The Vicuna Alpaca Hiker Socks are super soft and comfortable thanks to the use of 75% Alpaca yarn. The strong yet smooth fibre is more durable and softer feeling than even the best Merino wool. The Vicuna Alpaca Hiker Socks are very fast drying with wicking qualities so they're perfect for summer activities and they can trap warm air to help with insulation in cold temperatures.

We've divided up all of the sustainable features we've identified across our product ranges and grouped them into three so you know how your purchase is making an impact: Think Nature, Think Welfare, Think People.
The Vicuna Unisex Hiker Socks has the following sustainability attributes...
Products using natural fibres can range from cotton to wool to hemp and silk - but by being naturally made, they will also naturally biodegrade at their end of lifecycle. Even if you have a natural fibre product, it can probably still be recycled or repurposed before being disposed of. However, if it truly has reached the end of its use, natural fibres need air to biodegrade so please don't dispose of them in landfill.
By recycling fabrics, we are not only stopping extra waste heading to landfill but also reducing the need for virgin fabrics to be created. Recycled fabrics can be anything from recycled polyester to recycled cotton and where recycled cotton is used, it's often offcuts from factory floors that would otherwise end up in landfill.
