I'm using Trekking XXL right now and it is ok...as far as warmth and softness, it is good, but I'm finding that I split it too easily. I just started a pair with Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock and so far so good.

I use wool all year long for socks. Wool breathes. We tend to think of wool as cozy warm, but it can actually keep your feet cool as well. I'm looking at doing some lacier socks for this summer, but still using wool.
