooking them in the dryer might. They are pretty impervious.

“why don't I ever find large on sale? I wear size 10 shoes and the mediums just are too small. I am a diabetic and have sensitive feet. I have to resort to buying men's, which doesn't provide colors or styles I want. Think about all the tall women with large feet please.”
