Watch your Merino content

I thought I was getting a higher Merino content on these. If they were named by the primary fiber
these would be acrylic socks. "Merino Wool" socks are often as low as
8%. So these are about 16%, eh. Not a bad sock, but I will be surprised it they match what I am used to in
60% or better in Merino wool socks. They are rather stretchy, and a bit big for size 10 in the 9-12 sizing.
Washing and dryer drying didn't make any difference. Definitely a bit thicker than mid-weight, a little bunchy
in shoes. At a good price, I will see how the 5 pairs do, not worth sending them back. So far, they do not seem to
demonstrate the downside of acrylic, so maybe the blend will be OK. I'm sold on the benefits of Merino and
just a little disappointed in shopping comparable socks, I missed the lower content in these.
