Alpaca slippers, socks fight the winter freeze

Print Article

Looking for a solution to keep your feet warm this winter? Alpaca Direct in Hayden has the answer with a large selection of Alpaca socks and handmade slippers to keep your feet warm this winter.

Our socks offer a sophisticated wicking system to move moisture away from your feet to keep them warm and dry. Our Alpaca slippers are handcrafted specifically for us by a small community workshop in the southern Andes of Peru and are warm and very comfortable. Alpaca makes the perfect cold weather foot warming apparel since it is five times stronger than wool yet its hollow core fiber is extremely warm due to its natural insulation capabilities. If your feet are looking for comfort, you can't beat Alpaca due to its buttery soft hand that is soft like cashmere but more durable than wool.

If you love to Knit, Crochet or Spin your own gifts, Alpaca Direct also carries a large variety of more than 2,000 yarns and more than 150 different rovings including alpaca, merino, pima cotton, bamboo and quality blends for all purposes. We also stock a full line of fiber art accessories, from handcrafted needles and hooks to spindles and spinning wheels. Crafters of all skill levels, from beginners to experts, are invited to join the Alpaca Direct family through our weekly crafting groups, knitting and crocheting classes, and exciting sale events. Our boutique apparel selection also includes Peruvian Alpaca sweaters, hand-knit lace scarves, warm alpaca hats, pima cotton pajamas, cuddly alpaca teddy bears and unique international jewelry.
