FAQs about Merino Wool & Mohair Socks
Are the socks itchy like regular wool?
No! It shares many characteristics with wool, but it does not have the microscopic scales that make wool itchy.
Does mohair shrink as fast as wool?
No. Its smooth fibers do not felt or become matted together; mohair fabrics shrink much less than wool.
Will my socks smell if the weather is hot?
No. Due to intrinsic natural antibacterial properties, mohair is uniquely odor free and resistant, requiring less cleaning.
Will they wrinkle?
Garments made with mohair hold their shape, resisting wrinkling and odors.
Are they elastic?
Mohair is very elastic; it can be stretched up to 30%, and will spring back to shape; mohair garments resist wrinkling, stretching, or sagging.
