The Wonders of Alpaca Fiber...

Have you ever tried on a pair of socks that felt absolutely heavenly? The first time I put on a pair of 'Extreme Alpaca Socks' all I could think of was 'Wow'! These socks say it all when it comes to describing the wonders of alpaca fiber.

Do the socks you normally wear ever feel damp? Alpaca fiber:

  • is hypoallergenic
  • lanolin and dander free
  • highly thermal
  • does not absorb water into the fiber
  • has a much softer feel than wool
  • is lightweight
  • does not have the prickle effect experienced with wool

Alpaca SocksWool scales are smaller than alpaca and stick up at a sharper angle. This creates the prickle effect and can even cause an allergic reaction. Fibers are measured by micron count which is the width of the fiber and equivalent to 1/1000th of a millimeter. Alpaca fiber ranges between 15 to about 39 microns. We all know how extremely soft a baby's hair is and this is measured at about 70 microns. What a telling statistic this is for alpaca fiber! With the thermal characteristics of alpaca fiber you can wear your favorite alpaca socks or sweaters at any time of year. You'll be cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Order a pair today. You'll be saying 'Wow'!
