Smartwool

Smartwool Logo
SmartWool® is an apparel brand whose products are inspired by living and playing in the rugged Colorado Rocky Mountains. They offer year-round technical clothing for an active life lived in unpredictable mountain climates. Our products are created to get the most out of the inherent benefits of Merino wool while delivering extraordinary comfort and performance through smarter, more capable products that allow mountain athletes to do what they love to do longer.

They believe in the power of comfort. Simply put, it’s the belief that as long as you’re comfortable, you can do anything you put your mind to. Our lives and experience have given us a real understanding of what comfort means to a body in motion, and they’ve made it our mission to use this knowledge to help you better enjoy the outdoors. Staying comfortable all day, every day.

At the heart and soul of every SmartWool product is the amazing fiber they use: nature’s finest Merino wool. Used properly, they think it’s the best fiber available for outdoor apparel - manages moisture better than cotton, smarter than synthetics and more comfortable in any weather condition.

In our hands, it becomes extraordinary.

NOT ALL SHEEP ARE CREATED EQUAL: Introducing ZQ™
ZQ™ is an accreditation program, designed to ensure environmental, social and economic sustainability for growers, improve animal welfare and provide a means to trace end products back to the source.

By supporting ZQ™, they are supporting the ideology of fair trade. They encourage all companies, including our competitors, to do the same.

BEYOND THE FIBER
We make Merino wool more comfortable through innovative fabric creation and smart construction. Through specialized knitting technologies they’ve created fabrics that maximize the benefits of merino wool. They use smart garment construction to create products that offer the right amount of wool in areas where the body tends to chill and less where the body tends to run hot for maximum temperature regulating, comfort and performance.

EASY CARE:
Like you, they would rather be outside playing than inside doing laundry. So they’ve made most of our products easy care; meaning you can throw them in the washer and the dryer right along with the rest of your clothes. Just to be safe, though, always make sure you check the care label inside the garment.

SOME FUN SMARTWOOL FACTS
• One sheep “haircut” = One wool fleece = 10 pounds of wool = 40 pairs of SmartWool socks or 7 pieces of SmartWool Next-to-Skin Midweight
• An average SmartWool Sock has 500,000 individual fibers of wool.
• A standard cone of yarn weighs three pounds and has almost 25 miles of yarn. They use well over half a million cones of yarn a year – that’s enough to circle the earth 500 times. Talk about spinning a yarn.
• Merino sheep are fine boned and active with white wrinkled faces, white legs and pink noses. Rams have horns. They instinctively follow each other but don’t like to lead. All merino sheep are fluent in baah.

I rarely write reviews but these little socks are amazing! I’ve tried several brands of similar socks to wear inside booties always searching for that perfect pair that stays put and doesn’t show. These are the only pair I’ve found that really work. I’ve even worn them in my shearling-lined Uggs and they stay on even while pulling my boots off. I purchased the black 3-pack after receiving one pair as a gift. I wear a 7 to 7.5 shoe and the size medium has plenty of toe room but works beautifully. Buy these; you won’t be disappointed.

This hat is great! Keeps my head nice and warm, and I love the slits for the sunglasses. It even fits under my bike helmet. Fits my medium to large dome perfectly. My only gripe is that it’s ugly.

The pants are way too small around the waist. They also seem short. I wear a 4 and the small is super tight. I’ll return and get a medium. The matching top is great though.

These have a sharp and painful toe seam - immediate return. I wore these for about two minutes before it felt like something was cutting into the top/tips of my toes. I took off the socks, and my toes had a indention in them, and when I turned the socks inside out, both had a very prominent and hard toe seam that cuts into your feet. Not the quality I expect from Smart Wool or from $16+ socks. No way.

These are exactly the quality you expect from Smartwool... However they do not mention the merino wool in the packaging. Is it just normal wool or merino wool which is not just as processed. They did not feel like the normal soft selves of Smartwool.

Very warm and fluffy socks. Size seems to run large, at least compared to other Smartwool ski socks that I have. The top part seems to slide down the leg. I recommend combining with high top hiking boots or ski boots so that the sock stays in place.

I love the Smartwool socks - totally addicted & have purchased an embarrassing number of them- this is my first pair of the mini style as I usually prefer the now show- micro height- I tried these because I wanted to try something different and personally I prefer the shorter height; that being said, I definitely recommend the Smartwool brand- they hold their shape thru multiple washings, do not slip inside my shoes and are super cozy- I have no idea how they manage to make a product that can keep my feet warm in the cool weather and the same sock can be worn in summer without making my feet sweat....magic??? love them!

I loved the color but the gloves were not as warm as I had hoped and they were too big. If there was a smaller size, I may have tried that but since SM/MD is the smallest size, I am returning them.

The hat feels a bit loose but, worse, it is not warm. I've been really disappointed - it's Smartwool, after all. If I wear it when its about 40 degrees and not windy, it's fine, but if the temperatures dip or if the wind kicks up, the cold air whips right through the weave in the knit. I have a skull cap I wear under my bike helmet and I wear that underneath the hat to make it bearable. It's a cute hat. It's not a functional hat.

I can only wear seamless socks. Other pairs of socks in this style are not seamless so these are perfect. In general I like Smartwool socks but have had to toss the other styles I had because there weren't seamless.

I just bought my second pair. They are worth every penny when it's -30 below in northern Wisconsin. They fit well in my winter boots. They're also great around the house. I would definitely recommend these to friends.

Up your sock game with these. I wear them year round. They magically keep my feet warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Best sock secret around. I don’t put them in the dryer, but they dry quickly. I have 12 pairs.

Love smart wool socks. Tried these leggings - poor quality and construction. After washing they shrunk significantly and are already piling. The waistband is no longer laying flat. My 10 year old REI ones are in much better shape! Very disappointed.

I really liked this skirt - very cute and would have covered my butt in leggings perfectly so I didn't have to worry about finding/wearing longer shirts. The additional stretch material on each side was great. I originally ordered the Medium and thought it was a just a little more snug than I had hoped, so I ordered the Large and it was way too loose. I should have stuck with the Medium but had already sent it back when I ordered the Large. =( and the trip I was ultimately planning to use it on was postponed. (ugh!) I'm 5'7" and about 140lbs (muscular but a lot of my weight is in upper legs/butt).

These are really nice. I hike in the woods with my dogs every day, wearing Hunter boots which are definitely not known for their warmth, and these socks really make a difference. I love Smartwool socks. They are not cheap, and they don't last forever, but they are wonderfully warm, which is the excuse I use to buy them.

The collar keeps its shape. Not too high. I personally would love it if the collar was an inch higher but I have a long neck. Fits perfectly under other layers. The off white color actually seems to have some pinkish colored stripes. Very subtle and it all blends together to create a neutral shade.

My favorite socks for wearing around the house, sleeping in or use with muck boots. BUT I only got this pair as it was a gift because the darn things (as seems true of all Smartwool socks, and we’ve had many pairs in different models) wear out quickly and develop holes on the bottoms. My DT socks don’t wear out but are not nearly as comfortable.
