Smartwool is dedicated to promoting the value, restorative, and essential value of spending time outside. In 1994, the founders started making socks to keep their toes warm while skiing. This led them to discover the benefits of Merino wool. Unlike the synthetic socks they were wearing at the time, this was soft (softer than any wool they had ever felt), moisture-wicking, thermoregulating, sustainable, and odor-neutralizing, helping keep feet dry, comfortable, and warm longer. In fact, it works so well that they use it in almost everything they make. Smartwool carries clothing from the tip of your head with trending hats to the bottom of your toes with their socks.
Prices vary by products available at www.smartwool.ca.
