It is a sock of material that is sown into the shape of a tube. The tube material is cut to form a taper when stitched together. This taper effect allows the wind sock to float in the air due to the pressure causes inside. The tunneling effect of the wind through the tapered "sock" causes lift and makes the wind sock stick out like it does. However, this only works when there is wind to blow through the sock

It turns and catches the wind so you know which direction the wind is at its strongest.
