Hiking Socks

Womens Merino Wool Hiking Socks

Wilderness Wear have been designing and manufacturing merino wool hiking socks in Melbourne since 1989. Our extensive knowledge & experience has led us to create a large range that will cover your needs from day walks in the Blue Mountains to multi-day epics like the Overland Trail in Tasmania.

Unlike other brands our range features a higher % of merino wool and our merino is 100% Australian and is blended with nylon and lycra for durability. We’ve also created a fusion range which features Climayarn® technology a blend of 80% Climayarn® (3:2 ratio – Pure Australian Merino/Superfine Schoeller Polypropylene.

For those women who suffer from blisters we’ve created the eXtreme range where our Blister Free™ system uses friction free Profilen® fibres in the heel and toes areas ensuring you enjoy blister-free, multi-day, hiking adventures.

Hiking Sock Range Features

WildernessWool™

Sourced from the highest grade merino wool from specific growers in Tasmania who have been selectively breeding sheep for generations. It is great that the provenance is clear and that a product range of this quality level can be truly referred to as completely Australian.

Profilen®

Profilen® is PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene). It has an extremely low friction coefficient. Profilen® yarns decrease friction to reduce the formation of blisters and abrasions and 5% of this yarn is added to our Merino wool eXtreme range of socks to ensure your hiking adventures are blister free.

Climayarn®

Merino Fusion Climayarn® provides multiple benefits including the elimination of sweat (rapid dry time), heat preservation at low temperatures and the prevention of heat caused by hiking in warmer temperatures. This blend really does combine the advantages of natural merino wool with the performance & strength of polypropylene.
