The Warmest Wool Socks Of 2020

If you are prone to getting cold feet in the winter, you’ll appreciate the warmth of a sock made with premium wool. If you venture outdoors, the extra warmth will allow you to be comfortable even while hiking in the snow.

The warmest wools are: qiviut (musk ox down), yak wool and bison wool.

Merino and alpaca wool are also very warm fibers. See my previous article for a closer examination of these wools.

Listed below are the warmest socks I’ve tested:

Warmest Boot/Hiking Socks

  • 90% Bison Wool Boot Socks by Buffalo Wool Company — highest percentage of bison wool in a boot sock — $54
  • Wayfarer Sock by Khunu — 56% yak wool, 34.5% nylon, 9.5% Elastane — £22 ($28 USD)
  • 78% Alpaca Socks by Williamston Alpaca — 78% Alpaca, 20% Nylon, 2% Lycra — made in the USA — $22

Yak Wool Socks On Ebay

I’ve also tested these yak wool socks that are made in Mongolia. They are sold by various vendors on eBay $15. These are good socks and they are quite warm, but the wool is not as fine as some of the socks listed above.
