The ultimate woolly socks! Made in Tasmania, Australia on antique sock machines, from Tasmanian merino wool. These socks are warm in the cold, cool in the heat, and even maintain warmth when damp. The best socks for the worst of weather days. Naturally antibacterial and antimicrobial, they won't leave you with smelly feet even after you've worn them for a day...or two. Grey/black colourway.

Features

the brand story:

The Mongrel Socks brand was established by Laurie and Helen, a couple of proud Tasmanians in the year 2000. They set up a stall at the local Salamanca markets and soon started selling beautiful pure wool Tasmanian made on antique sock machines. They were a hit. All was ticking along nicely, until the local sock manufacturer, went out of business, which led to Laurie & Helen buying the old sock machines, and set about learning how to knit the socks themselves. The machines were temperamental, and at times a real “Mongrel” to operate, but with much patience and persistence they mastered the art of knitting socks. Today Mongrel Socks is run by another Tasmanian couple, Paul and Mylou, who took over the reins in 2019. The Tasmanian wool is sourced from farmers who are dedicated to the best animal welfare practices. Mongrel socks have secured a long term supply and are busily knitting with certified Tasmanian grown and non-mulesed Pure Merino Wool for use in all their pure wool products. Happy sheep, happy feet!

    The merino wool is lovely; keeps the perfect temperature. I’ve found other socks get too warm after a while, but not these. The wool isn’t extremely soft and delicate like merino wool scarves I’ve seen. but that also means the socks feel durable and won’t pill easily.

    Being pure wool, the socks don’t have elastic stretchiness, just some stretch allowed by the knit. So pay attention to sizing. I was between sizes and chose the larger size. In my case, the socks fit well but have some room around the toes — but I actually find this more comfortable. However that may not be the case for everyone.
