Great for both the environment and your feet, alpaca socks provide you with a way to tread mindfully. They are durable and long-lasting. And, because they are thermoregulating, they can even be worn from season to season. Alpaca fiber is also an all-natural, renewable resource. It doesn’t require any harsh chemical treatments during washing like sheep’s wool, cotton, and synthetics.
Alpaca fiber has the lowest moisture retention rate of natural fibers (only 8%). Comparatively, most wools have a water retention rate of 16-20%. The water, or moisture held in most socks is what creates a breeding ground for bacteria to replicate. It’s the bacteria that makes socks and feet stinky. Because alpaca socks stay dry they also stay fresh. We’re not saying your toes will smell like a rose… but we are saying you won't have to worry about taking your shoes off.
The great thing about alpaca socks is that they're extremely versatile. You can wear them in a casual setting to keep your feet cozy. Or you can head to your nearest hiking trail, knowing that your alpaca socks will wick moisture and stay smell-free throughout your adventure. A high-performance sock option is likely to last longer in intense outdoor environments. But even your standard alpaca sock is built to last. They can also be worn year-round, thanks to their thermoregulating properties. You can wear the same alpaca socks on a warm summer hike, that you'd wear in a snowstorm.
