If you're like us, you've found that most synthetic socks don't quite live up to all of the hype. For this reason, we've found ourselves going "au naturale" more and more often, which is why the new Castelli Mondrian Women's Socks are quickly becoming a year round classic around the office.
Castelli's Mondrian socks were entirely constructed from Merino wool. Merino is a wool sheared from a breed of sheep by the same name. It's long, fine fibers make it feel soft against the skin. However, the benefits don't stop there. Merino wool is what we call a "hydrophilic" fiber, meaning that it has the natural ability to positively interact with water. In fact, Merino is able to absorb as much as 30 percent of its weight before exuding the sensation of wetness. Additionally, it's naturally antimicrobial, so you'll experience next to no stink from the socks. This property is furthered by Merino's natural ability to disperse electrostatic charges. So, the Mondrian socks will pick up less dirt, grime, and lint in the first place.
The 9cm height of the Mondrian socks covers your ankles. But in the winter, they're tall enough to close the gap between your tights and shoes. This way, your skin is kept from being exposed.
