Samantha Holmes Chunky Knee Socks
The warmest, softest, longest lasting alpaca socks we've ever produced. They are cushion looped, a fantastic fit and they won't wear out like 100% baby alpaca. A gentle elastication around the arch of the foot ensures that they won't slip down inside your boots. The model in this picture is 6 foot, so they are genuine knee socks, not 3/4 length.
They contain the necessary amount of elastane and nylon to make them last. 45% Baby Alpaca, 40% Acrylic, 15 % Nylon. A higher ratio of baby alpaca would not be as durable. One Size Only: 37-41 (UK size 5-8).
Alpaca Ethical Fur:
The Alpaca fur used in Samantha Holmes’ products is ethically sourced. The Alpacas from which the skins are removed are not killed for their fur.
There is a tradition in Peru which has developed as a result of the death of weaker and very young Alpaca in the harsh Andean Winters. Alpaca roam freely in their natural terrain on the Altiplano of the Andes where temperatures can plummet in the Winter. The fur Samantha Holmes sources is mainly from baby Alpacas - or “cria” - which have died of natural causes.
The farmers do not kill their baby alpacas for their skins because it is not financially viable for them to do so. The skins are tiny. Alpacas can live for 20 years, promising a lifetime of shearing potential of far greater value than a single pelt.
