Smartwool

Smartwool Logo
SmartWool® is an apparel brand whose products are inspired by living and playing in the rugged Colorado Rocky Mountains. They offer year-round technical clothing for an active life lived in unpredictable mountain climates. Our products are created to get the most out of the inherent benefits of Merino wool while delivering extraordinary comfort and performance through smarter, more capable products that allow mountain athletes to do what they love to do longer.

They believe in the power of comfort. Simply put, it’s the belief that as long as you’re comfortable, you can do anything you put your mind to. Our lives and experience have given us a real understanding of what comfort means to a body in motion, and they’ve made it our mission to use this knowledge to help you better enjoy the outdoors. Staying comfortable all day, every day.

At the heart and soul of every SmartWool product is the amazing fiber they use: nature’s finest Merino wool. Used properly, they think it’s the best fiber available for outdoor apparel - manages moisture better than cotton, smarter than synthetics and more comfortable in any weather condition.

In our hands, it becomes extraordinary.

NOT ALL SHEEP ARE CREATED EQUAL: Introducing ZQ™
ZQ™ is an accreditation program, designed to ensure environmental, social and economic sustainability for growers, improve animal welfare and provide a means to trace end products back to the source.

By supporting ZQ™, they are supporting the ideology of fair trade. They encourage all companies, including our competitors, to do the same.

BEYOND THE FIBER
We make Merino wool more comfortable through innovative fabric creation and smart construction. Through specialized knitting technologies they’ve created fabrics that maximize the benefits of merino wool. They use smart garment construction to create products that offer the right amount of wool in areas where the body tends to chill and less where the body tends to run hot for maximum temperature regulating, comfort and performance.

EASY CARE:
Like you, they would rather be outside playing than inside doing laundry. So they’ve made most of our products easy care; meaning you can throw them in the washer and the dryer right along with the rest of your clothes. Just to be safe, though, always make sure you check the care label inside the garment.

SOME FUN SMARTWOOL FACTS
• One sheep “haircut” = One wool fleece = 10 pounds of wool = 40 pairs of SmartWool socks or 7 pieces of SmartWool Next-to-Skin Midweight
• An average SmartWool Sock has 500,000 individual fibers of wool.
• A standard cone of yarn weighs three pounds and has almost 25 miles of yarn. They use well over half a million cones of yarn a year – that’s enough to circle the earth 500 times. Talk about spinning a yarn.
• Merino sheep are fine boned and active with white wrinkled faces, white legs and pink noses. Rams have horns. They instinctively follow each other but don’t like to lead. All merino sheep are fluent in baah.

Great no-show sock! I bought them to wear with Dankso Professional Clogs and was expecting them to slide off my feet throughout the day. Not only did they stay in place, they were very comfortable and absolutely could not be seen while wearing my clog. I immediately ordered another pair! I was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved them!

These socks are well worth the price. They stay put, don't fall down under your foot. Order a size smaller for a snug fit. It will keep it from bunching up in the back of your heel.

I wrote an earlier review that I'd like to update. For the price, this top is definitely not worth it. I bought it in November 2018 and now, in March 2019, the cuff on one of the sleeves is fraying and coming apart - not the stitching, the actual fabric. I think soon there will be a hole there. It's a ridiculous amount of money for a top that isn't good quality.

These are the best socks I’ve ever owned. My feet are constantly cold as I have Renauds syndrome. I can’t stand when things are tight around my ankle. These are low enough to wear with slippers or to the gym. Can’t wear them with my boots but I have the other Smartwools for those. I wish they offered more colors in this thickness and style.

These are great socks. My shoes are much more comfortable when I have these on. They are thicker than you'd probably guess based on being described as "ultra light". They are expensive, so put on a pair of slippers when walking around the house to avoid prematurely wearing holes in the bottom.

Purchased when switching from cotton to wool underwear and I am so glad I did. I was hesitant to purchase this style as the wool content seemed low, however I was wrong to fret - these are breathable, comfortable, just amazing overall. After reading reviews I ordered one size up and the fit is perfect. May not be the most stylish or affordable but they're so comfortable I don't care.

I wear these socks for work but not running. The design on the sock is subtle but fun. They fit snugly, do not slide around, and are very lightweight. I like these socks, but I do not find them any better than any other socks.

I have long been wearing Smartwool Hide and Seek socks. When I saw these were available in a "cushioned" version, I was super excited. I have to say, these new hide and seeks are TERRIBLE!! Despite the anti-slip backing, these roll off my feet within minutes of readjusting them. So disappointing. Smartwool - you can do better.

Comfy, true to size, and warm without making my feet sweaty. They aren’t bulky and work well under boots. I’ve been line drying and they seem to be holding up well so far this season.

I wanted a sock with a little more padding and coziness so these unfortunately didn't fit the bill. The sock felt a little rougher than I would've liked it. Pattern is great, just wasn't the thickness/softness I was hoping for.

I wear a shoe size 6 and ordered several of this smartwool socks in “medium” size; they fit perfect. I know from experience that I can machine wash them in warm water but won’t make the mistake of tossing them in the dryer machine for they will shrink. Highly recommend smart wool phd run light socks, odor free, nice fit, pretty!!!

I have not even had these socks for two months and they have huge holes in them and will need to be thrown out. They are way too expensive to degrade so quickly. I will not buy smartwool again.
