Alpaca Socks

Accessibility links



Alpaca socks have proved a very welcome addition to our product line. Owing to their ability to wick away moisture and their wonderful softness and warmth, they are particularly popular with people spending long days in the country, as well as those simply wishing to be more comfortable than their friends who wear 'ordinary' socks.

Since our earlier make of socks, which were of pure alpaca, did not appear to last as long as their wearers would have wished (possibly because they were so comfortable that they were worn for longer at a time than 'ordinary' socks might have been), we decided to have future batches made with a moderate add-mix of nylon, to give extra durability.

The excellent socks currently available hence are not made exclusively of our own, home-grown alpaca; and, incidentally, are the only dyed product we sell.
