Made to last
Darn Tough is interested in one thing. Producing the best possible socks the world has to offer. Just when they think they’ve arrived, they start over and improve what they’ve almost perfected. Little changes, small adjustments—a touch more of this or a drop less of that—is what keeps them going. That willingness to never give up, to never be satisfied, to go for that next peak, is what they are all about.
Darn Tough Vermont is a family-owned, American manufacturer of end-use-specific socks. They design, manufacture, sell and promote the most comfortable, durable and best fitting socks available in the market today. This promise is backed up by their unconditional lifetime guarantee. If you can wear out their socks they will replace them free of charge.
Darn Tough wants you to feel good about buying your socks from them: good about the way they feel, good about the way they perform, and they trust, good about supporting a Vermont-made, American brand, including the raw materials used to make them.
Darn Tough believes Merino Wool is one of the best materials for manufacturing our Darn Tough Vermont socks, and to that end, they source only the finest merino wool available.
Darn Tough sources their Merino Wool from America and around the globe and they hold their material suppliers to the same high standards and values as they do themselves. They work closely with their suppliers to ensure that Darn Tough Vermont receives only sustainably sourced Merino Wool from sheep that are not exposed to the practice of mulesing.
What we love about Darn Tough
They are family owned. For close to 40 years they’ve been knitting socks in the Green Mountains of Vermont. They are three generations strong and know how to make socks. Crafting the world’s most comfortable, durable, and best fitting socks is an ardent skill passed down from father to son. This commitment, this passion, it’s in the blood.
They are one mill. Every step of the knitting process happens right there in Vermont, by Darn Tough, locally if you will, in Northfield, Vermont. All-under-one-roof affords them the ultimate in quality and control. It yields a sock that is unparalleled in comfort, durability and fit. “Nobody ever outsourced anything for quality,” is why they’re still making their socks in Northfield, Vermont. U.S.A.
