The Pickens is an ultralight roll-top sock for everyday wear based on our popular Arlington. The women's Pickens has the same great feel as the Arlington, but with an abstract floral design. The design is created using our sculpture knitting technique that carves out yarns to create patterns. This not only creates a design in relief, but also reduces weight while increasing comfort, especially in warmer weather. Made with 100% American merino wool, the Pickens brings some high art to your everyday wardrobe.
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.
