Extremities Toester Wool Blend Thermal Mountain Socks Long
Extremities Toester Wool Blend Thermal Mountain Socks Long by Terra Nova are one of the warmest socks currently available and are ideal for use in hostile mountain environments and expeditions, either with synthetic or leather boots.
The major yarn content of the Toester socks is 63% Wool Ultra™, a fibre made from the finest premium New Zealand wool. The benefits of using this yarn in the socks is its excellent insulating properties, its quick compression recovery and its advanced moisture management. Nylon, Polypropylene and Elastane are also added to the blend to stabilise the wool content during washing so the socks do not shrink or de-shape, provide greater durability, increase the level of stretch for a more comfortable fit, and aid in wicking.
The construction of the socks themselves have a number of technical features to aid the wearer when in the mountains. The toe seam is completed by hand to provide a flatter finish, increasing the wearers comfort and reducing potential seam rub. Extra padding has been placed on the toes, heel and shin for added protection, whilst the ankle has extra grip to reduce the movement of the sock in the boot - if the sock is allowed to move uncontrollably then it can lead to friction and blisters. This is further aided by the instep itself containing elastane that reduces sock movement due to its increased elasticity.
These long Toester mountain socks finish just below the knee and are ideal for high mountaineering boots.

I'm no mountaineer but i appreciate the warmth of these socks. My toes no longer feel like ice cubes in my walking boots.
