One of the guiding principles of Outlier is that we only make things that are clearly better than what is already out there. We'd had merino socks on our minds for a while, but it wasn't until our sock knitting partners down in North Carolina introduced us to their German connect that we knew it was on.
For our merino tops we always go straight to the source, to New Zealand, for that good pure, 17.5 merino. But knitting socks is a different game entirely and almost all merino socks on the market use a rougher merino in the 22-23 micron range. It took some convincing, but we finally got the knitting factory to connect us with something even finer. It was well worth the wait because what they brought us blew our minds; a 15.5 micron yarn, so buttery soft and fine we were hooked immediately. This is the sort of yarn that is generally only found in the world's most expensive suits, but we just wanted to put our feet in it. The Megafine Merino Socks were born.
Merino wool works its magic on your feet just like anywhere else you wear it. It's temperature regulating, wicking and bacterially static so you can wear them longer between washes. A killer 15.5 micron merino deserves a design to match, so we went ham on the details. High snap elastane so they stay up. Nylon plated at the heel and toe so they last longer. Terry knit merino on the inside to keep you cozy. Mesh knit on top to keep air circulating. A drop stitch seamless toe keeps them comfortable all the way till the end. Stick your foot in and try them, we think you'll understand.
