The Silverpoint Comfort Hiker is a mid weight trekking sock made of a yarn called Drytex. This yarn is a mix of sythetic fibres and cotton. There is a silver antimicrobial treatment added to the yarn to help combat nasty smells and the socks wick moisture very well too.
The socks are nicely cushioned all around the foot and are very wool like in their feel, but because there is no actual wool in them they are less likely to cause any irritation or allergies.
These mid calf height socks provide a very good value alternative to a traditional wool trekking sock.
