If you're not sure about merino cycling socks, let us explain why it's great for winter riding.
Merino wool feels soft and luxurious against your skin, it's natural elasticity allows the socks to conform to every angle of the foot making it feel cosy when cycling. Merino is the finest of all wools, enabling us to knit a cycling specific sock that is denser but not thicker giving better heat regulating properties. Which is very important if you want warmer feet when winter riding. Without getting too technical, wool has a natural crimp in it that helps it trap air. This air is a fantastic insulator and provides a great buffer against the cold. Which is a winner in our book.
Finally Merino wool cycling socks can absorb and retain up to 30% of its own weight in moisture and still feel dry to the touch. Good news if you're out on long winter rides.
