Feel scratchy & like they're made of polyester

Verified Buyer Reviewed by ocngrl007 from Wilmington, NC on Saturday, January 17, 2015
Literally, all I own are Smartwool & Icebreaker socks (all bought on STP); crews, mid-calf, ankle, etc. I wear them daily, wash in gentle cycle and line dry. I LOVE all of them, especially the PhD with the cushion on the heel.
These socks, however, are a different animal in terms of how they feel. They're lighter and thinner, which is what I wanted - thought they'd be good to wear with some new suede sneakers I've bought for spring. I'm just not loving this variation of merino - it's almost slippery, like they're made of polyester, no softness to them at all. I'm still going to keep a pair and I may eventually retract this review, but for me, the feel of these on my feet is not a pleasant one. I'm going to assume as far as quality and wear, they're up to par with the other SmartWool socks I have.
