[Costco] Costco Kirkland Merino Wool socks are back! 4/pr $10.99

Seen them at the Marché-Central location in Montreal, pack of 4 for $10.99

Medium (Men 5-9, Women 6-10)
Large (Men 8-13, Women 9+)

(71% merino wool, 21% nylon, 7% polyester, 1% lycra spandex)

Stocked up 2 packs for the GF and an extra one for myself, can't go wrong for $2.75/pair
The 8 pairs I bought from 2 years ago are still as new!

Item # is 293278, sku M 096619293278 and L 096619119523

Made in USA it says, rebranded SmartWool socks people says that goes for $20.50/pr!

Also saw women merino wool shirts at 15.99/ea IIRC

Not sure these are smartwool... But with that said, these are really really great winter socks. Sometimes even too warm! I have these and use them when doing outdoor winters activities (-20oC and lower) and I can't remember when my feet cold. They are on the thick side and I really wished they had tigh-high socks.

You can't beat the value of these socks.

interesting but I'm skeptical they are rebranded smartwool. $20 socks for $3, very skeptical! but merino wool is good, and I don't think you can get 70% wool socks for $3 anywhere else...

They are almost identical to my actual Smartwools when I held them up side by side.

With the "Made in USA" makes me think that this is really a big possiblity. I don't think there are many merino sock factory in the US :)

Anywho... for the people of the fence, smartwool debranded or not, these are *excellent* socks. I love merino. I will refund anyone that doesn't like them*.

Correction, seems like it's made by one of the ex-smartwool factory in Tenesse (ref) but they're not as padded underneath, still a pretty darn good deal

My hunch wasn't *so* bad afterall :) If I have not been clear already... these are terrific socks at a terrific price. I will probably get couple of more pairs.
