  1. The white one remind me of Adlers. I wonder if they turn yellowish the way Adlers did.

  2. While I'm sure these are very good socks, let us remember that DARN TOUGH merino wool socks from Vermont, right here in New England, are excellent too.

    1. I concur and heartily endorse buying goods made in the country where you live as much as possible. When it is not possible to find what you want made at home, look to goods made in countries you respect. Commerce drives governmental revenue and employment. You want your neighbors to have opportunities and you want tax dollars going to good things. Even socks have policy implications! BTW, I live in the USA and if I needed or wanted socks like these and could not find them MiUSA, these would be just ducky. Very nice.

    2. Wigwam is also an American maker of quality wool socks.

  4. Interested to hear how they are in terms of warmth & friction against your feet. When i climb in the winter in New Hampshire, I wear either Smartwool or Bridgedale expedition-weight socks. Neither brand looks nearly as nice as these, but they're both very warm, don't bunch when they get damp, & are soft against your feet.

  5. I have tons of socks, including British army issue artic socks, US Army heavy winter socks (actually better than the British ones) but the best heavy socks I have came from Custom Woolen Mills, Ltd., in Alberta. The ones I wear most are mid-weight socks from Cabela's.
