Fiber First Moisture Wicking

Fiber FirstTM Moisture Wicking.

It begins with the fiber.


Born to wick moisture.

Swiftwick socks begin with fibers that are inherently moisture wicking, including natural Merino Wool and synthetic Olefin. In some cases, we even modify the profile of fibers at the microscopic level to improve performance. These high-performance fibers are then sculpted into breathable designs, constructed to move moisture. We call it Fiber FirstTM Moisture Wicking.

In contact with your skin.

Wicking is the ability to move moisture from a high humidity area to a lower humidity area. For socks, it’s simple: sock fibers can’t wick moisture if they’re not close to the skin. Swiftwick’s Contoured Compression® Fit assures that every hill and valley of your foot is in contact with the socks, enabling wicking fibers to do their job. 

We offer superior moisture wicking in every cushion level.
