Compact Spun Merino Wool
Not all merino is created equal. Don’t be fooled by a label. There is a huge range in the quality of merino wool out there. Point6 has spent over 20 years perfecting merino wool products. In fact, they’ve mastered merino wool. The result is high-performance merino wool products whose quality, durability and comfort are unmatched. Guaranteed. Point6 socks compact spins its merino wool. Compared to the standard ring-spun merino yarn, compact spinning brings the ends of the merino wool fibers to the inside of the yarn for increased durability and softness and decreased pilling and bulk.
Naturetexx plasma: the most sustainable way to process merino
Naturetexx plasma clean uses only air and plasma, powered by renewable energy, to make merino wool machine washable and super soft. Naturetexx is the ecological alternative to the industry standard merino wool processing, a process called superwashing, that uses chlorine and water to process the merino wool fibers.
I used a few pairs of these socks for an ultra endurance race on the Iditarod Trail in Alaska. Put simply, they were the best socks I've ever used for this race and will be using them again, only regret was not buying more pairs for use in rotation, I had to buy another pair of another brand before I raced, and they were nowhere near as good as the Point6 ones. The Point6 socks were quick and easy to put on, held their loft/cushion in the foot area, were quick to dry, no scrunching around the toes and allowed really good blood flow without compression, light pressure in the cuff and they stayed up with so sagging. Highly recommend them over any other brand!
