Consumers are increasingly demanding more from their socks. THERMOLITE® FAR INFRARED technology has been developed to help you meet the growing need for high-tech warming performance. When knit into legwear, our far infrared (FIR) fibers use the body’s own infrared energy to generate heat so feet stay comfortable longer.
