Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on October 12, 2019
When these arrived, I was first disappointed in the fact that they were MUCH lighter than what is pictured. Additionally, these looked like they were a cotton-type sock. I'm not able to discern types of fabric, but they feel nothing like the brand of Merino socks (the grey/black ones) that I purchased for my husband. I have a few Merino wool items and know what it feels like and these do not feel like Merino wool. Additionally, with some abuse of the washing and drying on low heat (I know...don't do this to Merino wool), the socks have starting pilling. They haven't shrunk, so that's good. However, I can clearly see the difference in pilling on these socks compared to the black Merino ones. in the black ones, you can even see the wool fibers sticking out. Not in these. These are pilling just like cotton or cotton blend sock. Additionally, there is zero dye on the inside of the sock...so did they just lightly dip the outside? I will not be purchasing these again and recommend looking elsewhere for real Merino wool socks.
