The Wigwam Merino Lite Hiker is a soft, lightweight hiking sock for four-season comfort. The Lite Hiker is constructed from Merino Wool. Merino Wool has all the characteristics of classic wool, such as its insulation and wicking properties, but is much softer and comfortable. This wool does not itch and is shrink-treated to hold its size and shape long after repeated washings. An elasticized arch, ultra smooth lin-toe closure and "Y" heel pocket make the the Wigwam Merino Light Hiker an extremely comfortable sock.
