I’ve bought 12 pairs now. The first 6 were the ones with 5% spandex. I really like those ones. They hold their shape well and feel great.
The next ones were—accidentally—the 100% wool. I got 3 in navy, three in black. The navy ones came first, and I instantly realized something was off. They were a little saggy. They didn’t feel as nice to wear. I tried the other two pairs of navy, and they fit the same. Also, as expected, they got looser throughout the day and overnight.
When I noticed they were 100% wool and worried that the black ones on their way would be the same.
