Does anyone have a recommendation for socks that retain heat well ?

I am looking for socks that will keep my feet from getting cold while sleeping . I have been wearing 2 pairs at a time and cant seem to keep warm .

Or possibly an electric blanket?

I don't know specifically for sleeping use, but I've found wool socks to be the best for hiking, both for warm and cool weather.

As a Canadian with cold feet all the time Im a big fan of the Kodiak brand ones. They seem to keep my feet warm. Im usually hot all over and we keep our thermostat pretty low because of that but my feet pay the price if Im not wearing them.

Sounds like circulation problems? Basspro Redhead cold weather socks are warm though and inexpensive.
If you have normal circulation I find just sleeping with a long sleeve shirt keeps my core warm so I can sleep without socks at all.

100% wool still retain 80 of heat even when wet. But when was the last time you were to a doctor and had your circulation checked out?

My hands and feet are very cold as soon as the outdoor temperature drops below 60F. I always wear socks to bed year round.

Totally agree on wool socks. Merino wool and prepare for sticker shock. Good news is they last longer than any other sock I've had. I have some now that are 10years old.

I keep a folded blanket at the foot of my bed to slip my feet under. It keeps my feet warm, without overheating the rest of me.

I usually wind up having my feet extend past the edge of the mattress while sleeping . My core stays warm but the feet are left out of the warmth of the bed .

I am looking into the wool socks on Amazon . While there I noticed some battery powered heated socks as well .

wool HIKING or snow-skiing socks (those are the THICKEST and most comfortable)
you'll never have cold toes again, and they're so comfortable you'll never want to take them off . ..
worth every penny! (skip the hassle of the 'battery' socks - these will do job better)
