Icebreaker Merino wool fabrics are naturally lightweight, breathable and highly insulating, providing an extraordinarily effective means of regulating your body temperature. In cold conditions, the fibres trap millions of tiny pockets of air to insulate your body from the cold. In hot conditions the fibres transport sweat and water vapour away from your body to keep you cool. The fibres also naturally inhibit the growth of bacteria that cause odours so you can wear the garments for days without the need to wash them.
The Women's Hike Lite Sock is designed for year-round hiking. It has thoughtfully placed medium cushioning to give you ample comfort in the critical impact areas around the sole, heel and toe without excess weight and bulk. An anatomically designed toe box optimises the fit. A mesh zone along the top of the foot allows air get to your feet. Compression zones support your instep, Achilles and ankle and the toe seam is as flat as possible to prevent the chafing that gives you blisters.
