- The Point 6 Difference
- Headquarters: Colorado
- Founded In: 2008
With a new spin on traditional merino wool sock construction, Point6 is leading the way in the evolution of the merino wool movement.
The spinning process turns our premium merino wool fibers into yarn, and compact spinning removes more air from between the fibers, creating a more compact, and thus softer, finer and more durable yarn. Other companies are content to use small percentages of compact spun yarns in their products. Point6 uses compact spun yarns exclusively in the men's and women's wool socks. Once spun, yarns are knit with fine gauge needles, producing more stitches per inch, to create exceptionally soft and durable wool socks. Point6 has created a superior wool sock with increased longevity, while mother nature has created a fiber with an excellent inherent ability to increase natural thermoregulation - merino wool. Merino wool fibers feature a complex moisture management system, able to both repel and absorb moisture, keeping feet dry, comfortable and blister-free.
