Features + Benefits

  • These socks are washed in aloe vera to soothe the feet and prevent sweating, odour, and bacteria.
  • Extra cushioning in the heel and toe for supreme comfort all day long. A fit you'll never forget.
  • Alpaca has unique thermal properties due to the microscopic air pockets found in its fibre, allowing air circulation on warm days and heat insulation on cool days. This prevents sweating in warmer weather, and in colder weather, contains heat for warmth. Wear these alpaca socks year-round in any regular shoe without overheating.
  • No animals are harmed in the making of any Pokoloko product. Alpacas are shorn in cycles like sheep according to the seasons.
  • Luxury made to last. Alpaca is exceptionally durable if cared for properly, and more durable than sheep's wool. Non-itchy, lightweight, breathable, windproof, silky-smooth, resistant to pilling and matting, non-shrinking, water, and stain-resistant.
  • Ultra-soft hand feel, luxurious texture. Soft and gentle on the skin. Alpaca is hypoallergenic.
  • Unisex, suitable for all humans.

    FAQ's

    Q: What are some fun alpaca facts?

    Q: Does it hurt the alpaca to get its fleece?
    Alpacas are not harmed while their fleece is harvested. In fact, alpaca wool is one of the most ethical fibres available. Farmers take great care in gently shearing the wool and releasing the animal back to roam freely. Alpaca fibre does not contain lanolin, meaning it does not require strong chemicals to clean it.
    Q: If I get my alpaca wool socks wet, will they still keep me warm?
    Depending on how soaked your socks are, alpaca has the ability to resist water and, even when damp, provide warmth. The hollow fibres of the alpaca fibre trap air in their core which provides enduring insulation.

    Love them

    Got a pair for me and my husband and we both love them! Super soft, not it itchy at all, moisture wicking even in warm weather. We’ll definitely be buying more

    Love ‘em!

    I ordered these socks because I had purchased a pair in store and loved them so much! They are very soft, durable and just enough thickness for walking or hiking. My second pair was not quite as soft as my first pair which was my only disappointment. Still awesome though 🙂

    Thank you, Annie, for this awesome review! ❤️❤️❤️

    Ordered Alpaca Hiking Socks on the recommendation of a friend who described them as the best socks ever. And she was right...they are so comfortable and warm. I love them. The whole experience with Pokoloko was great.
