I haven't purchased socks in a while, and it's getting kind of dire.  In the past couple years every store around me has stopped carrying 100% cotton socks.  I tried some that were something like 85% cotton, and they made my feet so hot and sweaty and uncomfortable -- gross!  I've been looking online and I don't see many 100% cotton socks available.  Am I mistaken, have I been buying 96% cotton 4% spandex or something all these years without realizing it?

 

Please hit me with your favorite socks (for mama and kids).  I prefer not to spend a fortune on them, especially for the kids.

 

TIA

A couple of years ago someone gave me a couple of pairs of smartwool socks for Christmas, and I cannot wear cotton socks anymore, cotton feels clammy.  I live in New England, and we have an llbean outlet nearby where we can get them discounted, and sometimes on sale.  I pick up one or two when they are cheap enough.  They are pricey, though, even when they are "cheap".  I encourage you to just try one pair.  I swear, the first few weeks I wore them, I just walked around smiling stupidly because of my socks.

Thank you for your response.  I have had several pairs of Smartwool socks.  If I wear them with shoes my feet get too hot, except when it's very cold outside.  I need cotton for when it's not the dead of winter.  Also, my skin is sensitive, and I get itchy in wool if I get too warm while wearing it.  Bummer for me.

I see that your question is really old, but if you are still looking, I have a couple of answers for you.  Dr. Leonard's and Carol Wright both sell Buster Brown 100% cotton socks.  Also Starcrest of California sells 100% cotton socks that look and feel exactly the same, but they are are little cheaper.  I buy these in white only from any of these, and these are the ONLY socks I wear.
