Alpaca fiber incorporates the finest features of the world’s natural fibers. The fine alpaca hair and its hollow insulating core give alpaca fiber a smooth, velvety hand and cloudlike-softness. Alpaca fiber is found naturally in 22 distinctive colors and can also be dyed and blended to produce an infinite array of colors and textures.
Hands down alpaca makes the best sock for the active outdoors! They will keep your feet warm in the winter and cool and dry in the summer. Sweaty feet after a long hike? Take off those damp cotton socks and replace them with our extreme alpaca hiker sock. Your feet will be nice and dry as the alpaca fibers naturally whisk away all moisture from your tootsies! While other hikers will be hanging their wet socks to dry by the campfire, you’ll be snuggled in natural softness.
Alpaca fiber has a natural, rich luster that gives garments high visual appeal. It is warmer, lighter, stronger and more durable than wool. Also, it is naturally fire retardant. The fiber has no lanolin (oils) that help make it hypo-allergic for folks with reactions to other wool / blend products.
Alpaca fiber is softer than cashmere…pure luxury!
