Feel Good Friday: Farm to Feet

feel good friday farm feet to socks
This column is usually reserved for companies who work with charities making the world a better place. But this week we are taking a little exception. Farm to Feet is a new line of socks made entirely in the U.S.A.  And we know how badly Americans and American farmers need work these days, therefore they are definitely making us feel good!

Developed by the family who owns Nester Hosiery in Mount Airy, North Carolina the company uses:

– American grown and processed Merino Wool

-US nylon and elastic raw materials

-US yarn spinning

-US packaging materials and printing

-US point-of-sale displays

-US Workers

Everyone wave their flags and sing!

They also work with ranchers who are part of the American Sheep Industry; they get the wool moving into the US supply chain. You can read more about these guys on the handsome packaging and on the site.

Now more about the socks. We have been sporting some of the lighter pairs around this summer and we have to say, they are no joke. They stay up, breathe, and have a nice cushion that goes a long way after traipsing around town for the day.

We were hesitant about wool in the summer, but it wicks moisture keeping you dry and comfortable and it is a temperature regulator keeping you cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter (just think of the sheep wearing it all summer!).

And it doesn’t itch, which is a problem we have had with other wool socks. That is because they use high grade Merino wool that has long silky fibers that are soft against your skin.

Farm to Feet are available on www.NesterSocks.com.

Bonus! All Manual readers get 20% off their first pair of socks when they enter the code:  E6YD-VKDU-QRV0 when purchasing on the site.
