The ultralight, durable merino wool fabric makes the Ithaca Crew socks perfect for everyday wear. A thin profile allows them to naturally fit with most shoe styles. Merino wool's natural, moisture-wicking properties help regulate temperature and keep your feet comfortable in almost any weather, making them perfect for outdoor activities. American-made hidden plaiting construction creates a fun, vibrant pattern with a durable, lasting finish.
U.S. Merino Wool - Merino wool is soft, itch-free, naturally odor- and bacteria-resistant, cool in the summer and warm in winter. We source our 100% U.S. grown merino wool exclusively from sheep raised by American farmers on American farms.
Hidden Nylon Plaiting - Advanced construction that sandwiches stretch yarns between two layers of body yarn, hidden nylon plaiting creates a smooth exterior and a low-profile fit that is ideal for technical and sport socks. A side benefit of this modern knitting technique is its ability to incorporate complex patterns, open-weave zones, and intricate designs for increased performance and extra style.
Flat-Knit Construction - We use flat-knit construction in our lightest weight casual socks and in the non-cushioned zones of some technical sport socks. Its thin cross-section helps with ventilation and reduces bulk for a better fit in low-volume footwear, while the smooth seamless knit feels wonderful next to the skin.
Seamless Toe Closure - Advanced knitting techniques create a totally flat connection in the toe box, reducing bulk and eliminating blister-generating friction.
Comfort Compression - Circumferential compression from the top of the sock through the arch creates a precise, comfortable fit that helps support the foot throughout the day.
Durability Assured - Reinforced construction and low-stress seam placement reduce wear and tear, increasing the life of the sock.
