Everything the other positive reviews said they'd be

These do have just the right amount of snug yet stretchy and not binding. The toe seam was not described as linked and many claimed as flat or smooth can still bite and dig into toes. So I was concerned that these might not worked. These are indeed smoother than most and not noticeable, especially with a shoe or slipper that has some room in the toebox. These, like all the SmartWool sock I've tried so far, are soft and well constructed. I'm sure they'd do fine in a warm to cold machine wash and delicate dryer setting. To maximize the longevity of stretchiness in the calves, though, I prefer to hang dry. When I can, I also prefer to wash with a mild soap because detergents seem to dry and roughen wools. When I do hand wash, I've found that placing them in the washing machine for a delicate, brief spin doesn't distort their shape and they air dry much faster without towel drying - or having damp towels left over to air dry too.
