First, we don’t make hats, gloves, base layer or soft shell. All we do, all we have ever done, is make socks. My family has been in the hosiery business for 3 generations. My father started Cabot Hosiery Mills in 1978 and for the past 36 years we have been making socks here, in the Green Mountains of Northfield, Vermont.
We introduced Darn Tough Vermont about 10 years ago in an effort to keep our mill alive and running, without having to send jobs off shore. We are interested in one thing. Producing the best possible socks the world has to offer. Just when we think we’ve arrived, we start over and improve what we’ve almost perfected. Little changes, small adjustments, a touch more of this or a drop less of that is what keeps us going. That willingness to never give up, to never be satisfied, to go for that next peak, is what we are all about.
We’d rather not do it than not do it well. It’s what separates us from every other sock out there. We are so confident in who we are and what we do that we back up our socks with an unconditional lifetime guarantee.
High Density Knitting
More knit stitches per inch equates to durability and cushioning without bulk.
From form fitting toe boxes to sculpted heel pockets and knit-in elastic support at the arch, our knitting techniques produce the finest fitting performance sock available.
Our custom count, shrink treated Merino wool enhances the comfort and durability that outdoor enthusiasts have come to expect from this fiber.
Because wool is not for everyone. We use an exclusive Coolmax® blend to create a sock with exceptional softness, durability and superior moisture management.
Form fitting to the contours of your calf, shin and ankle ensuring a custom fit.
Ribbed Ankle Support
No Slipping. No Bunching. Helps prevent blisters.
Elastic Arch Support
Knit into the arch of all of our socks to provide added endurance.
Ring Toe Construction
Terry loops surrounding the toe create a comfortable invisible seam.
