Mining Boot Socks Made for work
This sock is designed for use with boots in the rigorous conditions of mines or smelters. Its pure wool terry-knit inner layer provides added blister protection, and aids moisture removal, without increasing foot temperature. The lower leg of the sock is knitted tighter to follow the shape of a normal leg and ankle, decreasing the possibility of its slipping into the boot without having to use elastane which would decrease moist airflow up the leg. A nylon outer layer provides durability and protects the wool inner layer.
This sock has a 1 x 1 rib top with elastane in the welt only. This construction allows greater sideways stretch and is technically a better construction than an in turned welt top. The sock can be folded over the top of the boot for comfort and moisture removal.

Made from Single Source Fibres
If you asked what was the single most important factor to our production capability – its the origin of our single source fibres.
As a startup its almost impossible to gain access to an ethically sourced Merino fibre that is always consistent, insanely comfortable and grown in way that was aligned to our company values. This is where we learnt that all merino wools were not the same. These hard earned lessons now translate directly into our uniquely Australian Merino Active & Outdoor apparel;
- Single Source direct from the Grower
- Knitted & Dyed in Melbourne
- Cut & Made in Australia
