Alpaca wool socks

An alpaca is a camelid, cousin of the llama. Even though they are often mistaken, they are very different. An alpaca is smaller, has pointier ears and has a softer coat. The llama is used for transportation whereas the alpaca is used for its fur. The fur of the alpaca is softer and shinier than the llama’s. An alpaca is also much kinder, and shyer than a llama. Alpacas are more and more known for being very therapeutic animals. Even very anxious and nervous children enjoy the company of these very cute animals. People also enjoy practicing yoga sessions with alpacas. Some alpaca farms also organize alpaca events where the alpacas come and visit nursing homes or school for children with special needs. Alpacas are very cute, and an extremely friendly face. You will most likely want to spend more time with an alpaca after meeting one.

Lightweight wool socks

Alpaca wool socks are known to be very lightweight. Alpaca wool has in reality many different properties that make this wool so unique. Called the “wool of the gods”, alpaca wool is a wool that comes from the coat of an alpaca. These animals live in Peru, in the Andes Mountains, where they are confronted to big temperature variations, sometimes varying from 40 degrees during the same day. To adapt to this phenomenon, the alpaca has developed a fur that is thermoregulatory. It keeps you warm when you are cold but also does not make you too hot. This will make your thin wool socks very warm socks but not uncomfortably warm. However, if you are looking for warm socks to wear when the cold weather is coming, thin wool socks are the perfect socks for you. Alpaca wool is seven times warmer than sheep’s wool. Alpaca socks are also very soft, as they are made with a high-quality wool. Thin wool socks made out of alpaca are also hypoallergenic. They do not contain chemical products and alpaca wool also does not contain lanolin. That makes then suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive ones. Alpaca wool is also very durable. It is 4 times more resistant than sheep’s wool and does not pill, unlike other wools. Alpaca thin wool socks are therefore very long-lasting and durable. Finally, alpaca wool is also very ecological. The alpaca is an animal that does not pull the grass underneath him, he cuts it. That makes grass grow back faster than if it was torn out.

Thin socks

At BellePaga, our thin wool socks are made out of alpaca wool. It is important to mention that there a two main kinds of alpaca wool. The first one, the classic alpaca wool and the baby alpaca wool. Our alpaca thin wool socks are mostly made out of baby alpaca wool. Baby alpaca wool is not a wool obtained by a small alpaca but from the first shearing of the alpaca, where the wool is considered to be softer and thinner. This wool is rarer and makes higher quality items. That is why at BellePaga we have chosen to use mostly baby alpaca wool in order to produce the highest quality items for our customers.

How to wash your alpaca thin wool socks?
For all your alpaca items, we do not recommend you to use a washing machine as it will shrink your items and make them last less longer. However, for your thin wool socks made out of alpaca wool, you can use a washing machine in a washing net, at 30 degrees maximum or on a wool program. We also recommend you use a washing net to avoid losing any socks during the wash.
For the drying, we recommend you not to use a dryer but to lay flat the socks to reduce any stretching of the wool and distortion of the socks.
Finally, you can iron your socks but we recommend you to place another piece of clothing between the iron and the socks to avoid excess heat on the wool.
Your thin wool socks are then clean and ready to be worn!

If you wanted to take extra care of your alpaca wool items, we offer different items that could help you make the items last longer.
