The reason why everyone should have a pair of alpaca socks:
They are breathable, temperature-regulating, self-cleaning, sustainably produced, and very durable.
You will never have cold or sweaty feet again because the alpaca is capable of storing heat under freezing temperatures, and it releases excess heat when it warms up. This is because alpacas do not have a summer and winter coat, but a fleece. This warms and cools them equally. So, no wonder that our socks are so popular!

Abolengo alpaca sports socks
Enjoy the day on the slopes with the innovative Abolengo alpaca ski socks. The function socks – the highlight of our sports socks made of finest baby alpaca.

The padding on particularly exposed areas helps to reduce pressure points. Abolengo alpaca stockings offer protection while maintaining balanced shoe contact and sound power transmission. Quick heat and temperature regulation, combined with an anatomic fit, guarantee a high level of comfort for a pleasant skiing day. Be careful when skiing.

The alpaca socks offer the best support in every kind of terrain.
The Abolengo alpaca socks provide ultimate comfort for hiking in natural terrain even under warmer weather conditions.
The full padding in the middle offers appropriate protection as well as good shoe contact. A perfect temperature is created, and moisture-wicking is guaranteed. The alpaca sock, premium, provides an ideal fit.
The anatomic Abolengo fit with an extra flat whipped seam for a pressure-free toe gives you a comfortable wearing feeling and lots of fantastic hikes. The reinforced stress zone ensures maximum durability. Nevertheless, we always emphasize that the excellent shoe climate of our Abolengo socks is due to the high content of baby alpaca, and thus their strength can certainly not be compared to a synthetic sock.
Our advice for proper care
Alpaca wool is a particularly fine fiber that requires special care, even though it is very robust, weatherproof, self-cleaning, and dirt-repellent.
Often, airing the alpaca socks is sufficient.
If the socks need to be cleaned, though, they can be washed at 30 °C/86 °F in the wool wash cycle.
When hand washed, please avoid rubbing the socks.
Do not tumble dry your alpaca socks by any means. Do not hang up your socks on the washing line; instead, dry them in a flat position.
Store your cozy socks in a closed place, and make sure that they are protected against moths. Our alpaca soaps and cushions are made with cedar or lavender filling and help to keep moths away in a natural way.
We wish you lots of pleasure!
Abolengo alpaca socks are comfortable, breathable, and provide good surefootedness. Socks are a clothing garment that is wrongly underestimated, as they have to perform essential functions: They are directly involved in preventing blisters on the feet. An optimal fit protects foot, ankles, and toes from friction and injury, movements are cushioned optimally, and moisture is quickly dissipated. Our socks are comfortable and wrinkle-free, and the skin is either being cooled or warmed – depending on the requirements – that is why we are using a high content of alpaca. The perfect hiking socks also enhance the overall wearing comfort of your hiking boots. Our original alpaca socks are reinforced in the heel, ball of the foot, and on the toes, as these are the most stressed zones of the foot when hiking and walking.
The Abolengo alpaca cuddly socks – already a super-class true class
The Abolengo alpaca cuddly socks are high-quality processed, warm, soft alpaca wool socks for your leisure time. These absorbent, soft alpaca wool socks pamper your feet and keep them warm and dry. The extra reinforced heel and toe guarantee for a long alpaca sock life. The thermal properties of these cuddly alpaca socks are genuinely unique. We have blended sheep’s wool and polyacrylic into the Abolengo alpaca cuddly socks. In this way, the Abolengo alpaca cuddly sock is more robust and, at the same time, softer and more elastic. The Abolengo alpaca cuddly socks appear to be self-knitted, and they are available in all sizes from EU 35 to 50/ UK 3-15/ US 3.5-15.5. We have processed five different natural tones. Particularly popular are the colors light grey and natural white. Farmers and hunters prefer the model in anthracite instead.
Tips from Abolengo: Alpaca socks, a little wonder
How do you measure a quality alpaca sock?
The alpaca sock waistband
The waistband is a critical and serious topic for us. It is about both medical needs and personal preferences. We are convinced to have found the optimal sock waistband for our alpaca socks. You can notice the excellent quality by the right balance between pressure and durability. Our soft border combines all this. It exerts as little pressure as possible. Signs of stress on the skin should disappear within 5 minutes after wearing the socks for one day. We have chosen to make our cuffs a bit broader than the standard ones so that the pressure can be spread over a larger area. Also, this prevents annoying slipping. Our alpaca socks are also very suitable for elderly people and diabetics.
It is all about the composition of the alpaca sock
We have been working for a very long time on the perfect composition. The high alpaca content provides a cozy, comfortable, and pleasant feeling in the shoe, always dry. The low containment of polyamide, commonly known as nylon, ensures a longer life for the socks and makes them more durable. The elastane component provides for a perfect fit; the socks remain in permanent shape.
When wearing and washing the alpaca socks, lint will naturally occur. This is only natural, and it is even an indication of good quality. The higher the proportion of baby alpaca, the more sensitive the product. We try to keep the lint to a minimum by processing and finishing the alpaca socks very well.
Colorful alpaca socks
We have also been producing part of our alpaca socks collection in different colors for a while now. That is, the precious baby alpaca fleece is being gently dyed. We have chosen to dye the yarn instead of dying the finished products, as it gives the socks a more beautiful color brilliance. The thread in its original state has a far larger surface area to absorb the color.

Alpaca insoles 10€
An exceptional highlight of our collection is these insoles. Combined with our alpaca socks, these are the absolute non-plus-ultra. You cannot get a better climate in your shoes.
These felt insoles are our one cause for pride. The hair of the legs and necks of our alpacas is processed into huge felt rolls. Thanks to a small manufactory with an open-minded owner, we get the mats in exactly the thickness we want. We then have the mats cut there immediately into shoe soles in the sizes EU 21-50/ UK kids 5-13; UK unisex 0-15/ US kids 5.5-13.5; US unisex 0.5-15.5. After that, we send the soles for latexing the underside three buildings away (we are pleased about the short trip).
We are so happy that we can use the coarser and uneven fleece from the legs and necks of the alpacas so wonderfully for processing it into such an excellent product. Up until a few years ago, we had no use for this alpaca quality. We only use the first quality material in our alpaca duvets and pillows. One can genuinely feel that. The wool from the neck and legs was piled up in substantial bed sacks. Meanwhile, it is also in short supply. Not only due to the soles. We also use it to produce our soap. But that’s another story.
A tip for the summer. When the socks are out of season, just put the felted insoles in your sneakers and wear the shoes barefoot. They are wonderfully soft, dry, and comfortable all day long.
You can never have enough alpaca socks. Especially when there is such a great variety, the choice is not made easy. They are ranging from the thin business socks “your alpaca socks” over the comfortable premium socks up to the hand-knitted baby alpaca luxury feel-good socks made of untreated baby alpaca yarn. And so, here we are showing all of the things an epicurean can wish for in his comfort zone. But how can our alpaca socks be sustainable? Quite simply. The luxury feel-good sock is knitted by hand from untreated baby alpaca yarn, partly using hand-spun yarn. The people involved in the social activities are paid fairly. Schools and social institutions are supported. The knitting women can make their living for themselves and their children independently. Most of the projects we are working with are located in Lima and the mountains above Arequipa. Fair trade and social responsibility are the least we can do.
