Warm socks for hunter wellies

Hunter wellies are a favourite and well know brand of wellies worn by many countryside loving people. I have had many pairs of hunter wellies over the years in green and navy. They are great at keeping your feet dry in all sorts of weather.

Wellies might not keep your feet warm.

Hunter wellies may not necessarily keep your feet warm but they are great in wet muddy conditions. I am often asked for wellie boot liners. Most of these are synthetic fleecy liners which fit inside the boot and fold over the top. They sound like a good solution. You will still need to wear socks with these. However, due to the liners being made from synthetic materials they will not keep your feet warm at all. If you take into account that you are also wearing a pair of socks, you are restricting the air flow and will end up with a tighter pair of wellies and cold sweaty feet. Not a pleasant thought or experience at all.

How to keep your feet warm in wellies.

To keep your feet warm and cosy, you need to have a pair of knee high merino wool socks.

Our merino wool socks are:

  • Made from 80% merino wool. This is a high wool content and will keep your feet warm and cosy.
  • Soft and cosy. Merino wool is incredibly soft and highly breathable. Your feet won’t end up sweaty and cold at all.
  • Our knee high merino socks also stay up. You won’t have to find your socks hiding at the bottom of your hunter wellies.

You can then enjoy staying out longer in the countryside.
