Behind the Curtain at SmartWool

This video gives you an inside look at the manufacture of SmartWool socks at their factory in the US. It’s a cool video that shows you the machinery at work and gives you a good idea of how the socks are made.

However, please remember, not all SmartWool products are manufactured here and although there are Merino sheep here in the US, Merino Wool is a product of New Zealand.

    In fact there have been Merino sheeps in Spain waaay before NZ (Hence their name), and it’s there where the hard commerce of merino wool started. Just sayin

      Thanks for that input. Very interesting. However, be it NZ or Spanish wool, either way, it’s still not Berry compliant.

      Plus, New Zealand maintains that they have developed the ultimate breed of Merino. They claim that the topography of New Zealand and seasonal migration of the sheep means that they have wool adapted to comfort in both summer and winter.
