These socks are real nice. Nice and thin and not at all itchy or fuzzy feeling like some other wool socks. They do definitely have all the great natural wicking and odor resistance of wool socks though. I wore them for a few days straight and they didn’t seem dirty at all.
I'm a size 12 US foot ant the XL fit great... sometimes I size down to L in socks but I'm glad I didn't this time. These socks are amazingly light weight- not a winter stocking by any stretch (several other wool socks I have bought for riding are just too thick and hot for anything but cold days). Super comfy texture and all the antimicrobial benefits of wool without the scratchy thickness.
