  These are the best in test and I literally did the test. Got other brands from big outdoor shops and they just are not as good as these. If you need warm socks, these hold their shape, last for years, fit properly, and are better than all the others. Woodlore gets them out in a couple of days without fail, ever.

  The best quality (woollen) socks I have found. Extremely warm, strong and comfortable. No other brand has even come close. Knee length, which makes a big difference when it's cold. Strong reinforced heels and toes etc, 60% wool, Fantastic. The very best, thank you Woodlore! Super fast and efficient service as always. Not keen on the colour.

  These are my go-to socks for most things outdoors. They are comfy for both boots and wellingtons. Warm for winter wild swimming, and winter camping. Hard wearing and easy to wash. Bargain!

  I first wore these socks in the early 90s and back then they were the best sock that money could buy. In my opinion they still are. These and the Thorlo TKX Trekking sock are the only outdoor sock I wear. These for winter and the TKX for summer. No other sock has come close to these in terms of comfort, performance and durability in my 34 years experience of outdoor activities. One word of caution. They are thick and if you wear boots or other footwear that peehaps have a little less room in them than they should, you might find your feet a bit cramped.

  Very comfortable & warm however I did not notice any difference between these socks & the wool & synthetic army socks I already own I was expecting them to be warmer given they are extreme cold weather socks. When I'm stationery for any given time I do feel the cold in my feet despite wearing these on top of more wool socks. However they are very comfortable & nice & secure round the calfs & don't come down like others. But for the price I guess I was expecting them to be better hence the 2 star Drop. I would recommend them for hiking in cold weather but would not recommend them when the temperature gets in the minus especially when stationery.

  They are THE most comfortable warm hug giving socks I have ever worn. You can feel the warm comforting sensation and that there is little chance of blisters either. I wish I could wear them all day every day. Quite simply buy a pair!
