There are 2 types of handmade wool socks. 

Socks made from 100% wool:                                   

  1. Due to its long “hairy”  fibers, wool feels rough, itchy, and scratchy, and it's not recommended for people with sensitive skin. These socks are chunky knit and won't fit with your boots if the boots are not a half-size bigger. They are just too thick, and bulky to fit your snow boots. 
  2. After washing the socks they can shrink and make holes faster and don't stretch
  3. Due to authentic wool properties, it has a smell
  4. They are cheaper because thick 8 strain yarn takes faster to knit
  5. Still very nice just a little rustic.

  2. The 4-strain yarn is thinner, lightweight, and can fit with your boots, sneakers
  3.  is superwash-treated wool and strengthened with polyamide for reinforcement, which can last for up to three years. After washing regains its shape.
  4.  The yarn doesn't smell

Why you should wear wool socks during your travels? 

Wool is a great insulator and helps regulate body temperature, and manage moisture, and is perfect for sweaty feet. It also resists odors for the comfort of several uses. Indeed they can be worn multiple times before washing. Wool fibers naturally have anti-bacterial properties and can actually hold a third of their weight before it even starts to feel wet. Wool also dries much more quickly than cotton or other synthetics.
