Why Alpaca Wool?

Trekking and hiking are activities that require adequate equipment to guarantee a comfortable and safe experience. One of the most important items of equipment is the socks you will wear. Wearing the right socks can help prevent blisters, reduce the risk of injury, and increase comfort during long walks.

Why Alpaca wool?

Alpaca wool comes from the hair of alpacas, a domesticated animal found in regions of South America. Alpaca wool is known for being soft, warm and durable, making it a popular choice for winter apparel. Alpaca wool has a similar texture to sheep's wool, but is softer and less irritating to the skin.
