I have already bought a few socks (I have very sensitive feet due to an illness) and have never had socks that were so comfortable and warm. I put them on and immediately feel comfortable, I am totally blown away.

Frequently asked questions about alpaca socks for men

Are alpaca socks for men warm?

Thick wool socks or thermal socks made of alpaca wool are the warmest socks, as the wool is the warmest wool in the world. Thin alpaca socks, on the other hand, are less warm and are suitable for spring, summer and autumn thanks to the thermoregulation of the alpaca wool.

Can alpaca socks scratch?

It is important to know that alpaca wool comes in five different qualities that vary in their softness. Alpaca wool can be scratchy in the lower qualities of alpaca, fine and superfine. This is why most alpaca socks are made from baby alpaca wool, which is as soft as cashmere and almost eliminates alpaca allergies such as skin redness.

Are alpaca or merino socks better for men?

Alpaca wool and merino are very similar, so the decision whether to use merino or alpaca socks is not easy. We recommend that you decide based on the intended use. Alpaca wool is warmer and is better suited for very warm socks. Merino, on the other hand, is more breathable than alpaca and is therefore particularly popular for sports socks. Our wool socks and thin alpaca socks are often a mixture of merino and alpaca in order to ideally combine the best properties.

How do I recognize high quality men's alpaca socks?

When it comes to wool socks, the composition determines the quality. Small amounts of alpaca wool of up to 40% are usually cheaper, as raw alpaca wool is already expensive. However, you also forgo softness and warmth. A good alpaca content for socks is 50%, so that alpaca wool can fully develop its properties. The addition of nylon and elastane is necessary for the cuffs and for better stretchability.

Are alpaca socks suitable for men who suffer from sweaty feet?

Alpaca wool is ideal for sporting activities and socks for sweaty feet thanks to its antibacterial and breathable properties. That's why we also have hiking socks made of alpaca and merino wool in our range.

How do you wash alpaca socks properly?

You can wash alpaca socks by hand or in the wool program of the washing machine. Alpaca fibers are hard-wearing and durable, so socks do not lose their shape even after frequent washing. If you pay particular attention to socks that do not pill, alpaca wool is a popular option as a premium wool.

Comfortable, functional alpaca socks for men

Comfortable socks that are worn all day should be made of soft materials such as merino, alpaca, cotton or bamboo. A good fit ensures that the socks do not cut in or slip. Our diabetes socks are the ultimate in comfort, specially developed for the special needs of diabetics. Alpaca wool is ideal for socks against cold feet and, in thinner form, also as transitional socks. You should definitely go for breathable socks, as feet produce sweat and this leads to bad smells if it is not sufficiently transported away from the skin.

If you are looking for socks for work and leisure, we recommend our thin alpaca socks and stockings. For longer outdoor activities or in cold rooms, our wool socks and thermal socks are the best choice for cold feet. Our alpaca socks in vibrant colors bring joy and set accents. We do not have boring wool socks without design in our range.

Characteristics

Special features of men’s alpaca socks

Many men prefer alpaca socks because they offer them the highest level of comfort.

Icon Thermoeigenschaft

Thermal characteristics

Alpaca wool is seven times warmer than sheep's wool and is ideal for warm winter socks. With thin alpaca socks, you benefit from the thermal properties of alpaca wool, which ensures that your socks provide the ideal foot climate without freezing or sweating.

Icon Atmungsaktivität

Functionality

Alpaca socks are breathable, have a moisture-regulating effect and offer maximum comfort due to their softness. Alpaca wool itself and especially in blends with merino, nylon and elastane is durable, so no holes form.

Icon Feder für Weichheit

Best wearing characteristcs

Alpaca socks made from the softest baby alpaca wool are also suitable for people who are allergic to wool and people with sensitive skin. Alpaca fur contains hardly any lanolin (wool fat), which often triggers allergic reactions.

Durability

100 percent alpaca socks are less robust and are more suitable for use at home. Alpaca socks in blends are extremely durable and long-lasting. Even with frequent wear and washing, the wool does not lose its shape because alpaca fibers are long and tear-resistant. With alpaca socks, men are investing in high-quality, long-lasting socks that are versatile and promise maximum comfort for the feet.

Easy-care

High quality often means more complex care. Alpaca wool is the exception to the rule here. Alpaca socks are easy to care for and can be washed in the wool program of the washing machine or by hand. In general, it is sufficient to wash them less often, as the wool neutralizes odors when aired out in the fresh air.

Care tips

How to wash men’s alpaca socks properly

  • In the wool program of the washing machine or by hand wash
  • When hand washing, use a mild temperature and avoid vigorous rubbing
  • In the washing machine: wool wash program, maximum temperature 30 degrees Celsius and no more than 600 revolutions / minute
  • Use gentle wool detergent, do not add fabric softener or bleach
  • Do not tumble dry or iron
  • Allow to air dry lying down (not hanging!)
  • Dry sufficiently so that alpaca wool does not smell after washing.
