In just one year, a single sheep can produce well over 3,000 miles of fiber! That’s enough wool to stretch from Providence, Rhode Island to Los Angeles, California! We can’t imagine you’re planning on hiking anywhere near that length, but you’ll feel as though you could when you’re wearing the Women’s Hike Light Cushion Low Ankle Sock from Smartwool! Merino wool just has that effect.

The Hike Light Cushion Ankle Socks for Women features Smartwool’s top technologies such as their 4 Degree™ Elite dialed-in fit systems and updated mesh zones. The entire bottom of the foot features light cushioning to offer extra comfort. Built with Indestructawool™ Technology, these socks are a perfect fit with powerful durability! Keep your feet feeling comfy while you push yourself to the limit for plenty of years to come!

The Smartwool Story

Smartwool is a little ski-town brand founded by Peter and Patty Duke—ski instructors who moved in 1994 from the East Coast to Steamboat, Colorado. “That first year in Steamboat was the coldest my feet have ever been,” Peter was quoted in an Outdoor Retailer article from 2017. “I literally poured water out of my boots at the end of the day! A friend and I made some merino socks, and after that my feet were the warmest they’ve ever been, and they were absolutely dry. That’s when the lightbulb went off.”

These socks are made of biodegradable materials so that, when they DO eventually wear out, it only takes a few years before they totally decompose. The outdoors means everything to Smartwool since, like us, their whole existence is to help folks spend time outside.

Happy sheep make for happy customers, which is why Smartwool works to ensure that the Merino sheep whose wool they shear live happy, peaceful lives in their natural habitat. Coming off the sheep greasy, the wool is cleaned, combed, and spun into yarn which is then made into amazing Smartwool products, available right here for the comfort of campers’ rambling feet! High-performing and uncompromisingly comfortable, Smartwool socks are an excellent choice for the active camper!

Why Wool?

It may sound like torture to wear wool on your feet, but that’s because you’re thinking of the itchy sweater your Grandma knitted for you. That’s a different type of wool than Smartwool. Smartwool uses responsibly-sourced Merino wool which consists of a much thinner and softer fiber. It isn’t itchy at all. In fact, it’s insanely soft, unbelievably breathable, and completely comfortable!

Wool in the Summer?

You may think wool would only be for keeping you warm but that isn’t always the case. In fact, some campers prefer to ONLY wear wool socks since they keep your feet a comfortable temperature—warm when it’s cold out and cool in the heat. Wool actually works by regulating your body temperature. Smartwool socks are made of a thinner wool that is anti-odor and moisture-wicking to keep your feet feeling cool even in the thick of the summer season.

Get Smart About Your Socks!

Thanks to the nature of this ‘miracle fiber’, Smartwool socks are naturally antibacterial, resist odor, and wick moisture away. For that reason, these socks don’t require washing after each use. You know your child. They MIGHT just grab the SAME pair of socks from yesterday! If they’re just going to wear the same socks again, make sure they’re Smartwool. The whole cabin will appreciate socks that don’t stink!
