Alpaca wool is the perfect material for socks. It's as soft as cashmere, wicks moisture, insulates better than nearly every fiber on the market, and is safe for sensitive skin as alpacas do not produce lanolin. Man-made 'high performance' fibers attempt to recreate the natural structure and benefits of alpaca wool, but nothing quite matches the real thing. Our alpaca wool is sourced directly from Peru and is a fully sustainable fiber.
Care Instructions: To machine wash, turn socks inside out and use a mild detergent on wool setting or delicates. Wash in cold water, lay flat to dry or tumble dry on cold/air setting. Wash dark colors separately. Washing in a mesh laundry bag will reduce agitation. This will avoid the alpaca socks getting stretched and losing their shape over time. Hand wash in cold water with a gentle soap, tumble dry on low/cold or lay flat to dry.
