I'm hoping someone can help me out.

Hitting on the first R (reduce) I've been trying to cut down on all of the extra stuff that I buy, and to buy eco-friendly products when I need something, but I'm stumped when it comes to socks!

I've bought bamboo socks from Secret, but they've got nylon in them and they wear out after maybe two wearings.

Aside from thick cotton sweat socks, are there any socks (preferably organic cotton or bamboo?) that you've found to be more durable than the typical super-thin, too-tight socks? I live in Canada, but ordering online is ok.

I have to say I'm in the same boat here. I go through socks like nobody's business, and I typically reuse them as wrags once they are beyond repair...but I'd rather buy a sustainable, higher quality, more durable product.

Any thoughts?
