Pro-Gear Bison/Silk Blend Crew Sock
This "Herd Wear" Crew Sock is a shorter version of our Technical Boot Sock. It has the same terry loop cushioned foot bed and vented and structured instep for smooth fit, but in a crew height (and without the shin cushion). A sock the whole year around (well, maybe not in the dead heat of summer .. but at least 10 months out of the year). Comfortable, plenty warm but plenty of breathing, as well. You should not experience any "wet feet" from being overly warm or enclosed. Excellent moisture retention and wicking.
Bison/silk/nylon/spandex. Nylon over-plaited toe and heel for reinforcement in the critical wear points of any sock. Machine washable cold. Knit for Buffalo Gold and The Buffalo Wool Company with our bison/silk yarn in Osage, IA, by Fox River Mills. Great sock company!
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE "COLOR" ON THE HEEL AND TOE ARE ONLY FOR SIZE IDENTIFICATION: Red is extra large; blue is large; yellow is medium and brown is small ... that is the only way they come, so if, for example you order a "medium", expect that the heel and toe will be yellow.
Let me also explain the percentages of each yarn that will be on the sock packaging. We send Fox River our 50% bison down/ 50% silk yarn. They design and knit the socks and add nylon in the toe and heel and spandex to create the final sock. They have to calculate by weight (not by yardage) how much of each yarn and fiber are in each batch (and each size) of our socks. So ... while the base yarn that touches your foot is still half bison/half silk, the total percentages have to include the construction materials .. the nylon and spandex ... which brings the total bison and silk percentages down. Hope that is understandable.
