Over 30 years ago, the Cabot family opened a mill and began making socks in Northfield, Vermont. Family owned and run in Vermont since 1978, Darn Tough is still true to their roots, making them unique in an era of outsourcing and corporate take overs

Frigid winters and humid summers taught them that all socks are not created equally. Living in the most unforgiving climate in the lower 48, their socks had to be tough and of course they certainly had to keep our feet dry and warm. Whether skiing, hiking, biking, climbing or running, their Darn Tough Vermont socks kept their feet oblivious to the elements.

The Cabot team spent over a year testing yarn combinations and designs, confident that during this process they could create something unique; a sock that they could guarantee for life. After three generations of sock research and innovation, It is the pursuit of quality that keeps the Cabot family in the sock business, right here in America. To date, DARN TOUGH VERMONT, is the culmination of those efforts. It's a brand uniquely created around a single, fine gauge needle, which means all the socks, from their Mesh running sock, to their over-the-calf Full Cushion ski sock is crafted with the same high quality raw material and high density knitting techniques that make their product unique. Its custom counts of Merino wool and an exclusive blend of Coolmax® which makes the socks incredibly strong and comfortable. And it’s all about the knitting. Three generations of knitting know-how means the Cabot family definitely know how.
