Why alpaca wool?

Trekking and hiking are activities that require appropriate equipment to ensure a comfortable and safe experience. One of the most important pieces of equipment is the socks you will wear. Wearing the right socks can help prevent blisters, reduce the risk of injury, and increase comfort on 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 clothing. Alpaca wool has a similar texture to sheep wool, but is softer and less irritating to the skin.

Benefits of alpaca wool

1. Breathability

Trekking socks made from alpaca wool are breathable, allowing air to circulate around the feet and keeping them dry. This is important for hikers who spend long hours walking and need to keep their feet comfortable to avoid injuries and blisters.

2. Thermal insulation

Alpaca wool has excellent thermal insulation properties that keep your feet warm in cold weather and cool in hot weather.

3. Durability

Our trekking socks are durable and abrasion-resistant. The material is naturally tear-resistant and doesn't wear out easily, meaning the tights will last longer than other material options.

4. Comfort

Alpaca wool also feels soft and does not irritate the skin. That's why our socks are comfortable to wear over long periods of time and don't cause chafing or blisters on your feet.


5. Waterproof

This material is naturally waterproof, meaning trekking socks can keep your feet dry even when wet.

6. Odor resistance

Alpaca wool has natural antibacterial properties, which means that socks made from this material do not accumulate unpleasant odors.

All our products have alpaca wool as the main material and all our models have a fully functional design for outdoor sports with maximum comfort and the best benefits.
