First of all, what is alpaca wool?

If you do not know what is alpaca wool, this will interest you: it is warmer than the sheep wool, more insulating thanks to its composition as a tube (empty inside, filled with air) and also softer. Moreover, it does not sting on the skin and is certainly a material of a great nobility (only the Incas of the high society had the right to wear it). Another point likely to interest your toes: the alpaca wool keep moisture away from your skin.

Now that you know the benefits of alpaca wool, here are the types of socks we have in store.

How to take care of alpaca socks

Our first advice: like any other wool product, avoid at all cost the dryer … oops, you passed them in the dryer by accident? I did it dozens of times and fortunately they were still great. Anyway… just don’t put them in the dryer to keep them longer.

And believe me, you’ll have them all winter in your feet!
