Cold feet are complacent feet
When the mercury plummets, and you're still committed to the open road, pull on the Pearl Izumi Elite Thermal Wool Sock. Like its summer-weight cousin, the Elite Thermal Wool Sock insulates when wet and wicks moisture like a vacuum. Pearl Izumi made this sock taller and thicker to get you through the worst of what nature has to offer, because a winter without riding is no way to live, at all.
The Elite Thermal Wool sock is made from Pearl Izumi's Elite Transfer Merino wool yarn. This lightweight material provides a last line of defense against discomfort and odor. The thick Merino construction naturally warms your foot, wicks away moisture, and fights the buildup of odor. On top of all this, it's soft to the touch, and conforms perfectly to the contours of your foot. To ensure your comfort, Pearl designed the shape of the sock with an anatomic arch compression and a flat-toe design that work to elevate the already precise fit. The Elite Thermal sock also has a cushioning strategically located under the foot, and 21.5cm cuff height that warms both your leg and calf.
The Pearl Izumi Elite Thermal Wool Sock is available in four sizes from Small to X-Large and in the colors Black and Shadow Grey.

Not heavy enough for "thermal"
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
They are indeed thicker than pi elite tall socks, but from what I can tell most of that is on the bottom. In my opinion it won't take you from cool to cold on the temperature scale. Aside from that it is a great sock, very comfortable.
