Friday Freebies! 10 pairs of Target Dry merino/cocona socks to be won

It’s Friday  and that can only mean one thing – that we’ve got another bunch of outdoor goodies to give away! This week it’s 10 pairs of Target Dry’s new Xtreme series walking socks made with cocona technology.

For those of you who don’t know, here’s how Friday Freebies works: each and every Friday we offer you the chance to win some tasty kit, and all you have to do to enter is answer the question below. We announce the winners on the following Wednesday – to win though, you MUST check back on Wednesday to see if your name is among the winners. You can then email us at [email protected] to claim your prize.

So, what’s so special about cocona then? Well, this carbon-derivative of coconut husks helps water evaporate quickly due to the large surface area of its particles, and when blended in with merino wool, it helps to keep your feet dry and unblistered. It also has odour-resistant properties, so also helps prevent your feet getting too smelly.

Target Dry’s Hike Mid socks use a blend of merino wool and cococa, and also feature padded areas at the heel, toe and shin for improved comfort and durability. Available in both men’s and women’s versions, the socks retail for £14.99. Find out more at

So onto our question:

What tree does the material used to make cocona come from?
