Alpaca socks come in many styles and weights; from heavy-duty boot socks to light weight athletic gear. Alpaca fiber's moisture wicking properties and excellent thermal qualities make them ideal for every activity. Unlike sheep’s wool, alpaca fleece contains no lanolin and is believed to be hypo-allergenic, meaning it does not irritate your skin as sheep’s wool sometimes does.
Alpaca fiber is recognized globally for its fineness, softness, light-weight, durability, and excellent thermal qualities. Alpaca fiber is stronger, lighter, warmer, and more resilient than wool from most breeds of sheep.
