    Hiking and walking in warm weather requires the right sock to keep your feet comfortable and dry. You need a sock that is durable, odor-resistant, and comfortable. In the summertime, warm weather can take a toll on your body (especially your feet) and make you sweat.

    Light socks are indispensable for the summer
    You'll hardly think of putting on thick winter socks in summer. However, thin and light socks differ in thickness and type of material. Even socks made of popular natural materials such as cotton are not always made into an equally strong fabric.

    Light socks with further meshes and less use of material ensure a pleasant wearing comfort and a discreet climate control of your foot. This is not costing the material and the durability of your socks for the summer. For example, blended fabrics of cotton and viscose ensure that your socks are flexible and easy to care for. Enjoy a pleasant feeling of sweaty feet over several summers.

    Cotton is a lightweight, moisture-absorbing fiber. It's breathable, washable and durable, so it is the most common fiber in socks. Because it is so great at absorbing moisture, it is generally blended with nylon, a nonabsorbent material, to help move moisture away from the foot.

    If your socks are not labeled as "preshrunk cotton," they are likely to shrink in the wash if you use hot water or a hot dryer cycle. The best way to avoid this is to wash in cold water and drip dry on a line. Learn more about how to care for our different socks.

    Cotton is grown all over the world, but droughts, pests and the weather can impact production, sometimes driving up the price. Cotton fiber is gathered from around the seeds of the cotton plant and is 90% cellulose.

    Here are some of the specialized kinds of cotton commonly used in the socks we sell:
    Organic cotton is grown with non-genetically modified plants, without pesticides and without fertilizers. This method of growing cotton is thought to allow for more biodiversity, benefitting the environment. One sock brand we carry, Zkano, specializes in organic cotton socks.
    Recycled cotton (recovered cotton) is usually spun from scraps that would have been discarded after the spinning, weaving or cutting processes.

    Mercerized cotton is a cotton yarn that is put through an additional finishing process called mercerizing to provide great luster and softness to the yarn and to intensify dyed colors.
    Combed cotton is treated more than standard cotton to remove short fibers and impurities. The cotton is literally combed, leaving long, straight cotton fibers only. These are wonderful for weaving fabrics, because they don't fray as easily and feel softer against your skin. Generally, combed cotton is more expensive than regular cotton. One of our most popular brands, Stance, specializes in combed cotton blends.

    Wool from sheep and other animals is the original easy care fiber. Each wool fiber is made up of millions of coiled springs that stretch in use but bounce back to their original positions. Wool naturally has wrinkle resistance, colorfastness and shape recovery, and it breathes with your body. Wool yarn, when knotted into a thicker sock, tends to be bulky and lofty. Air becomes trapped, making wool an ideal insulator. Wool socks also keep feet drier because wool absorbs as much as 30% of its own weight in moisture before it begins to feel damp. Thanks to these properties, wool socks are great for hiking.

    Here are a couple of common kinds of specialty wool:
    Merino wool is a special, fine grade of wool that originally came from Merino sheep. It shares all of the characteristics classic to wool that are listed above, but what makes Merino wool different is the luxurious softness and comfort provided by the fine diameter Merino fibers. Unlike traditional wool, Merino wool does not itch and is shrink-treated to hold its size and shape even after repeated washings.
    Smartwool is actually a brand name of a clothing company, and we are proud to sell their popular socks. The company came up with the term Smartwool to distinguish its specialty wool, which has the small barbs removed from the fibers to make them exceptionally comfortable. Check out our Smartwool socks.

    A number of different kinds of dyes are popularly used in sock manufacturing. The dyeing process typically takes place on batches of fibers that are later woven into a sock. Here are some of the most common kinds of dyes:
    Low-impact dyes have been classified by an international certification process as eco-friendly. Generally, they do not contain toxic chemicals or mordants, which fix the dye to the fabric. They require less rinsing and have a high absorption rate in fibers, which wastes less water.

    Fiber-reactive dyes are synthetic low-impact dyes that directly bond with the fibers. They are more expensive than other low-impact dyes.

    Natural dyes are typically made from wild plants, lichens and other natural materials. They often require large quantities of the environmental materials, as well as additional mordants, for a saturated color.

    A mordant is a substance, typically an inorganic oxide, that combines with a dye or stain to fix it in a material. It essentially helps a dye “take” and last a long time in a fiber. Commonly used mordants are tannic acid, alum, sodium chloride and salts of aluminium, chromium, copper, iron, iodine, potassium, sodium, tungsten and tin.
