These mid calf
socks are perfect for skiing, skating and keeping you warm in the winter. Give this style a try and fall in love with the warmth and comfort they will bring to your feet.
In order to be well equipped, BellePaga strongly recommends alpaca wool, for its many virtues. We tell you about it below, with some fashion tips to boot!
The Alpaca Advantage
The most important qualities of a good pair of mid calf
socks are its warm
. All of these things and more are achieved through the power of the alpaca wool
. The Alpaca
is an animal that lives in extreme conditions, therefore they have very thermoregulatory wool in order to survive in this harsh climate. This means that it will keep you warm in the winter time and cool in the summer. It is also a breathable wool, which means that it will not sweat. In winter, alpaca wool will protect you 7 times more than sheep's wool, so you are ready for the seasonal cold! It is one of the warmest in the world.
Furthermore the wool is incredibly soft, it was once reserved for the emperor in the ancient time of the Incas and was called ‘the wool of the gods’. Nowadays, thanks to Bellepaga, the super soft wool is available for everyone. It is also very durable, about 7 times more resistant
than sheep’s wool. Each alpaca produces, about 3kg of wool versus 150g for sheep so less alpacas are required to make more socks. These high quality mid calf socks will last many usages, making it a practical choice.
Alpaca fibre is also hypoallergenic and suitable for the most sensitive skin. It does not contain lanolin, a fatty substance that often causes allergies. Unlike other wools, alpaca wool mid calf socks can be worn next to the skin due to its incomparable softness, without causing irritation and redness.
The maintenance of the mid-high socks is very simple, they are machine washable at 30 degrees with an ordinary or delicate wool soap, mixed with your other clothes. Their resistance allows them to withstand numerous washes. The dryer is not recommended. To avoid damaging your alpaca wool items, dry them flat in the open air. To avoid losing your pairs of socks, you can gather them in a washing net. To find out more, go to the Care
The Bellepaga Promise
At Bellepaga we believe in fairness
, that is why we are very passionate about sustainable
and fair trade
. All of our products uses this amazing alpaca wool that is collected from free range alpacas which live in their natural environment. The alpaca is a very naturally eco-friendly animal as it has a low carbon footprint. They live in the mountains which negates the need for pastures, which are harmful to the environment. They also graze on grass and do not pull up roots like goats do, which is better for the grass and allows it to grow back faster.
We also work very closely with our farmers, breeders and craftsmen to ensure everyone is receiving fair wages for their work. Bellepaga carefully chooses ethical and fair partners to work with to ensure the best possible quality
. Each product, including mid calf socks, is made or finished by hand using traditional and unrivalled skills.
Finally, BellePaga is committed to not using artificial dyes. One of the qualities of alpaca wool is that it has a varied natural colour palette of 22 official colours, which makes it possible to reduce or even exclude chemical dyes. BellePaga is committed to not using these artificial modifications and to using mineral dyes when the natural colours do not match the desired dyeing. This choice avoids fading during repeated washing. Moreover, the more the baby alpaca fibre breaks down during washing, the softer it is!
BellePaga therefore has values of respect for workers as well as for animals, the environment and ancestral know-how, all the while proposing sustainable and quality products.
