A quality pair of socks can make a difference. Your feet get you through it all, whether it's a long work day, a day filled with errands, or a leg-heavy hiking trip. We concentrated on comfort and functionality when creating our alpaca wool sock collection. Our alpaca socks are the epitome of luxury, making your feet feel pampered while offering all the functionality you need.
Alpaca wool is made from the fibres that naturally grow on alpacas and has unique qualities that make it especially suitable for knitting socks.
Alpacas, distant cousins of llamas, graze at elevations of 10,000 to 14,000 feet on the high plains of the Peruvian Andes. Their plush, thick coats naturally grow in more than 40 shades, ranging from ivory to black and every variation of grey and brown. The fleece's lighter tones also take colours beautifully, making it indispensable for creating colourful alpaca sock designs.
Our elegant, lightweight alpaca bed and walking socks are perfect for all seasons since the wicking abilities of the alpaca fibres keep your feet dry, cool, toasty, and odour-free. These charming men's and women's alpaca socks are made from exceptionally smooth and silky textures, so it's no wonder alpaca wool was once only used by the Inca nobility because of its extreme softness.
The Wool Company's alpaca wool socks are lovingly knitted, hand-dyed, and hand-finished in England rather than being mass-produced to respect the heritage and integrity of the Incan tradition, so you can feel like royalty while wearing them.
