I love clothing and I’m especially a bit of a sock fanatic. Some of my socks are extra comfortable. Some have fun, crazy patterns. But I have never had a pair of socks that were as amazing as my new Smartwool PhD Outdoor Light Crew socks from Appalachian Outdoors. I received a pair of these socks to review and I couldn’t believe how comfortable they were when I put them on.
The socks are made of merino wool, which is a superior fabric for clothing because it keeps you warm and dry in the winter and cool and dry in the summer. Wool is incredibly good at regulating body temperature and that meant that even after a busy day on my feet, my socks were still dry and my feet were comfortable. These socks would be wonderful for hiking, biking or any outdoor activity.
When the weather warmed up, I expected that the socks would be too hot. I was surprised to find that I was just as comfortable wearing them on a warm day as I had been when the weather was cold. Even though I had heard wool was appropriate for both warm and cool weather, I really didn’t fully believe it until I had tried these socks for myself. And Appalachian Outdoors even offers Smartwool products made of merino wool that are specially made to be appropriate for warm or cold weather! The cold weather garments are made of the sheep’s winter wool and the warm weather garments are made of the summer wool.
I haven’t owned a piece of clothing made with merino wool before but now that I have one I understand why it’s so popular. And because feet are often the hardest part of the body to keep dry and comfortable, having socks made from merino wool is an especially good choice! Check out the Smartwool PhD Outdoor Light Crew socks from Appalachian Outdoors for yourself and enjoy comfortable feet all year long!
