For wool sock fans, the Wooleator is a must-own sock. The Wooleator is a thin, low-bulk sock equally comfortable for cycling or casual wear, designed to keep feet warm and dry in winter, but thin enough to keep feet cool and dry in summer. This sock is a blend of Merino wool, nylon and lycra. This lighter weight wool blend is ideal for 4-season use, and is moisture resistant and naturally antibacterial; thinner than a Woolie Boolie. These have a 3-inch cuff.

Cosmetic Blemish Option- these are the factory seconds that have nothing structurally wrong but they do have some stray colors and stitching oddities and arrive from DeFeet in special bags marked SLIGHTLY IMPERFECT. These are always the staff favorites, because here at Lizard HQ, we know that perfection is the enemy of the good and at our core we are imperfect humans anyway. We like to see what the imperfection may be that got it pulled off the line and put in the 'special box.'. It's usually a missing color band on the lizard, or a splash of pink thread instead of purple, or maybe the lizard is fine but the DeFeet sheep has nuclear eyes. Cosmetic Blems do not have the fancy retail display card packaging. These are socks afterall, and we're hard on socks, so saving a few bucks is fine by us. If a slightly imperfect sock is available in your size, go for it!
