Organic Sustainable Socks Manufacturer in Lviv, Ukraine

Soft and Gentle

Merino wool socks are incredibly soft and comfortable. Wool generally gives several advantages over other materials, but merino socks take it a notch higher. The merino fibers are less coarse and less thin compared to the regular wool.

Ideally, wearing regular wool requires you to have something else underneath to protect your feet from the garment. However, merino socks are extraordinarily soft, and you can wear them directly to your skin.

Renewable and Biodegradable

Generally, the raising of merino sheep requires less use of chemicals and pesticides. Also, harvesting the merino wool is like taking your dog to a groomer for a summer haircut.As such, merino wool remains environmentally friendly.

The good thing with merino wool is that you can harvest the wool every year without affecting the sheep. The process of harvesting involves manual labor and does not cause any pain to the sheep.  It is also biodegradable, keeping the environment clean.

Our factory chooses to work with RWS (Responsible Wool Standard) certified merino wool, which ensures 100% ethical treatment of sheep to a rigorous standard.

Cool and Breathable in the Summer

Merino socks are breathable because of their moisture-wicking properties. The fibers also deter bacteria, keeping them odor resistant. As such, one can use merino socks several times before they need to wash (depending on one’s activity). The socks will remain breathable during summer, wicking sweat away from your feet, keeping the feet comfortable.

Merino Wool is Lightweight

Merino socks are products of fine fibers, keeping them lightweight. The socks also have unmatched moisture-wicking properties, making them dry quickly. It keeps the socks light on one’s feet, and someone can easily wear the socks with shoes.

The ability to wick moisture away from the body helps maintain comfortability and regulate temperatures during the hot summer weather. It absorbs sweat from the body and wicks it to the outside of the garment to evaporate.

Temperature Regulation

Merino wool is an all-weather material and will keep you comfortable through any kind of weather. Another property is the ability to insulate. Merino socks will keep someone warm by insulating instead of trapping heat.

The socks will offer insulation against cold air and keep the warm air inside. As a result, they will keep your feet warm during cold winter conditions.

This is a key reason why winter sports and ski socks manufacturers use merino wool as their go-to material.


Merino socks are among the best socks that one can wear. They are suitable in all weather conditions and can help in regulating the body temperature. They also do not trap odors, keeping you comfortable. Being soft and gentle on one’s skin, one can easily wear merino socks directly on the skin. The care and maintenance are also easy, and one does not need to wash them as often as other fabric kinds.
