The 16 Inch Wool Ragg Socks Return - Made in the U.S.A.


L.L. Bean is once again offering the taller, 16 inch wool ragg sock this season.   Shown above, on the left, next to the 12 inch wool ragg sock on the right, it is a bit lighter in color and has stripes at the top, and still made in the U.S.A..  While the shorter versions work well with bluchers, camp mocs and boat shoes, some find the taller versions preferable with wellies and in the field.

    1. As do I. I will stock up while they are available.

  2. I had the tall version in my hands in the Freeport store last night but didn't buy them. I used to live in the shorter version all winter with my Bean boots back in the 1980s. As I've gotten older I've begun to dislike the feeling of heavy wool socks so I stick with thin.

    1. I agree! My heavy ragg socks sit sad and abandoned in my sock drawer, while their Darn Tough and Smartwool cousins are out and about.
