about me

G'day! I’m “dash” the merino wool trainer sock. They say I'm always in a hurry, and it's true that I don't like to waste time. So let me get straight to the salient points.

  • I’m different from my other hipSwan friends because I’m made with merino wool with its natural moisture wicking and anti-bacterial properties. And OEKO-TEX 100 certified, at that.
  • I’ll make your runs and hikes more comfortable with my advanced design features like a compression arch, blister tab, seamless and cushioned toe, and luxurious cushioned sole.
  • I'm equally at home at vigorous sports like cycling, tennis, golf, pickleball, or just normal everyday use.
  • And as with all my other hipSwan friends, you’ll be supporting the planting of one tree for every order.
Regarding sizing, I come in a single size (23-25cm) which roughly equates to a UK shoe size between 4-7 (women) or 5-9 (men). But everyone has different feet and if you’ve any doubts about whether I’ll fit you can easily return me within 60 days and just pay the return postage.

Composition: 66% merino wool, 4% nylon, 30% lycra spandex

Care instructions:

Be gentle. Either hand wash or machine wash in cold water on the gentle cycle. If using a machine, it's best to place them in a laundry bag to protect them further just like other delicates. Use a mild detergent and never use bleach or fabric softener.

Turn your socks inside out. This way, the extra cushioning at the soles and heels will get a more thorough wash.

Do not use a dryer. The heat and circulation of a dryer will decrease the longevity of your socks. Best to air dry them on a drying rack.

Do not iron. There's no need to iron socks, and it's especially important to refrain from ironing those styles with silicone grippers (flow and chill).

hipSwan socks come in a single size, 23-25cm. Their inherent elasticity allows them to fit a wide range of feet and are not gender specific.

For additional guidance, the following chart presents the approximate shoe sizes that our socks are likely to fit:

Great socks

Have always run in merino socks as nothing else compares for trail runs. Usually buy well known makes that aren’t cheap. Decided to give these a go as the price was good for merino. So glad I did, great quality and love to support a British company. Will def be purchasing more.

Bounce with dash!

I’ve considered trying merino running socks for years but never taken the plunge until now. So comfy and cushioned, I almost felt like a gazelle on my last run! And that’s saying something. Love these socks. Will be repurchasing 😊

Dash running socks

Wore these straightaway on a long walk ( didn’t quite make it a run!) and they are super comfortable. The kind of socks that give you that ‘happy feet’ feeling. Really pleased with my purchase

Running socks

I bough a bundle of three pairs of running socks which I am delighted with. They are beautifully soft with their wool base and very comfortable too. I like the colour and design, especially the higher tab at the back of the ankle which protects the area from blisters. I can highly recommend these socks.
