smartwool socks

SmartWool was established in 1994 in Steamboat Springs, Colorado by two ski instructors. The company produces high quality socks, baselayers, sweatshirts, jackets and accessories. The secret to SmartWool's high performance products is the use of Merino Wool. Merino Wool is soft and comfortable against your skin, it wicks moisture away from your body and it dries quickly. The benefits make merino wool an excellent fabric to wear next to your skin.
