I have a couple of pairs of Lorpen socks I got in france, one is powerstretch and the other is powerstretch/primaloft.

They certainly are very warm, and they're very nicely made. I prefer the comfort of wool but one advantage of these powerstretch socks is the quick drying -- in the evening in a bivi I take the sweaty damp pair next to the skin and they dry extremely quickly, much more so than wool.
