The Noble Wilde Trekka Socks are a durable and hard-wearing mid-calf length sock created from a special blend of fine merino wool and insulating possum fur, making them a luxurious addition to your sock drawer.

Possum fur’s hollow core enhances the warmth of merino wool, and gives the material its lightweight, lofty feel, and reduces the pilling often associated with pure woollen garments. Making it perfect for both summer and winter wear. The idea of blending these two natural fibres was first developed by a New Zealand knitter as a by-product of the possum control programme, making the merino/possum blend an environmentally sound choice.

These socks have been made with plush zones in the heal and toe area for added comfort and wear and also helps protect against blisters. The antimicrobial properties of merino wool and possum fur makes these socks naturally odour resistant.

For many years now, Woodlore have stocked the Noble Wilde Beanie, a best-selling item which has proved extremely popular among our fellow outdoorsmen and women year after year. As such, it seemed like an obvious choice to also stock their socks.

Possum fur is one of the most extraordinary natural fibres in the world, thanks to its hollow core; this cavity traps a tunnel of air that provides extraordinary warmth (up to 30% more than standard woollen garments), while keeping the fibre's weight to a minimum. As a sign of just how effective this is, the only other animal with a hollow core fibre is the polar bear.

Merino wool also has unique characteristics; each fibre is exceptionally fine, long and densely crimped, helping to retain heat close to the skin while keeping out cold air. The fibre also wicks moisture away from the skin, allowing the wool to stay warm and dry. The combination of merino wool with possum fur results in a fabric that is lightweight, twice as warm as wool, highly resistant to pilling and opulently soft to the touch.

Two other fibres have been added to the mix. These fibres help to provide a hard-wearing outer surface to the socks, while retaining just the right amount of stretch to give a firm fit to your foot. Please note these socks are a stretchy fit; as such you can order a size down if you are unsure.
