I don't know if they are hypoallergenic or not, but wool tends to make my skin itch. I have never had a problem with the wool content in these socks. I have never noticed these socks to give off an odor. If any odor would develop I would suggest washing them and check your feet for foot problems.

Question

How are you supposed to wash them?

Any special instructions or just throw them in the wash with everything else?

Can you wash them in the washer or is it hand wash only?

Can you dry them in the dryer, or is it line dry?

answer 1
Packaging suggests "Machine wash warm, like colors, no bleach. Tumble dry, no heat.

Okay, now knowing laundry, I would say these will hold up in the wash just fine (but I wouldn't risk washing on hot) just turn inside out before washing. However, the instruction for drying with no heat suggest these would shrink (of course, they are wool) and does it really make sense to run your dryer for one pair of socks or if you dry them with the rest of the load, it would take FOREVER with no heat so best bet just lay them flat or hang to air dry.

Me personally, I have only hand washed these only because I have other brands of wool socks that require this and I just do them all together.

To dry, I wring them out trying to stretch as little as possible by rolling them up first then wringing so that they aren't stretched out when they dry and end up loose. I turn them inside out if not already and I just toss them over my shower curtain rod, no special care and they are dry in half a day or so depending on indoor temps, etc.

So, wash them with regular clothes on cold or warm should be fine, no hot, but be sure to take them out and dry separately either laying flat somewhere on a towel or hanging over a rack even, where ever there is space.

Wool shrinks if you change temperatures, so they will shrink a bit unless your wash and rinse are the same temperature. Good luck with that. I wash them cold, rinse them cold (machine) toss them in the dryer with a softener sheet until they steam, and hang them up to finish overnight. They are pretty much the same size after that process as they were to start. 3 years and still going strong.

XL works for my 12.5 ,wide (EE) boots.
answered 2 years, 3 months ago

Kawliga
answer 8
Here is the sizing listed on the packaging for all 3 sizes:
Medium - Men's shoe size 5-9
Ladies shoe size 6-10
Large - Men's shoe size 9-12
Ladies shoe size 10-12
X-Large Men's shoe size 12-15
(no ladies listed)

Long story short, if these are for a man, he is actually exactly a 12 shoe size (putting him in between the large and xlarge sizes) just take into consideration as to their intended use. In workboots, if they are already snug or not a lot of extra room, these are pretty thick socks and will add a layer making already snug boots downright tight. So, go with the LARGE if there is concern with whether workboots or whatever shoes they will be worn with will still fit with an added layer of socks. My boyfriend works in the outdoors and had to layer socks for warmth anyway so bought his boots with that in mind and had the extra room. With these socks (him being a size 13, using the XL size) no longer had to layer more than one pair of normal socks but these took up the same amount of room in the boot.

Don't worry about the 12 being too small I am a women's 10.5 also in between sizes and after wearing the large for a day or two just around the house, noticed that they stretch just a bit and get slightly looser as you wear them so I actually went back for the medium which states is only for up to womens 10 and they looked small in store but turns out, they are the perfect fit after that first hour or two of use and not even slightly snug at all. So, These will actually get looser so the large should be fine especially if there is no extra room in the shoe. I tried squeezing my foot into my slim fitting slip on dress shoe with these socks and it was very snug and uncomfortable. No issues with gym shoes or hiking boots though.

Just to be clear, when I say these stretch and get looser, note that its only in the footbed and heel and toe, they stay up on the calf and fitted to the arch where the band is even if you are wearing a size too big so no issue there of sock slippage and rolling down the leg.
