Updated for added warmth without bulk, the Winter Wool adds terry loop padding to the footbed and up over the toes for ultra-fine merino comfort against the elements. The strategically placed padding keeps the socks comfortable in a cycling shoe without feeling bulky. Nylon is incorporated for durability and longevity in high wear areas, with a touch of elastane for a perfect fit.
Fabric: 58% Merino Wool / 35% Nylon / 6% Elastodiene / 1% Elastane

Caring for your cycling gear properly will extend its life and maintain its performance, fit and quality. It’s important to consider these instructions carefully. While we stand behind the quality of our apparel, not adhering to these instructions will void our warranty against manufacturing & defects.
We strongly recommend washing your new gear before wearing it. You’ll find that your apparel will soften, and fit & comfort will improve after washing - especially with bibs & shorts.
Machine wash cool, 86°F (30°C) with like colors: Cooler temps maintain better longevity for your apparel. Like colors, especially lights, will remain more vibrant when washed with like colors.
Use mild detergent. Do not bleach or dry clean: Strong detergents & bleach can break down the fibers and elastane in the garment, dramatically reducing its life.
Close all fastenings: this goes also for other garments mixed in with your cycling apparel. Velcro closures or clasps can catch on stitching or trim and damage your garments.
Lay flat to dry. Do not tumble dry: Do not put your cycling apparel in the dryer. Even on low heat. Don’t do it. Heat can damage fabric, elastic and heat transfer logos very easily. Lycra (Elastane) is used throughout our garments to provide compression and support and is susceptible to damage from heat and can irreparably damage your apparel.

I race CX in the Chicago Winter and train in temps down into the mid 20’s. Cold digits are always a challenge. For me, socks that are too thick restrict blood flow and result in initial comfort and longer term numbness along with very cold feet. These socks are very warm without being overly thick - this allows for good circulation and the required room in the shoe for warmth maintenance - this for me is achieved through good circulation of blood throughout the foot combined with room around the toes for air circulation. This results in proper insulation and maintenance of foot temps for longer periods than with either very heavy or thin socks. All of this to simply say that these socks have absolutely been the best option for me. Enough cush and thickness for comfort without being burdensome, love these socks - I am on my third set of two.
Love the sock. It fits well, feels comfy and keeps my toes warm on my bike rides. Love the small touch of color at the top on the grey ones. Looks pro. Highly recommended.
Great fit. Not too bulky. Great performance
