Mario Lungo (wool/cotton)
Our absolute favourite light high socks. These socks are made from 90% undyed wool with 10% organic cotton. The cotton is cleverly blended on the inside making them ideal for people who cannot wear wool next to the skin. They are much warmer than pure cotton and fine enough to be suitable for everyday shoes.
- 90% undyed wool
- 10% organic cotton
- These should be ideally hand washed (or machine washed on a delicate cycle at 30° with a gentle wool detergent).
- Do not tumble, dry clean, iron or bleach
- Hang to dry
Footwear could have a major influence on the lifetime of your socks. If the insides or insoles of your shoes are lumpy or worn it could damage your socks more easily.
Wear your wool socks once every 2-3 days allowing wrinkles to smooth out and fibers to recover naturally. No need to wash after every wear.
Put cedar balls, lavender or other moths protecting material to your socks drawer to prevent them from early deterioration.
Take good care of your feet. It can prevent snags and tears on your socks.
Available in sizes from 35 to 47

*There are a few elastane strings on top to help socks stay in place. If you have any allergic reaction to any material or fiber, please let us know upfront before placing an order.
In addition, if you have concerns regarding elastane and its environmental impact, please remove it when you believe your socks are no longer helpful and send/bring it back to the retailer or send it directly to us. We are working hard to find a bio-degradable alternative but in the meantime, repetitive use of elastane is the most sustainable option available. We will donate used elastane to the manufacturers of recycled polymer products.
We also recommend hand washing to prolong the life of your socks and the small amount of elastic used.
