Kentwool to showcase sock collection at PGA Merchandise Show

GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Kentwool - the 170-year-old, family-owned American textile innovator - will showcase its 19th Hole lifestyle sock collection alongside it award-winning range of performance hosiery at the 2013 PGA Merchandise Show, Booth #4683, January 24-26 in Orlando, FL.

Consisting of all-season styles that stay cool in the summer and insulate in winter, 19th Hole lifestyle socks are ideal for the first tee or boardroom. Crafted from Kentwool's blend of ultra-soft 18.5 micron Super-Fine Merino wool and performance fibers, they are available in solids, as well as striped and argyle patterns.

"Our hundreds of green grass partners are enjoying the increased revenue opportunities offered by these true golf-lifestyle products," says Mark Kent, President and CEO of Kentwool. "And, of course, their customers love the blister-free guarantee that comes standard with each and every pair we sell."

Sleek and sophisticated, the fatigue-reducing 19th Hole lineup features a luxurious sheer feel and reinforced cushioning. Similar to other Kentwool models - including the golf-specific Tour Standard, Tour Profile and Low Profile for men and women - the socks boast superior moisture management, odor defense, durability and abrasion-resistance.

Through a proprietary blend of natural and high-tech fibers, Kentwool creates an innovative, micro-climate system that allows socks to stay dry and odor-free without washing for multiple wears. This system is trusted in competition by scores of Tour stars, including Bubba Watson, Matt Kuchar, Jonathan Byrd, Ryann O'Toole, Peter Jacobsen, Duffy Waldorf, Brendon de Jonge, Tom Gillis, Jane Park, Charles Warren, Kevin Johnson, Kristy McPherson, Shasta Averyhardt, Jenny Suh, Sarah Kemp, Jenny Gleason, Meaghan Francella and Jenny Hong.

About KENTWOOL
Founded in 1843, Kentwool continues to be one of the nation's longest-running, family-owned textile companies. Kentwool is the only company in the western hemisphere — and one of 50 in the world — to receive the Usterized Quality Certification indicating the highest level of quality assurance in yarn production.

An avid golfer, Kentwool CEO Mark Kent had the idea to produce the "World's Best Golf Sock" after standing in the 18th fairway of the BMW Nationwide Tour Pro-Am tending to blistered, bleeding feet instead of concentrating on the eagle opportunity guaranteeing him a spot in the final round.

Born from that moment is golf's leading, premium merino wool golf sock. It enables golfers of all abilities to play their best while benefiting from abrasion and fatigue resistance, as well as Kentwool's blister-free guarantee. Kentwool utilizes its nearly two-century-old heritage of superiority in textiles to create socks which draw upon wool's natural and cool performance fibers for moisture management, sheer comfort and other performance-enhancing benefits.

Kentwool socks are worn in competition by scores of Tour stars worldwide including Bubba Watson, Matt Kuchar, Jonathan Byrd, Ryann O'Toole, Peter Jacobsen, Duffy Waldorf, Brendon de Jonge, Tom Gillis, Jane Park, Charles Warren, Kevin Johnson, Kristy McPherson, Shasta Averyhardt, Jenny Suh, Sarah Kemp, Jenny Gleason, Meaghan Francella and Jenny Hong.

Based in Greenville, SC, all Kentwool products are made in the USA.
