Over 30 years ago, we started making our Alpaca wool socks in order to keep toes from getting cold while skiing/hiking bringing an extra protection and warmth to the foot.
And since then, we have innovated with high-end textile technology developing exquisite natural and sustainable fiber blends that keeps you comfortable and dry in the outdoor.
We've been incorporating innovations and sock technologies into everything we make, from our Technikalpaca® Technical Socks to our casual products to help support your every step on the trail, day in the city, epic sunrise summit, and perfect powder trail.
We strongly believe that when your feet are in good order, you can have more and better experiences.

Run & Sport Socks
City & Lifestyle Socks
We spent two full years designing, testing, re-designing, re-testing and producing a new way to make products based on natural fine fibers.
Finally, after years of work, we created a product worthy of being called our toughest socks yet.
We tested it.
Our patented technology Technikalpaca® combines de legacy of ancient civilizations with the latest developments in textile technology to produce modern functional products, offering the best performance from natural clothing, while remaining long lasting and easier to care.
Technikalpaca® processes takes premium yarns and knits them in a way that fortifies each element of the sock without sacrificing fit or comfort. The result is a sock worthy of our fans—a sock worthy of our inspiration.
Our most highlighted features corresponds to comfort & control of temperature and humidity. Thanks to our craft and advanced processes - durability, ease of care and sustainability are also characteristic of our socks.
ECO-FRIENDLY TEXTILE TECHNOLOGY
Our own development of the Tecnikalpaca® textile technology is an environmentally friendly process that guarantees the best performance in all types of activities by the fusion of materials that adapt to the most radical and changing climates, the most extreme sports and the highest physical demands, without loosing the natural essence of sustainable fibers.
In the Andes, above 4,000 meters (13,000 Ft) altitud, there are 40ºC (104ºF) temperature differences in the course of the same day.
To survive, the South American Alpaca has evolved an adaptable partially hollow fleece able to be cool in the scorching mornings and warm during the freezing nights.
This insulating fiber also has wicking properties, transferring moisture outwards where it's spread over the surface of the fibers, accelerating evaporation for fast dryness when humidity is present.
Alpaca fleece is exceptionally soft and cushioning, reducing friction on the skin, preventing blisters when enjoying long walks.
Due to extreme solar radiation in the Andes, the fiber also acquired UV resistance, protecting your skin from sun damage.
Unlike man-made fibers, alpaca production is kind to the environment and to the animals, being a sustainable and renewal process, making it the best outdoor protection developed by nature for extreme conditions.

Our women’s and men’s socks are different.
Men’s socks are designed for broader feet and deeper heels. Women’s socks are designed for narrower feet and shallower heels.
ODOR REPELLENT & ANTIBACTERIAL
The wool fat of our selected natural fibers (lanolin) is very low compared to other fibers. And the low moisture absorption prevents unpleasant odors, even in an intensive sweating and frequent wearing.
The protein molecules in the fiber also neutralize bacterias and prevent any spreading.
