These mid-calf alpaca socks are warm, soft, and lightweight. They are made with a blended yarn that features alpaca and acrylic for softness and warmth, nylon for durability, and lycra for stretch and shape retention. The alpaca fibers naturally wick away moisture and are hypoallergenic and organic, making this a great all-season sock.
About Alpacas: Alpacas are native to the Andes Mountains in South America. The temperature difference between day and night in the Andes can be severe (up to 80F difference in a 24 hr period). Aplacas have adapted to this climate by developing a fleece that can keep them warm in the freezing Andean nights and scorching Andean sun. In the same way, the luxurious Alpaca fiber will keep you comfortable at a wide range of temperatures.
About Everything Alpaca: Everything Alpaca was established in 1998 for the purpose of promoting the development of the natural fiber industry in Peru. They specialize in the transformation of Alpaca and other natural fibers into high quality exquisite yarns, fabrics, and garments.
