Topic - woolen socks

dorangus - on 24 Mar 2013
Advice needed- I have recently purchased a whole range of hiking socks mainly consisting of merino or smartwool, but whilst out walking/hiking my lower leg and ankle always seem to have a rash on them.
Can one be allergic to wool? I have a merino top which never causes me any problems.
It cant be my washing detergent as I use it with everything else and I never had these problems when hiking in the UK and Europe, but ever since I have been living in Canada. Maybe its the sock manufacturer's??
