The warmest, softest, longest lasting alpaca socks we’ve ever produced. They are cushion looped, a fantastic fit and they won’t wear out like 100% baby alpaca. A gentle elastication around the arch of the foot ensures that they won’t slip down inside your boots.
They contain the necessary amount of elastane and nylon to make them last. 45% Baby Alpaca, 40% Acrylic, 15 % Nylon.
A higher ratio of baby alpaca would not be as durable. One Size Only: 37-41 (UK size 5-8)
ALPACA PRODUCT CARE
After 16 years in the business, our knowledge of the quality and care of our alpaca yarns is second to none.
Alpaca improves with age. Our products will not always feel as soft and supple when new as they will with continued wear.
Please follow these guidelines and you will enjoy your alpaca products for many years to come!
Our exclusive yarn combines 70% finest micron baby alpaca with 30% bamboo viscose to create a supremely soft, silky yarn, less prone to pilling. It is harder wearing, drapes beautifully and while it remains uniquely insulating, it is more breathable, less “hairy” and therefore more transseasonal. It also washes beautifully.
A cool handwash (30º) with a mild detergent such as baby shampoo is recommended. Wash for no more than 5 minutes. Rinse in lukewarm water, always pressing, not wringing the fabric. Wrap the item in a clean dry towel to absorb excess moisture. Reshape as necessary and lay flat to dry. Do not hang your wet alpaca garment as it will stretch.
While it is possible to machine wash some of our garments on a 30º cool wash cycle, we cannot guarantee the result, because the make and condition of different washing machines varies too much! However, if you do wish to use this method for some of our smaller and less delicate items, we recommend you turn the product inside out and place in a gauze laundry bag.
For very stubborn stains, please take your item to a professional dry cleaner.
We recommend that all our alpaca products are folded or rolled, rather than hung to prevent stretching.
