Hiking Sock Range Features

Derived from the finest merino wool sourced from select Tasmanian growers with generations of expertise in sheep breeding. This clear provenance ensures that our product range is authentically Australian, reflecting the highest quality standards.

Harnessing the power of PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene), Profilen® boasts an exceptionally low friction coefficient. By incorporating Profilen® yarns into our Merino wool eXtreme range of socks, we minimize friction to prevent blisters and abrasions, guaranteeing a blister-free hiking experience.

Merino Fusion Climayarn® offers a multitude of benefits, including rapid sweat elimination, heat preservation in cold temperatures, and prevention of overheating during warm hikes. This innovative blend seamlessly combines the natural advantages of merino wool with the performance and durability of polypropylene, ensuring optimal comfort and strength on your hiking adventures.
