Unlike a thick winter coat or a crispy white button-down shirt, socks are the only piece of clothing we normally do not want to attract anyone’s attention – least of all ours. Being constantly aware of your footwear is bad news, after all.
Humans are creatures of comfort. No matter how excited we are to embark on a journey into the great wide open, uncomfortable shoes paired with itchy socks are a fast-track to ruin our good mood – with nasty residuals to boot.
Indeed, just a few hours of being dead on your feet can easily stretch into a long, painful week of dealing with bothersome blisters or even bruises.
Nature Knows Best
This is where Alles Mooi sock apparel comes in.
To South Africans, alles mooi means everything nice. Made from natural fibers such as mohair, bamboo, and wool, these socks are comfort-focused; snug on your feet while also keeping the skin dry and fresh.
Moisture management is one of the key factors that make Alles Mooi socks so popular among outdoor enthusiasts.
Thanks to the capillary structure of these carefully-chosen materials, they can disperse perspiration faster than ordinary cotton or merino wool. No strenuous activity is too big of a challenge for the wonderful wickabillity of mohair. It truly is a fiber to rely on.
Optics and Hunting: Alles Mooi Thermal Mohair Socks
Standing still for hours on end, waiting on the elusive game, is an exercise in both patience and resilience to the elements. But it’s that much harder to concentrate when sweating buckets inside your boots or, alternatively, worrying that a heavy ground frost might bite off one of your toes.
Hunters know that feeling all too well. Warding off extreme temperatures is a challenge on its own, but one that Alles Mooi can help you with.
We tested these socks for a couple of weeks and despite their deceptively fuzzy appearance, they are shockingly well thermally-balanced.
When winter cold overstayed its welcome, the socks kept our feet warm longer and with none of that cold sweat nonsense.
Sure, we knew that mohair is a natural insulator but it was still a surprise to experience the cool comfort of Alles Mooi socks during the first heatstroke of the spring season.
Clean and Comfortable
Now, let us explain. Yes, donning the same pair of socks day in, day out is generally frowned upon in the modern, scent-sensitive society. However.
Dedicated testing aside, there’s another rationale we’d like to point out in our defense for this extended wear time (with a couple of washes in-between, no worries).
These super-durable socks prevent bacteria build-up, skin chafing and stay odor-free.
It’s definitely something to keep in mind if you’re an avid explorer who fancies sleeping under the starry sky or enjoys embarking on long hikes where packing lightly is an absolute necessity.
Alles Mooi believes in function over fashion. Their socks are finely structured yet and won’t shrink down or lose shape even after numerous washes.
Many trekkers and mountain climbers call mohair a miracle fiber since it’s can be wrung, stretched and tugged on without it losing any fabric density or elasticity.
Threading Lightly on Earth
Last but not least, the creative minds behind Alles Mooi have an inspiring story to tell.
United by a deep affinity for sun, soil, and simplicity, this young and innovative company is a perfect culture blend of Slovene and South African backgrounds.
What’s remarkable is that this unique worldliness translates into Alles Mooi’s business practices.
Their socks are made from locally-sourced mohair, bamboo, and wool in South Africa as the company’s priority is sustainable development that ultimately benefits both the environment and the economy.
It’s important to be kind to your feet and, before anything else, to be mindful of the world that they thread on.
