Thanks Paul I will track the return to the factory. We are a little obsessed with quality at the factory, manufacturing faults are not an option. I am glad Trappers replaced the product without to much drama.

I was quite concerned the other day to see “plastic socks” made from recycled PET…

Terribly sorry but Bridgedales for me, thank you very much. I understand they are not pure wool…

100% woollen socks maybe an option / viable since you seem to have the ear of the right people…:wink:

Modern hiking sock are highly technical in design, some of our socks have more than half a dozen different yarns in their construction. Each yarn has different characteristic in terms of elasticity and temperature transmission. Our extreme cold weather socks have more than 50% Merino Wool, these are too warm for African conditions. The quality of the yarn and the design are key to shape and fit. Wool however is also a very effective at dissipating heat built up in warm conditions. In spite of all the great properties of wool, it would not be possible to make 100% wool socks that would stay up and not shrink into teeny sizes at the first warm wash.
