Cut the rib/stretch knit tops off old gym or hunting socks, fold double for wrist bands. Synthetics or blends are better than cotton imo as the synthetics wick the sweat away more efficiently. Altho wool holds moisture, it is uncomfortable and won’t hold its shape. But any sock will work to discover whether you prefer wrist bands to gloves.
