Darn Tough believes in the quality and durability of its socks above all else to offer an unconditional lifetime guarantee. Seriously, you can return any pair at any time; tomorrow, next year or in a decade. You can argue that if I buy a pair of socks for $20, I’ll never have to buy that type of socks again.
We will process the socks and form and email you a credit code for the full replacement value of your claim to use on our website. Visit our warranty page for more information on this process. How long will it take to get a credit after returning my socks?

Machine wash in warm water on gentle cycle with socks inside out. Do not bleach. Tumble dry low or hang dry. Do not dry clean.
The wool we use for our wool socks is 100% fine, low-micron merino wool (the good stuff). We reinforce the outside and inside of the sock with Nylon and Lycra for extra comfort, durability and fit.
We’ve been running The Mill for over 40 years, but Darn Tough Vermont – the sock with an unconditional lifetime guarantee – started in 2004. When things were a bit rough for American manufacturing, the Cabot family could have taken manufacturing elsewhere and still made money. They didn’t.
If you purchased your Darn Tough Vermont socks elsewhere or it has been more than 90 days since purchase, we offer you our Unconditional Lifetime Guarantee.
Always turn socks inside out before throwing them in the wash. This technique ensures they are thoroughly cleaned as most odor-causing bacteria accumulate inside the sock. Turning them inside out also keeps them lint free.
100% Satisfaction Guarantee
If you are not satisfied with your REI purchase, you may return it for a replacement or refund within one year of purchase, except for Outdoor electronics that must be returned within 90 days of purchase.
In general, 6-12 pairs of socks are used on a regular weekly cycle, plus 2-7 pairs of socks used for special occasions. Thus, 8-16 pairs of socks are the ideal number of socks to own.
We are a million. Every step of the knitting process happens right here, on our premises, in Northfield, Vermont if you will. Everything under one roof gives us the highest level of quality and control. It results in a sock that is second to none in terms of comfort, durability and fit.

Tactical socks are designed to be ready at any time. A strong military should never settle for less than the very best, and neither should the men and women who can do whatever it takes to lead our military to victory.
The AR670-1 regulation for socks requires socks to be black, green or tan with a cushioned sole. The socks should be stretchy and should not go further than the calves. Wear these socks with military boots.

Hard, crusted socks occur when either the dirt is not completely removed by washing or when hard water causes a build-up in the fibers of the fabric. Hard socks are not comfortable to wear, especially if they have retained dirt and odor after washing.
