Merino Wool Socks
These Merino wool and lambswool socks are perfect for when temperatures begin to drop. This everyday sock is thin enough to be worn in your shoes and is ideal when worn inside your city boots. Merino wool is softer and warmer than regular wool and the mixture of lambswool and merino results in an everyday sock that is comfortable, warm and wicks moisture.
- Material | 60% Merino wool and lambswool, 18% Polypropylene, 15% Nylon, 5% Stretch Nylon, 2% Spandex
- Care | Wash inside out
- Made in Canada (where it gets really cold)
Why We Chose Them | Bonnetier is a Montréal based company specializing in wool clothing and socks. They create for outdoor enthusiasts, who are pushing limits and need clothing that will keep up with them. They source ethically produced EMA certified wool from New Zealand that creates durable, long-lasting clothing. We love their cozy socks that keep our feet warm using sustainable fibres that we know will us a long time. They are some of the most popular items picked up by guests as gifts, or by the people who receive them, fall in love, and have to come back for more.
Our sewing facilities are located in Vancouver, B.C. We love having them so close to home. Producing locally means we stay connected to the lifecycle of our garments, and the people who make them.
We can visit the facilities any time we need to and have cultivated close relationships with the people responsible for making our clothes. We are a people-first brand and we feel good knowing that our products are produced ethically in facilities that value their employees. We value them too!
Navigating the textile world is tricky. It’s not currently set up for the most sustainable of supply chains. We are working all the time to find better ways to approach production and make the best choices we can. In the end, our hope is that every one of our pieces creates meaningful conversation around minimizing our environmental impact and keeping our Oceans cleaner. This is how we plan to be a part of lasting change leading us towards a more conscious future.
women's size chart
Can we talk about size charts for a minute?
All SALT clothing is designed in-house. Which means we reference our own bodies when creating garments. and that means these clothes are designed to fit all kinds of shapes and figures and our sizing is reflective of that. Grabbing a "standard size chart" from somewhere online was a big no for us!
We quickly found that creating a size chart is no easy task. No one's body lines up into one perfectly straight column of numbers. We're curvy, narrow, large and small in all kinds of places. Our size chart is the result of a collaborative effort and discussion between the women on our team, our customers, and friends; Real people with all sorts of body types and fit preferences.
Go with the size your measurements most align with. With that said, a size guide should be a tool, not a rule. When sizing yourself for our clothes, we recommenced paying special attention to the area you have the most difficulty finding that comfortable fit in (We've affectionately started calling it the "trigger-spot".) and choose the size that fits accurate to you in that area.
Keep in mind all of our women's tops are made to be more fitted in the shoulders and bust, and flow from the body at the waist and hips. We've found this to be the most flattering cut for the majority of people, and it's a style our customers can rely on.
tips for measuring yourself:
- Use a soft tape measure. If you don't have one, use a string and reference it against a measuring tape on a flat surface.
- have someone help you to ensure you are getting the most accurate measurement.
- do not tighten the measuring tape or allow it to slack too much as you measure. You want a smooth, and snug fit.
- reference the table below if you are unsure where a measurement should be taken from. From top to bottom these figures display: Shoulders, Bust/Chest, Waist, Hips, Inseam
