Marcoliani socks fit US 8-11 (EU 41-45).

Wool is the best material for socks

Wool can absorb moisture almost one-third of its own weight, so your feet stay cool in the summer. The shape of the fibers also retains air, which keeps your feet warm in the winter. Cotton, in comparison, does not wick moisture and is an ineffective insulator.

Other remarkable features of wool include:

  • Luxurious softness
  • More colorfast
  • Inhibits growth of odor-causing bacteria
  • Static electricity resistant


These are quite sturdy compared to most other wool socks and do not require any special treatment; you can put them in a dryer, send it off to the cleaners, etc. But for best results, machine wash in cold water, and hang dry.
