Motley Woollens is a small family run sock mill in Okotoks Alberta Canada, that manufactures the finest socks and leggings. No outsourcing to other countries, all production is done on the Motley site.
What is special about the Motley’s 100% Shetland wool socks?
These socks are old school Rugged, and amazing at wicking moisture away from your foot, making them the ideal choice as a hiking sock. We import our Shetland wool yarn from a mill in Scotland. This mill hand picks it Shetland wool from the Shetland Islands. The mill has been producing Shetland wool yarns from the same location for 300 years. They are known for producing the finest Shetland wool yarns in the world. The Shetland wool sock is very comfortable and unmatched in warmth and moisture wicking ability. The 100% Shetland wool sock does feel coarse to the touch when it is new, but it is not itchy, and gets softer with each washing.
Machine wash cold, gentle cycle, tumble dry low/medium heat. For best results hand wash and lay flat to dry.
Motley Woollens and the environment:
We will not sacrifice the environment for increased production or profits. All of our socks are made from all natural and renewable materials. Many of the production techniques are still done by hand to ensure the highest of quality in the socks, and to minimize our effect on the environment. Production expansion is accomplished by adding people not equipment. All of the fibres we use are either kept all natural without any harmful dyes, or coloured fibres are coloured using low impact dyes. No harmful chemicals are ever used and we even use a 100% all natural soap for the final finishing.

For my purposes, the Motley Expedition socks are just about perfect. They are roomy enough that I can pull them over light cotton inner socks, yet still fit my feet into the hiking (and snowshoe) boots I wear every day. (I live in the mountains.)
I was seeking wool socks that I could give as a gift this Christmas. Sean was kind enough to find time for me to pick up the socks instead of shipping, and even gave me a tour of his set-up! I was really happy to learn about the products Sean makes, and the socks feel incredible. I cannot recommend these enough!
love the socks! they are comfy and warm. the wool has a rougher feel than you might expect compared to merino or cashmere and they are thicker than most socks (compare say, the SmartWool thick socks). but they are definitely nice and warm. good purchase.
Absolutely amazing socks. Very worm, as described. I love them.
Wonderfully warm and comfortable.
These are easily some of the warmest and sturdiest wool socks I've ever owned, and the Nutmeg colour is fantastic. An item was missing from my order but Motley did a great job taking care of it and promptly shipped me the missing item, which arrived very quickly. They even threw in an extra item to make up for the trouble. I'll definitely be recommending Motley for wool socks to my friends and family.
The Motley Expedition socks have turned out to be exactly the kind of woolen sock I've been trying to locate for several years now. The crucial point is that I can use them as oversocks for snowshoe trips, since they are large enough and have sufficient stretch. But I like everything else about them too.
These are great socks - terrific quality, comfortable, warm. And amazing value for the money. Hiked 14k in them the other day and feet were warm and dry.
These are such wonderful socks, they are soft and thick, feels so warm and comfortable! Best investment for healthy feet, wool is such an extraordinary fiber with so many benefits, totally recommended. Thank you for the fast shipping, great packaging and lovely products, much appreciated!
Love the socks! My feet get really cold but these keep me warm all day.
