Alpaca Walking Socks – British Made Luxury
Alpaca Walking Socks are designed to keep your feet very warm and comfortable. The thick cushioned sole provide additional comfort, making them hard-wearing and yet soft. Alpaca offers excellent insulation and wicking properties.
These socks are ankle length with a ribbed cuff and plain knitted body on the outside. I have the socks knitted to my specifications by a traditional, family run sock manufacturer in the Midlands. The yarn from which they are knitted is spun and dyed for us here in the UK too.
My latest batch of Alpaca Walking socks have been delivered. These have been knitted for me in the Scottish Highlands from the same yarns as usual. The leg length in the medium size is a couple of inches shorter and the small size is about an inch shorter. You can identify these new socks as the product code starts AW3 rather than AW1.
These socks are ideal for both men and women. The three unisex sizes, small (shoe size 4-7), medium (8-10) and large (11-13). For EU Shoe Sizes and foot sizes, please see the Sizing Guide on every product page.
I make these socks in seven solid colours: Damson, Olive, Black, Natural White, Royal, Red and Sky Blue. We have also knitted some small and medium sizes in Moss (it looks like a slightly lighter shade of Olive).
Composition: 75% Alpaca / 25% Nylon for our original walking socks which have a SKU(product code) starting with AW1. The composition of the latest batch, with a product code starting AW3 is 85% alpaca and 15% nylon. I include nylon as it provides enough stretch to give a good fit.
I use natural fibres, so please remember to read the care information.

Our natural fibre, unisex socks are kinder to your feet than synthetic alternatives, but this means they need a gentle wash. We recommend our alpaca and wool socks are gently hand washed and rinsed in tepid water, squeezing gently rather than wringing. A vigorous machine wash (whatever the temperature) with too much detergent or long spin, may result in shrinkage.
Leave to dry naturally and do not put in a tumble dryer.
