Please help me find a source for warm heavy wool socks. Boot size 14 or 15.

I used to get good socks from Cabelas, but what they have now appear to be for mall walkers.

Thanks!

Amazon and Google show too many places to list. Just go to Amazon or Google and type in wool socks.

I buy wool ski socks.

Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

Bison wool socks are the warmest youíll ever use, unless you can afford handmade musk ox wool.

Contact your 4H extension...they will put you onto sheep wool spinners and folks that make real wool socks.

I have some friends I hunt with that swear by alpaca wool socks. Said they are the warmest they have ever worn and wick moisture well. Eric

Wanna be - tried that. Too many confusing options. Specific reference would be great.

Jab - I know nothing or nowhere to search or rely on in the ski world. Specific reference?

Turd - they look interesting. May order some to test.

Elk - they look great but are out of my price range since I need more than one pair.

Nessy - you are joking I hope. And yes I have had hand knitted wool socks. They were too soft and became netlike.

Beard - out of my price range.

Ams - second recommendation. I will try the heavy hunters.

I last bought warm thick XXL wool socks about 10 years ago. They were just what I wanted at cabelas in the bargain cave. I bought all they had. They are now all worn out top, bottom, everywhere. They offer nothing similar.

Thanks for the help!

Mark - thanks for giving me the benefit of the doubt!

Beard - that is no more than the darn tough socks. Interesting. Will look further.

Thanks!

Another vote for darn tough. Very comfortable socks. wear only one pair in winter and feet stay warm, and I work outside for hours at a time. Sent three pairs back after 3 years of continual use, they had one small hole in each pair. Waited 3 weeks and now I have a voucher for 81.00 which I used yesterday. Got 2 pairs for work and 2 pairs of the hunters. Had to spend another 33.00, couldn't resist! Impossible to beat!


And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgement!

redhead brand heavy wool socks are decent (at least they were when I purchased mine) and have a lifetime warranty. They were not crazee expensive either.

I bought another two pair of Wigwam F1402 (used to be Ingenius) Smart Wool socks off Ebay last year to supplement some older pairs I bought at Cabelas. I like the Wigwams because they provide good warmth without the bulk.

I bought two pair of Smartwool Hunt X-Heavy Crew socks and two pair of Smartwool Mountaineering X-Heavy Crew socks off Amazon last winter. They are bulkier than the Wigwams but warmer too. I mostly where them when working outside in winter, wear them under my Red Wing 1411 insulated, waterproof work boots that are a size too large to allow for heavier socks.




Smart wool


Eh...wot?
