What absolutely terrific thermal winter socks! I LOVE them. I LIVE in them! And after buying HeatHolders long thermal socks I wouldn’t buy any other brand, because frankly - they’re the best & why mess with perfection 👌?! REGARDING THE FIT: I’m a shorter than average person (5ft 2&1/2” or 158-ish cms) so they come up to just under my knees and keep my feet & the the whole of my lower legs toasty warm. I’m standard size 7 (Australian) shoe size, as a guide and they fit true to size. THE ‘FEEL’ OF THE FABRIC: First of all they are stretchy, which is good as they stay up and feel ‘comfy’ on. The INside of the socks are of a super soft thick plush material while the outside has a subtle ‘knitted weave’ that looks nice. Knowing that winter socks take a little longer to dry, I bought 3 pairs so I’d always have a spare while the others are gently laundered. LAUNDERING wise — I use a mesh-washing bag to protect them from pilling but DO put them in to the washing machine on a REGULAR cycle because they’re protected by the washing-bag & they’ve been perfectly fine that way. DRYING - I don’t put them in a dryer (because I don’t want them to pill!) but put them inside the house in a sunny spot ... they dry really quickly anyway that way! (Another reason why I bought a ‘spare pair’). I honestly can’t speak highly enough of these socks, that’s how great they are! They make SUCH a difference in winter keeping my feet lovely a warm. I love them!!
