Darn Tough Vermont To Add Machinery, Jobs

All-weather performance socks maker Darn Tough Vermont, Northfield, Vt., will invest $400,000 to add modern seamless knitting machinery and more employees at its hosiery mill. The expansion follows earlier plans announced in February to increase knitting machinery inventory by nearly half, add jobs and install modern computer software.

The company recently received a $3 million contract to supply the U.S. Marine Corps with 450,000 pairs of its Extreme Cold Weather Merino Wool Boot Socks. The socks are 100-percent U.S.-made, offer an unlimited lifetime guarantee, and feature small needle knitting for a high-density stitch count and good durability and cushioning, the company reports. They also feature an exclusive blend containing either Coolmax® fiber or ultrafine merino wool and offer properties including softness, good fit, durability and moisture management.
