About Alpaca Socks
We have been creating alpaca socks for more than 15 years and have worked to hone our proprietary blend of alpaca wool and other fibers to best fit the specific use of each sock we make. When you put on a pair of Warrior Alpaca Socks we want you to feel both the instant softness of the fiber and the supportive, foot comfort during all-day wear. Not all alpaca wool is equal. With a variety of alpaca fiber grades, it can be difficult to know if your alpaca socks are utilizing the buttery soft Royal Baby fiber or the roughest Coarse fiber. All of our socks are manufactured from sustainable, earth-friendly, and high-quality alpaca wool. This difference is why our socks are some of the most beloved and top-rated socks available anywhere.
