We’ve been using Darn Tough socks for some time and really rate both their style and performance.  Their extreme attention to manufacturing detail, when combined with the finest quality Merino wool, and you have some seriously great socks.  We even included some of their socks in our recent 5 of the best which you can read here.  

But, alongside that, we really value the brand’s ethos and history.  We had read some info about this on their website here, but then had the chance to have a good chat with them at the recent Outdoor Trade Show (OTS) to get a bit more detail on their backstory.

Darn Tough is a family owned business that has been making socks for almost 40 years in their Northfield mill based in the Green Mountains of Vermont. Every part of the production process takes place under the same roof and they are firmly committed to this as it offers them the ultimate in quality management.

The skill of producing socks has been handed down through three generations and making socks is clearly in their blood. Also in their blood is making no compromises to quality.  They use the finest quality ethically sourced Merino wool and produce their socks on 168 needle machines allowing 1441 stitch per square inch construction.  

This creates hard wearing socks that keep their shape and they can be carefully crafted to fit the shape of the foot.  Darn Tough are so confident of their product quality that they offer a lifetime warranty.  How great it is to see a family company producing market leading products and standing by them.  

Anyway, after all the OTS chat we wanted to share some Darn Tough socks for Peak Mountaineers to use.  Fortunately, Darn Tough agreed.  They have generously offered 10 pairs (5 pairs of women’s socks and 5 pairs of men’s socks) of their superb Light Hiker socks for us to give away.  We’ve found this model to be the perfect option for general warm weather outdoor activity use.
