Merinowool is renowned for its inherent itch-free softness and ability to wick perspirationwhile retaining heat when wet. That's why it was an easy choice for Pearl touse this natural material on its mid-weight, long-cuff cycling sock … but,merino on its own does have a few drawbacks. To counter those, Pearls designersblend it with nylon and spandex.

This is most apparent at the arch, and the rest of the Elite panels are positioned to avoid hotspots,including the asymmetrical, left and right mesh vents.
