Norlander Socks are made with alpaca fleece which is considered one of the most luxurious fabrics in the world. The alpacas are shorn once a year for their valuable fleece which is perfect for creating textiles like socks (the Alpacas are not harmed during this process- it is just a haircut!). Norlander Alpaca Socks are soft, warm, moisture wicking and odor resistant. These properties are why we think they are the world’s best socks!
Alpaca Socks are Soft
- Alpaca fiber does not have the scales like other natural fibers so it is smoother. Norlander Alpaca Socks do not feel scratchy on the skin. It is so smooth, it can be worn against the skin without irritation.
- Alpaca Fiber is Warm
The fleece from alpacas is very cozy and even warmer than sheep wool. Alpacas have hollow fiber “fur” which provides superior insulation, even when wet. When wearing Norlander Alpaca Socks, warmth is held close to the feet for optimal thermal comfort, even in the coldest conditions.
- Alpaca Socks Wick Moisture
Yes, alpacas get wet in a rainstorm but, their fiber has excellent moisture wicking properties. Because alpaca fiber is hollow, it traps heat and repels water, preventing saturation on the skin.
- Alpaca Socks are Odor Resistant
Norlander Alpaca Socks contain fibers that are naturally anti-microbial which means our socks that do not absorb odor.
- Norlander Alpaca Socks are Colorful
Our socks come in a variety of colors. Alpaca fiber is an eco-friendly, renewable fiber. The alpaca fibers’ luster and strength are not compromised during our dying process.
Norlander’s Alpaca Socks are the world’s best socks because Alpacas are unique animals with special properties. We love Norlander’s Missouri herd of alpacas! Their fleece allow Norlander Socks to create soft, luxurious, moisture wicking socks. With a variety of colors and styles, we think that Norlander Alpaca Socks are truly the world’s best socks. Try them- your feet won’t be sorry!
