Our lightweight merino wool socks are a merino wool-tencel blend. They keep toes warm (with a terry cushion lining) but is better suited for milder temperatures or with thicker boots compared to our mid-weight merino wool socks.
These are silky smooth thanks to Tencel and have a lot of stretch to it! If you really don't like bulk, these are the best socks for you feet!
They are similar to warmth to our Heavyweight cotton socks.
- Engineered for the perfect intersection of comfort and performance. Made from 42% ZQ Certified merino wool, 42% Tencel (natural fibre), 13% Recycled Polyester / Polyamide and 3% Spandex.

Why can’t we ship “regular” mail, you might wonder?
Because of the nature of our products and packaging (which aren’t always flat) we don't have the options of regular or media mail. (Not to mention: regular mail is also untracked and takes 2 times longer to reach you! And who wants to wait longer for their goodies to arrive?)
“Why do I have to pay for shipping? I’m used to getting free shipping!”
While we offer C$9.50 / USD $8 shipping on orders under C$95, it REALLY costs us closer to C$12 on average to ship within North America. We know it sounds crazy — but we pay the difference out of pocket so that we can offer the best flat rate to you!
It’s tough being a small retailer (we are just 3 women!) up against the “free shipping movement” of our bigger competitors. But we’re doing our best, and we’re grateful for your understanding. 💙
By choosing ZQ products, you can be confident that the sheep producing the wool are humanely treated, well fed, live natural and healthy lives, and are not subjected to mulesing. Instead you are getting fibre of the very highest quality and performance.

Plus our customers says they don't itch like other merino wool socks!

Love these little socks. They are soft and extremely comfortable, and wash beautifully. I wear a size 9 shoe, and ordered a large so that I could throw them in the dryer. I’ve worn them all winter inside my house slippers.
Hi Janice, Taking so much for taking the time to write us a review.
Love love love them. I bought a pair last year and lived in them all winter. So much so I bought 6 more for this winter.
Thanks so much for the feedback
Tried these after discovering how wonderful wool ankle socks are for the summer. They are the same price as less sustainably made wool athletic socks and are cuter. They run a bit large but are comfy and oh so breathable.
Absolutely love these socks. Comfortable to wear, do not slip down in my shoes. Keep my feet cozy when I use as slippers. Great colours but a few different colours would add to my sock wardrobe 😊
I hardly feel these socks when I work out. It's so comfortable. I sweat a lot and these feel amazing. Post workout they also don't stink. I bought myself and my husband a few pairs and they are always our go to socks.
This sock is very Stylish, soft and well-made. It will be warm when worn as a “slipper“ in the house or as a lightweight layer inside a boot or pair of sneakers.This sock will be a stocking stuffer for our son, along with the other Quinn socks that will match the ones we bought for his baby son! Have ordered more.
