Good socks, not as cushy or thick as I was expecting for the cushiest option the company offers. I have other socks much thicker, but these are nice anyway, comfortable. Haven't had a chance to try them in winter yet. I sometimes wear two wool socks around here so... I'm not sure these will do the trick by themselves anyway, though they're supposedly the warmest Darn Tough offers. The Pacific NW wet cold is a beast. Other wool socks I have don't shrink in the dryer, but these ones do, I have to be careful to pick them out, one pair shrunk significantly the first time I dried them. I wore them and they stretched back out alright, but that doesn't help with longevity. I almost wished I would have gotten one size up so I could put them in the dryer but oh well. Thank you for socks.
