Rated 2 out of 5Â by Midwest custumer Too short!
I got the plus size, for my swollen calf on one leg, and it was plenty big enough. The problem is it's too short and won't stay up. I am slightly shorter than average for a woman, so these seem like they would be too short for any but the most petite. Disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by paka Love they way they feel
I love the larger size. I have large feet and women's socks often don't fit me, but these have proved wonderfully comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by AZterritory Good product
Needed high white/cream wool socks for a Spanish colonial living history outfit, virtually impossible to find. These are perfect, although may be a tad on the warm side in the summer.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by nancy&ron I love these socks
I have been wearing these smooth Knit Merino socks for a number of years. This year I ordered some for my husband and he loves them also. They keep our legs and feet snuggly warm.
My only complaint is: The past several years, the heels wear out much too quickly. Long before the rest of the socks.
Otherwise, we are very happy with this product. And will continue to place an order for them.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Cold feet, warm heart 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.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by jaques 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.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Susan03 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.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by charlottestein 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.
