Merino Wool is finer than traditional wool with tiny overlapping scales that case each fiber; these scales are hydrophobic (water repellent). Inside it's a different story, the fiber core is hydrophilic (highly absorbent).
Merino is therefore a wicking fiber and can absorb and release 10 times more moisture than synthetics. Each fiber can absorb up to one third of its own weight in moisture without feeling clammy or wet to the touch. In SealSkinz socks, the moisture is then wicked through the membrane to keep you feeling warm and dry. Merino wool has the ability to absorb and release moisture to cool or warm, regulating temperature. It also has excellent anti-microbial properties, helping reduce odor build up inside your socks. The socks are made from 87% nylon and 13% elastane with a hydrophilic membrane that is 51% merino wool, 30% polyester, 15% acrylic, 3% elastodiene, and 1% elastane. Socks are available in multiple sizes.
