If you go thinner it has to be microfiber (Polartec) then Down. (underfeathers).. each gets lighter as the fibers get smaller they trap more air... Smart socks are blends they almost have to include Dupont Lycra to survive. The cheapest is Hunter Socks at Walmart and they achieve better than Smart Wool for service and price.

Wool still has its place... But I stopped using it over 15 years ago. Some just like it...and when I was a Brit - I loved the Scottish heavy sweater...it was a favorite Christmas present in bright red.
