Wool wicks away moisture and dries very quickly. That's why it's been used for socks for centuries.

Cotton absorbs moisture and hangs on to it. Not sure why we use it for socks other than marketing hype.
Cotton also whisks away moisture. That's why it is the fabric used by the Arabs for their clothing. It does take a long time to dry.
