FIBER AND ROVING
Alpaca fleece was once called the fiber of the gods by the ancient Inca. Pound for pound it is four times warmer than sheep’s wool, without the “itch” commonly associated with wool.
All our alpaca roving is from Arizona alpacas and processed right here on the farm. We divide it into four grades:
“Royal Baby” (20 microns or less): This is the finest and softest fleece. At this level it is commonly compared to cashmere.
“Baby” (20-22.9 microns): Luxuriously soft fleece. Excellent for use in finished garments meant to be worn next to the skin.
“Superfine” (23-27 microns): A good all around fiber. Not quite as soft as baby, but still fairly comfortable for all but those with the most sensitive skin.
“Adult” (greater than 27 microns): A strong, inexpensive fiber good for decorative Items that will get a lot of wear and tear such as rugs.
SOCKS: We pooled our fleece with two other Arizona farms and sent it off to a mill in Michigan so these socks are 100% made in the U.S.A.! (we’re doing our part to help the economy)
All styles are 70% alpaca, 30% nylon making these socks warm, durable and easy to care for. Socks can be machine washed, but for the longest life of the sock, we recommend hand washing, air dry.
Hiking Socks: These are a heavy, terry sock, so make sure you have room in your boots for them! They are designed for the extreme outdoor enthusiast. They provide plenty of cushion for those long treks in the country side or just padding around the house.
Crew socks: Your feet will thank you at the end of the day when you have them wrapped in alpaca. These light versatile socks will keep your feet warm in the winter and help wick sweat away in the summer. These socks are made right here in the USA from AZ grown alpaca fleece. Crew socks reach to mid calf. By far our most popular style. .
