I am just now starting to retire the Greenyarn socks that I bought some time in the first half of 2010 - I have used them nearly on a daily (!) basis - I have clearly managed to rotate through the stock on a consistent basis since all socks have started to wear through the heal nearly at the same time.

The first one to go was the pair with the red pullstrap - I only bought one of that pair and I think it was too easy to grab that in my sock drawer. The 5 or so "anonymous" black and grey pairs have evidently gotten equal use, they are all "dying" now. Only the heal though, otherwise fully serviceable - nice and stretchy.

It probably helps that we rarely use a dryer, nearly always hang outside to dry.

I am thinking about writing a piece on these socks for the publication I work for - we focus on total cost of ownership versus price, and I thought this would be a good story.

I'm off to buy some new socks - hoping to see that you have an all-black line!

I just bought another 6 - but I am a heavy and frequent user - the typical store socks - so called "premium" - would normally last a few weeks.

I suspect that I bought mine in the spring of 2010 - so they survived 1.5 years of my fairly extreme use.

I was training for Triathlon and were introduced to these socks by my friend last year. I usually go through socks every 3 months, and even Gold Toe, Smartwool and other top brands do not last. I was surprised when I got these socks. The knitting was a lot denser, however, the socks felt cool when I put them on as they wick moisture fast!

The socks gave a lot of support and cushioning, and I got no blisters during practice and race unlike any other socks. I love wearing these socks for Marathon or going for a long cycling trip. Though they look pricey, they last very long, and are well worth the money. Best socks ever made.

Summer is here, and the pair of Short Plus Socks that I bought 4 years back are still functional, but I finally decided to get a new set of socks. I found the new Sole-R to be simply amazing. I can't believe socks could ever be better. They are dry and keep my feet fresh and comfortable.

I went on a holiday however, and ran out of socks, and when I bought regular socks and walked in London for a day, I got blisters! I have never had blisters since I switched to Greenyarn Socks. I guess that taught me a lesson to bring Greenyarn socks whereever I go!
