Sock Club – December 2015 – Review & Giveaway
When you think of California, the first material that comes to mind is generally not wool. People in California tend to live in shorts, bikini tops. and flip-flops – and that is in mid-December. I am not one of these people, as I run cold all the time. I get cold while going through our local grocery store. Since I have this temperature issue, I plan accordingly – I have sweaters in the car and I always wear socks around my house at night.
Despite the warmth factor, I tend to shy away from wool due to the added weight that wool sock provide. I can honestly say that my opinion of wool socks has forever been changed from this months SockClub sock selection for the December sock.
I received a pair called “The Wool Lustre” – the first Sock Club sock made with wool. The socks were packaged in the usual 8×11 “Sock Club” branded cardboard envelope and were packed safely inside. When I opened the envelope I found the classically wrapped brown bag package with a red wax seal in the middle, which is designed as a closure of the socks included therein. As with previous review package’s I received from Sock Club the enclosed letter explained the inspiration behind the current months selection.
The Limited Release Wool Lustre sock is a multi colored sock with stripes of varying width in red, gray and black alternating throughout the sock as you go toward the toes. The top of the socks have a thin band of black and followed by grey, red and black. The socks went up my calf about halfway between my ankle and knee, and held there very well throughout my day. The label stated that the sock was made up of 52% wool, 24% nylon, 17% cotton, 6% polyester and 1% spandex, so shrinkage should be at a minimum. This was a comfortable sock that was thin unlike a traditional wool sock. Despite it being wool the sock allows it to be worn with just about any shoe without adding extra bulk.
These were the most diversely fibrous socks that I have seen, and I am guessing that it is due to the wool. These were very comfortable socks, and they kept my feet warm, without the wool bulk of other wool socks. These socks are reminiscent of the holidays, which given it is the December sock, it seems very appropriate. I love these socks, and I wore them on Christmas, and got many compliments. While my overall temperature still needs regulation, it is nice to know my feet are going to be warm!
If you are a sock lover or liker, I would HIGHLY recommend giving Sock Club a try!
