Goat Socks are made in the most part from mohair which is one of the most versatile textile fibres.

Many of its characteristics are similar to wool, but a key benefit is that it is finer and does not have the microscopic scales that make wool itchy, which is much better for those of us who are have sensitive skin. Mohair is warm in winter as it has excellent insulating properties, while remaining cool in summer due to its moisture wicking properties. It is durable, naturally elastic, flame resistant and crease resistant. a luxury fibre, like cashmere, angora and silk, the raw material is more expensive than most wool.

Customer Reviews

The most durable socks ever, and therefore cheaper than cotton or wool socks in the long run. Review by Henry
Odour free -- I wash my socks by themselves at 30 degrees with no washing liquid at all; they come out soft and fresh-smelling nevertheless.
I dislike the nylon content and would much prefer what would be the absolutely perfect sock: angora mohair and silk.
Unfortunately not available in long length in natural, which is the best for preventing mosquito bits. When hand washed especially, the fibres become fluffy and mosquitoes cannot land on one's foot in order to bite it. Light colours are best for putting mosquitoes off, so I make do with the long camel ones (as with the natural short socks, mosquitoes can bite your lower leg).
They seem to have been a huge success Review by Andrea
I bought various types of goat socks (comfort, plain and long) for the family at New Year. They seem to have been a huge success. Both my mum and sister have ordered more. My 19 year old daughter calls these real socks, and says they are the only socks to keep her feet warm when she is sitting still at the computer. My 16 year old, outdoor type son was very skeptical about his; but I noticed he was wearing them and, when asked, he admitted that he had decided to try them anyway and they actually did keep his feet warmer and more comfortable in his walking boots than his other walking socks. Now hoping to get a pair of my own on my birthday!
Everyone agrees they are a winner from my 10 year old son to 46 year old brother! Review by Fleur
I have just returned from North Wales where I was with family who received some of these socks as Christmas gifts-everyone agrees they are a winner from my 10 year old son to 46 year old brother!
