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:
