Women's Smooth-Knit Merino Socks
Warm & comfy but wear out
These socks feel great -- they're soft and warm and stay up without leaving painful dents in my (average-sized) calves. I love wearing them and have bought many pairs. However, I wish the toes were reinforced, because they develop holes way too soon.

Plus size NOT plus
The plus size version of these socks is NOT plus sized, in either the smooth or cable style. I bought two pair of plus size knee highs at the store in Vermont a couple of years ago and they fit great, but these newer ones are not high enough, and bind at the top. I have noticed that a lot of companies have been skimping on the quality and amount of fabric used in their products, I presume to save money. But I did not expect that from VCS.

The dye comes out of these socks when washed
The first time I washed these socks, I washed them with gray towels. The socks were brown and black. My gray towels had brown and black dye on them. It has been decades since I had the dye come out of new clothes. The second time, I washed them with some cleaning towels, and again the dye came out of the socks. The socks are very warm and since I live in the north, I kept them. I will have to hand wash them until they stop bleeding out dye.

Great knee-high socks
It's getting harder and harder to find knee-high wool socks. I have been wearing socks like these for most of my life and can't imagine winter without them. The 3 pairs I bought from Vermont Country Store are lovely quality and nice and warm.

I have navy and black. They stay up, are warm and look nice with business casual pants.

These socks are so comfortable and soft
I bought five pairs of socks and I love them. They are so soft and comfortable. The keep your legs warm and don't fall down. They wash beautifully too. I am so glad I bought them and would highly recommend them. I plan to buy more of them.

I live in Wisconsin and it has been a very cold winter. Regular trouser socks are not warm enough when your high temperature is only 1. These socks are very soft and warm. I ordered the plus size and they fit easily over my calf and are comfortable on all day. They keep my feet and calves toasty.
