The warmest, softest, longest lasting alpaca socks we’ve ever encountered, they have a cushion looped sole and are a fantastic fit. A gentle elastication around the arch of the foot ensures that they won’t slip down inside your boots.
They contain the necessary amount of elastane and nylon to make them last. 45% Baby Alpaca Wool, 40% Acrylic, 15 % Nylon.
One Size Only: 37-41 (UK size 5-8).
Why is Alpaca Wool Special?
· Buttery softness – alpaca fibre has a long flat staple
· Doesn’t pill or bobble
· Exceptionally insulating hollow fibre, 3 times warmer than ordinary wool
· Durable – improves with washing
· Natural and hypoallergenic – little prickle factor and no lanolin
Once treasured by Inca Royalty for its unique strength, lustre and slippery softness, Alpaca wool (or alpaca hair as it is also called) has a hollow fibre which renders it uniquely light and up to 30% warmer than the same weight of merino wool.
Alpaca wool has no lanolin content which together with an absence of the ‘prickle factor’ associated with ordinary wool makes it ideally suited for babies and sensitive skins. It is up to 4 times harder wearing than merino wool and does not tend to pill or ball. An alpaca sweater for example can last longer than a lamb’s wool or cashmere sweater. It also comes in at least 22 natural colours.
