I have found that mostly acrylic golf socks dry fairly quickly, plus they have some technical features like cushioning and arch support. For golf sox I know the local brand TravisMathew (men only) does a mostly acrylic sock and they are on Zappos if you are in the US.

But I admit to also liking a "reusable" merino wool. I will have to keep an eye out for a blend merino/acrylic.

I am always looking for socks, many of the brands now made in China use too much polyster which doesn't hold up well. It's even harder to find women's crew socks in the US that are something else beside made in China polyester, other than those superthick hiking socks. This is "sock shopping" season in the US so I'm on the lookout.

mlgb, do take a look at Smartwool. On Zappos, and elsewhere. They come in a wide variety of thicknesses, with a lot of trouser sock options. Not cheap, but durable and good quality.

I do like Smartwool, NewbE, I just wish they weren't $20 a pair.

I tead sboutbTilley's Fast Drying Socks but haven't tried them yet.
Rolling in a towel is very helpful.
