Cordillera | Alpaca & Merino Hiking Socks
Knitted with our flexible blend of natural fibers these socks will adapt to warm or cold environments while wicking moisture outwards and resisting odour formation, keeping you dry and comfortable in all conditions.
FEATURES & USE: Timeless functional design for outdoors exploration with maximum comfort.
HIKE & TREK
Protective cushioned socks for vigorous, long-distance walks.
Naturally adaptable performance for maximum comfort on variable weather.
Best for multi-day excursions to mountainous regions or cross-country trails.
Alpaca is enhanced by blending it with Merino Wool, for a more durable and resilient product and with Bamboo Rayon to increase freshness and control odour.
Blended fibers are knitted on a technical layered knit to obtain the best performance from natural resources.
Alpaca fiber creates a vapor barrier to keep you warm when the weather is cold and fresh when it is hot.
As a natural semi-hollow fiber it traps warm air in the cores insulating even in wet or windy conditions.
Alpaca fibers use capillary action to transfer moisture from the skin outwards and spread it on the surface of the fibers, increasing the evaporation rate for keeping the user dry and comfortable.
The smooth and lustrous nature of Alpaca is very gentle on the skin, reducing friction and blisters from any imperfection inside the footwear as well as protecting from UV radiation.
Alpaca is the best performing fiber to make socks. Hollow hairs make it warm, dry, fresh and light.
Alpaca herds roam freely in harmony with their natural ecosystems and are shorn by hand once a year.
We transform the fiber using state-of-the-art technology obtaining innovative products that don’t harm the environment, animals nor society.
This sustainable industry brings better living conditions to one of the most remote regions in the world.
