“We are incredibly proud to achieve this level of growth in such a crowded market and to do so making great socks right here in Vermont, USA. Last year was the best ever for Darn Tough, and we’re carrying that momentum into 2013. It validates the growth strategy we put into place a few years ago, as well as the dedication, focus and energy our employees put into each and every sock that leaves our mill,” said Ric Cabot, founder and president of Darn Tough Vermont. “We project continued robust growth this year, and will be growing our capacity with the addition of 10 of the latest generation seamless knitting machines and with the expansion of our mill in Northfield, Vermont. We’ve been aggressively increasing distribution channels both domestically and internationally, and our socks are available in all 50 states and in many foreign countries. We’ll continue to add dealers in 2013, as we work hard to increase current store sales.”

A number of recent factors have contributed to the company’s growth. The success of the Light Cushion Run/Bike socks has secured the brand’s position as a leader in performance socks and pushed it to expand its Light Cushion collection into both the Hike/Trek and Lifestyle lines. Using industry leading technology, the Light Cushion socks are nearly 50% less wool yarn weight than the company’s traditional cushioned socks, without sacrificing any of Darn Tough’s legendary comfort, fit, technical performance, or durability. Darn Tough also recently introduced its most technical Ski/Ride sock, the F5, as well as new colors and designs for its women’s over-the-calf Cushion Ski/Ride sock, the Edelweiss.
