The beautiful Andina Socks Collection shows the best alpaca socks! Which are also naturally adaptable. In the Andes, at 13,000 ft. altitude, there are 104°F temperature differences in the course of the same day.
To survive, the South American alpaca has evolved an adaptable semi-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. 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 a sustainable process, making it the best outdoor protection developed by nature.
