The sock is creating a dead air space below the hammock, so it is certainly helping to retain heat that way. However once the ground freezes I would imagine that there may be a sudden appearance of frost in the bottom of the sock as water vapor within the sock would then condense and freeze on the bottom. Just my hypothesis on the situation. Would be interesting to find out extended use results.
