Just as we have our favorite bibs, we definitely have our favorite socks. In cold weather, when we head for the sock drawer we go looking for a pair of socks made from Merino wool. Our comfort, and sometimes our sanity, depends on it.The Castelli Merino Socks have some technical details that make them as good as any we've ever seen. Ribs at the ankle and compression elastic at the arch keep the socks from bunching up and cutting off circulation or causing blisters. The 9cm cuff is slightly longer than the traditional 7.5cm cuff, giving the socks a stylish look that aficionados of either long or short cuffs should find appealing.The Castelli Merino Socks come in Black and in three sizes -- Small/Medium, Large/X-Large, and XX-Large.

I'm looking to try some Merino wool for a base layer instead of the synthetic stuff I have been using. Where are some good places to get some deals on it? I've searched around a little bit and it seems like Serra Trading Post has some decent deals. Anyone have any other recommendations?

Thanks.... Sage :DRead More »

A month earlier I read in the Fatbike forum here of an Aussie rider doing an epic solo ride in the north, and mentioned Merino wool clothing. ... Read More »
