Made on antique sock machines in service since 1928, still going strong. Your feet won’t get too hot or too cold no matter what the day brings. Actually you probably won’t think of your feet at all. You can wear these pure wool socks for days (if you need to) and still be polite to the nose, more importantly to other peoples noses - less washing has got to be environmentally good! Made with sustainable and renewal materials. The health benefits of the loose top can not be understated, even if tight socks don’t annoy you yet, every time you wear them they are undermining your legs vascular health. Will our pure wool Mongrel Socks live forever? Nuh, nope, no way. Nothing surer is that they will wear out but are darnable, we know that's disappointing, but it's true. We leave out the often nasty petro-chemical synthetics commonly used to enhance sock wear time, because of this they won't last forever and nor will they ever be found fouling up our natural environment for a millenium.
I've never owned socks this good.By: Chrisentiae Saint-Piaf on 21 May 2019Very impressive socks. The fit is perfect and luxurious. These are the type of socks you darn/patch, if/when needed, rather than throw away. I cannot remember ever owning socks this good or even close to this good. As my socks just arrived, I haven't done much more than be really impressed. The colors are really good. I chose the Deep Purple and Very Green. Their rainbow ones were gone ... hopefully they will bring them back and some new designs/colors. A dedicated pink, would be nice too. I do intend to buy more socks in the future. I have done a lot of research into socks before buying these. I didn't find anything like the quality, and quality is specific, not just marketing. Heaps of socks are expensive, but I could never justify buying them. My mongrel socks are an investment for years to come. They are also a perfect gift.
Tradie-proof socks do exist!13 November 2017My husband is a concreter and is incredibly hard on his work clothes. He's been wearing Pure Mongrels for over a year now and they still look as good as the day I bought them. No holes, no stretching, vibrant colour. I can't think of a single other piece of clothing he has that still looks this good a year on (including his "good clothes" :D ) His big brand work socks are trashed within a few months. Slowly transitioning all his socks to Mongrels, which have the added benefit of being less aroma-inducing on his feet! Thanks for such an awesome product :)
Best SocksBy: Karen on 2 August 2016I have brought a few pairs of socks from Mongrel Tasmanis socks. 5 pairs of bamboo socks and 1 pair of pure wool mongrel socks and I love them so much. Great service and they get them in the mail fast. I love these socks and so do my boys so know I need to buy some more as they take mine.
The only good thing about WinterBy: Suzanne on 22 June 2016I absolutely love my mongrels. They are absolutely the only good thing about Winter. Keep up the good sock production!
Best socks everBy: Leah on 16 July 2014My partner and I have four pairs of these between us which we wear non stop around the house all winter, they're just as warm as slippers but way more comfortable.
