Most of you are familiar with socks made from Merino Wool. Over tens years ago, Patty and Peter started a company called Smartwool. Smartwool brought on board a full line of socks and base layer clothing made from Merino wool. After a period of success, they both took a break and, if I am correct, Smartwool was sold to Timberland.
I will tell you that I still own several Smartwool socks and base layer tops from when the Dukes owned the company. I have also turned many cyclist on to their products over the years; you start wearing socks made from Merino wool, you will not go back to anything else. A few years back, the "itch" returned for Patty and Peter - so to speak - and they started Point6, a Merino wool outlet.
I was pleased when I found out that the Dukes were back in business. I now have several pair of socks for work and cycling that I purchased from Point6. You will not be disappointed! These are the most comfortable socks you could wear. Not only that, you will not get the odor you experience with polyester socks.
I do not usually promote products, but the company offers well made socks that are comfortable and hold up very well. Please take an opportunity to visit their website "point6.com". Hopefully, there may be some base layer products in the future as well.
