Let's talk a little about Darn Tough socks
In this section we are going to explain the characteristics of the best socks on the market.
Why are Darn Tough socks so durable and top performing?
Use fine gauge merino wool
The price of merino wool can vary up to 8 times from the thickest to the finest.
Fine gauge merino wool is the best performing wool.
This wool is not itchy and has the best thermoregulation qualities.
Knit the stitch very close together
Not only does using the best merino wool on the market achieve the best results.
One of the most important points is to knit the stitch as close together as possible.
This is very decisive for excellent performance.
But a closer weave involves threads and therefore increases the price.
Three generations making socks
You can use the finest wool on the market and knit it very close together, but then you need to have the knowledge that 3 generations give you to know how to make the best socks.
It's about the arrangement of the threads in the different areas of the sock, but that's Top Secret.
All Darn Tough socks are seamless
All Darn Tough socks have a midfoot area to keep the sock in place.
Reinforced toe and heel
All Darn Tough socks have a reinforced heel and toe with exclusive technology to make them the most durable.
They don't tighten
All Darn Tough socks are non-tightening and non-falling socks.
You put them on and forget you're wearing them.
Achilles tendon reinforcement
Some models of Darn Tough socks have padding in the Achilles tendon area for comfort and durability.
Breathable mesh and flex zone
Some models have areas with breathable meshes and flexion areas where they reduce the thickness of the sock as much as possible so as not to disturb the foot when flexing.

This height is used in everyday socks and some for running.
It is a height very similar to boot height, which is why we have joined them together.
This height is perfect to wear with boots, even tall ones.
At this height there is padding in the shin area.
below the knee
Thickness of threads and padding
From the lightest thread Darn Tough makes to the heaviest.
Everything will depend on the activity. The lightest ones for running and the heaviest ones for activities with little mobility and where you need the sock to retain maximum heat.
The distribution of padding in Darn Tough socks depends on the activity they are designed for.
The padding will provide comfort and protection.
There are socks without padding, with padding in the sole and padding throughout the sock.
Socks that do not have padding are the lightest models.
Padding on the floor
This padding is the most used by Darn Tough.
Depending on the model and activity, Darn Tough modifies this padding on the sole to provide protection and comfort in the areas that are needed.
In this case the padding occupies the entire sock.
What is Twisted Yarn?
Darn Tough makes socks with two types of construction.
With the Twisted Yarn construction, two threads are joined together by twisting them and creating a thread with which the socks are then knitted.
This gives the socks an incredible "fluffiness". Without a doubt the softest socks.
And the normal construction that is with a thread.
What is the main material of the socks?
Merino wool, Coolmax® or Thermolite®
These are the main materials that socks are made of.
The main option for Darn Tough is merino wool but for those who have a merino wool allergy or simply prefer a vegan option there is the option of Coolmax® or Thermolite®.
