Just as we have our favorite bibs, we definitely have our favorite socks. In cold weather, when we head for the sock drawer we go looking for a pair of socks made from Merino wool. Our comfort, and sometimes our sanity, depends on it.The Castelli Merino Socks have some technical details that make them as good as any we've ever seen. Ribs at the ankle and compression elastic at the arch keep the socks from bunching up and cutting off circulation or causing blisters. The 9cm cuff is slightly longer than the traditional 7.5cm cuff, giving the socks a stylish look that aficionados of either long or short cuffs should find appealing.The Castelli Merino Socks come in Black and in three sizes -- Small/Medium, Large/X-Large, and XX-Large.
