Diabetic Alpaca Socks from Norlander Sock Company

Norlander Alpaca Socks can help with Diabetic Neuropathy.

Recently, we’ve had increased orders for heavyweight alpaca socks from clients who suffer from diabetic neuropathy in their feet. Good foot care practices are important for people with diabetes and word must be getting around that alpaca socks’ thermal qualities are ideal for those who suffer from chronic foot problems. Peripheral neuropathy, which affects feet and hands, is the most common form of diabetic neuropathy and it can leave sufferers with chronically cold feet.

If there is one thing Norlander Sock Company hates, it is people suffering from cold feet! Our heavyweight alpaca socks are have super soft, terry lining and non-restrictive bands. The naturally hypoallergenic alpaca fiber means comfort for aching, cold feet and sensitive skin. Alpaca is warmer than wool and has similar thermal qualities but does not have the “prickly” wool feeling. Norlander heavyweight alpaca socks thick, heavy- duty Alpaca fiber is three times warmer than wool but smoother to the touch so it is non-irritating to sensitive feet.

According to the American Diabetes Association, living with diabetic foot complications is a complex issue but wearing warm socks and avoiding excessive moisture are recommended measures. Alpaca fiber naturally retains warmth against the skin and wicks moisture. Wicking is the ability of the fiber to pull moisture from the skin’s surface toward the outer surface of the fabric, where it can evaporate. Because of alpaca’s natural moisture wicking properties, wearing Norlander Alpaca Socks keeps feet dry and hygienic which is also extremely beneficial for our diabetic customers.

Norlander heavyweight socks are cushioned for extra comfort and very soft against sensitive, vulnerable skin. They are durable and can be machine washed so Norlander’s Alpaca Socks are as convenient as they are comfortable. We understand that warm feet are nice for most people but a necessity to our diabetic customers and we want to help by providing the best alpaca socks possible!
