SmartWool Socks & Clothing
We love SmartWool. There, I said it. Rock/Creek staff and customers alike are in love, and we think you will be too. So, exactly what is SmartWool?
SmartWool is merino wool, which means it’s different than the itchy sweater your grandma used to make you wear. Merino is a natural fiber, derived from special merino sheep in the New Zealand highlands. The SmartWool PhD merino blend provides a premium, natural alternative to synthetic fabrics -- it doesn’t itch like regular wool, dries quickly, breathes well and never, ever stinks.
SmartWool socks were the original game-changer. In the beginning, no one believed that a wool sock could be anything but itchy… until they challenged skiers to try them! You’ve probably heard of these socks before, and they’re available in a complete range of styles to match with your outdoor activity of choice. On our site you’ll find SmartWool hiking socks, running socks, outdoor socks and more.
But why stop with socks? Try the microweight tee and midweight hoody, and you may never wear our old base layer and fleece jacket again. Remember, the attributes that make SmartWool socks so good are even better in SmartWool outdoor clothing. It’s so breathable that many trail runners prefer it to polyester tech tees, and it’s so funk-resistant that climbers and mountaineers prefer it for expeditions where one set of gear has to be worn day after day.
