The Vicuña Antarctica is the ultimate in luxury, class, and damn-right awesome craftmanship. There is no other sock manufacturer who has had the patience and care to create such luxurious sock with such a premium material.
They say good things last forever, but to be honest – these probably won’t – and it’ll be your fault because you'll keep wearing them all the time! We think having the most sensuous experience known to foot-kind is worth it though!
Vicuna Antarctica has been made to keep your feet comfortable in the coldest conditions. The loop-stitched inner gives the most silky and luxurious feel while the outer makes it hardwearing. The Antarctica is probably the warmest sock in the world!
- 100% luxurious loop-stitched finest alpaca inside for comfort and warmth.
- 100% recycled nylon outside to provide stability and abrasion resistance.
73% alpaca, 20% PA, 4% PES, 3% elastane
Alpaca yarn does not contain any lanolin and therefore does not cause the allergic reaction that can be caused by merino or sheep wool.
The wool of the gods:
Alpacas live in altitudes ranging from 2500m to over 4500m where temperatures can vary between +30 to -20C in one day.
Known as the wool of the gods, Alpaca fibre is one of the most durable animal fibre yarns in the world! Smooth and soft to the touch, it contains no lanolin, which means it is naturally hypoallergenic, while microscopic air pockets give it incredible insulation and moisture wicking properties, allowing it to trap heat in winter and breathe in summer.
Care for your Vicuña socks
It is important to know that natural fibres are especially sensitive towards high temperatures and any changes in water temperature. If your washing machine has a gentle wool cycle, you can wash the socks inside out for best results, or gently by handwash. Please wash separately and only use a Wool detergent. Please do not tumble-dry or dry-clean the socks.
The upside is that you have a natural product and often you do not have to wash them so often as a normal sock, you can even go 5 days or more without having to wash them!
