My socks are wearing out, why?

Your shoes might not be a good match. You can spend serious money on the best high quality, high-tech socks, but shoes and boots can be sock destroyers.  The wrong shoes will take months or years from the life of a sock.  Like any great union, quality shoes, well-fitted and matched to the correct thickness and material of socks, is the key to getting years of wear out of your socks.  Poorly fitting shoes (too loose or tight), poor quality shoes, hard (non flexible) shoes (with no padding) can rub and wear holes in even the highest quality Merino socks.

You might love to wear socks around the house, especially in winter (we certainly do). But, carpets and rough-textured tiles inside, or splintery flooring and abrasive concrete can easily snag or wear holes in socks over time.

For help matching the right shoe with the right sock please email us at or call us from 9-5pm Monday to Friday on 0394167255.


How do I store my merino clothing?

• Make sure your merino clothing is freshly washed before storing away. We recommend a warm or cool wash on wool cycle and dry your garments on the line (do not tumble dry).

• Fold your merino. Hanging merino for a long period of time can lead to the garment stretching and the formation of bumps along the shoulder where the hanger sits.

Merino should always be stored with a moth deterent such as moth balls, bay leaves, black peppercorns, cedar, lavender and or patchouli.

• Store it away in breathable bags.  Place your folded merino with a moth deterent into a bag for storage. Ideally use cotton or linen bags as these allow air to flow through naturally while plastic can cause garments to sweat in humid conditions.  Storage bags should have proper closures such as a zip to stop moths getting in.

• Store in a cool, dry position to prevent moths and to stop the garment sweating or smelling in humid conditions.
