UK Alpaca’s Walking Socks are a hard wearing performance alpaca sock with a cushioned sole. Once tried, never forgotten, these socks are a firm favourite for those who love the great outdoors. Natural alpaca fibre is breathable, anti-bacterial with good wicking properties that ensure comfy, warm, dry and odour free feet.
The socks are made from 75% British alpaca and 25% nylon and are made from our British alpaca yarn. This new and improved range of single colour socks feature a linked toe design giving much increased comfort.
All the alpaca comes from the fleeces of alpacas farmed in the UK.
For best results hand wash or use a low temperature delicate machine wash, spin at no more then 600rpm and air dry.
