Alpaca Festival Socks

Alpaca Socks – The Ultimate Festival Essential!

With Music Festival Season time about to start and all the fun and festivities that entails, packing your clothes to take can be a tricky decision. Will it be hot and dry or will it be wet and muddy? Also you may have limited space to pack clothes if you are sleeping in a tent! Welly Boots are a must for any festival goer and what could be better than Alpaca Socks inside those wellies? They will keep your feet warm and dry whatever the weather!

Pack The Right Clothing
Staying dry means you need to pack the right clothes. Don’t forget to pack your waterproof clothing, or wear it if the weather is already bad. Take plenty of warm, soft socks and pack gloves and a hat too. This will help you to stay warm and dry.
As I’ve said before, the fantastic insulating properties of Alpaca not only keep feet warm, but also help to keep them dry too! If it does turn out to be raining and muddy, your feet will still be happy! When it warms up they will regulate your bodies temperature meaning that your feet will still be comfortable.

Health Issues And Alpaca Socks
If you have a medical condition, then choosing the correct footwear is extremely important. For instance, people suffering from neuropathy may find woollen socks too uncomfortable to wear. Alpaca offers an excellent alternative due to its hypoallergenic properties and its naturally soft feel. Also those people suffering with arthritis or other joint problems find alpaca socks beneficial because of the added warmth and comfort they offer.
Hikers in particular suffer from many common foot problems, such as athlete’s foot, or trench foot due to the fungus that grows when feet get wet due to sweat or outside elements. Blisters are another well known problem, which can be worsened by friction caused by damp feet. Alpaca socks will wick away this moisture and keep your feet nice a dry, and the silky texture of the fibre means the friction is almost non-existent!

The Benefits of mixed blend Alpaca Socks
Alpaca is often blended with synthetic materials, which offers added benefits to the wearer. For example, alpaca is often blended with nylon or acrylic when used in socks. This is to provide added shrink resistance, durability and flexibility. Not to mention the fact that nylon is also lightweight and has its own wicking properties. Therefore, helping to keep moisture to a minimum.
Foot care can often be forgotten about in outdoor life. However, by making the right choice when it comes to your socks you can lower your risk of developing fungal infections and blisters, while keeping your feet warm, dry and comfortable. Add to your alpaca socks a suitable pair of walking shoes or boots to protect feet and ankles and layer up with the right clothing and you’re good to go, whatever the weather!
