Sock of the Month Club: Deciding Between Cotton, New Wool, and Cashmere


The sock of the month club offers three options, each with its own benefits and drawbacks: cotton, new wool, or cashmere socks. As you select your next monthly shipment, here’s what to consider when deciding between the different sock materials so you can choose which one works best for you.


The benefits of cotton

Cotton is one of the most common materials for socks. It's soft, breathable and does not itch. It is also affordable which is a nice bonus. The downside is that cotton doesn't last as long as other materials (like wool) so it will need to be replaced more often than if you were wearing wool socks.


The benefits of wool

Wool is a great material for socks because it's soft and warm. Plus, wool is an extremely breathable fabric that helps with sweat management. It's not too thick or thin, so you won't have to worry about your socks feeling too restrictive. And since wool can absorb up to 30% of its own weight in moisture before feeling damp - it's also a good choice for people with sweaty feet!


The benefits of cashmere

Cashmere is a natural fiber that comes from goats. It's often used in clothing because it has a luxurious texture that you don't see in other materials. The fibers are also fine so they retain heat well, which means you can wear them year-round. You can also get cashmere wool blended with other fibers like cotton or wool to make it more affordable.
