    New! Hirsch Natur's Trekking socks for walkers, hikers and active folk, now in a wool/cotton blend for extra strength. Knitted from 85% organic Perendale wool, these cosy socks also contain 15% organic cotton to provide structural reinforcement. Designed with a plush wool sole for added warmth, wicking ability and comfort. The plush sole is created by knitting in an extra thread in the sole to add cushioning underfoot without being too thick. 

    Wool is perfect for hikers because it feels comfortable and dry, even when your feet sweat. It can absorb a lot of moisture - up to 33% of its dry weight which helps to prevent blisters.

    Perendale wool is a NZ sheep breed and makes a great all-purpose wool fibre. With a fineness of 28-32 microns, it is firmly in the medium range of wools. It has significant loft and a good amount of spring due to its spiral crimp, along with a long staple length. It's a springy bouncy wool great for socks.

    BrandHirsch Natur, est. 1928
    Designed in: Germany
    Origine of Fibre:NZ sheep breed Perendale
    Country of manufacture: Spun in Europe. Dyed, knitted and manufactured in Germany.
    Certifications: GOTS certified organic cotton. Mulesing Free pure Perendale wool.
    Fabric structure: Knitted from 85% Perendale wool and 15%  cotton from certified organic cultivation. A few strings of elastane are sewn into the top inch of the cuff to stop the socks from falling down - these make up 0.3-0.5% of total fibres.
    Biodegradability: Wool and cotton fibres are 100% biodegradable. Before composting, remove the few elastane threads in the cuff to dispose of separately, or cut away top inch to re-use as a hair-tie, garden tie, etc.
    Machine Washable: Yes (see our guide to washing wool)

    Care: Air between uses, only wash when required, handwash or gentle cold wool machine cycle. Please treat these socks with the same care and love you'd give to a handknitted sock. Always wear with sock savers (slippers!) to reduce wear and tear on your quality wool socks. Wool socks will wear through faster than socks with nylon. Darn for life long love. 

    Sizes: (true to size) To ensure your socks are not subject to unnecessary friction be sure to choose a well fitted sock. Don't size up.
