Here are the TOP TEN Alpaca Products that I love! I use them all.
Plus 3 NEW products I absolutely love, Love, LOVE!
Why I love them: I have thicker calves and have never been able to pull socks up to my knees. They have just enough give to make this possible. I wear them camping, under my jeans, with my pajamas and they fit nicely in my boots.
"AlpacaTrax" Gripper Slipper Alpaca Socks
Why I love them: We have wood floors and it gets a bit chilly in the winter at our house. I love having toasty warm feet and not slipping and sliding on the wood floors is a bonus.
Why I love them: I wore these for the first time in Pennsylvania at an alpaca show. It was really, Really, REALLY cold! The first day I didn't wear them and I was miserable. The second day I tried a pair. I was so nice and comfortable! I love them!!! (did I say that already?)
Why I love them: We got our first blanket in 2013 on our Alpaca Trip to Ecuador. Whenever we get a new product Brian tells me to "test it and abuse it". I take my job seriously. We've made this blanket our camping blanket. I've washed it at least 50 times and dried it. It's STILL in awesome condition! It's kept me warm on many a cold night!! I also have one of these alpaca blankets on the bed in our guest room and two on our king bed (someone in our family is a blanket hog). :)
Why I love them: I love all things alpaca! Not only is alpaca fiber wonderful, alpacas are so cute!!
I've made cookies with my cookie cutters, but my favorite was when Brian packed us a picnic and made Alpaca Sandwiches!
Alpaca Cookie Cutters, not just for cookies. Hungry? Alpaca Sandwich!!
Why I love them: In the winter we spend a lot of time in the cold. The fingerless feature of this gloves allows me to type, text, play on facebook :) and still stay warm. Proudly Made in the USA
Why I love them: Because they are so cute! All of the ornaments on my tree are special to me! Every Christmas I enjoy the memories as I unpack and place them on our tree. Plus, I love when our alpaca products have a mission! Our Whimsical line of alpaca products does just that: "Working Together for Good" toward helping craftspeople in villages of Thailand earn a living wage, supporting families and sustaining villages.
Why I love them: We go to alpaca shows and almost always we spend a few days standing on our feet on very cold cement. I put a pair of our alpaca felt shoe insoles in my boots and they give me added comfort. Helping to prevent the cold from seeping in and I like the nice cushion of softness!
This natural alpaca fiber shoe insert grown and crafted in the USA will keep you WARM - from the bottom up!
Why I love them: Every year we add a few new Pacabuddies to our "herd". Jax and Lovey travel with us and love to post photos on instagram #jaxandlovey
They make great gifts for the alpaca lover in your life.
This year we got a bunch of new alpaca products and I found some new favorites. I still love my top TEN and couldn't decide on 3 to drop, so I am officially making my list a TOP THIRTEEN!
Why I love them: They are sooooo cute and comfortable and they feel wonderful! I actually threw away all my cotton socks and exclusively wear these socks year round. (unless it's cold then I wear my knee-hi alpaca socks).
100% Alpaca Pom-Pom Channel Beanie Hat
Why I love them: It's warm! It's cute! It's Soft! It's Cute!
The brown one matches my Alpaca Watching Sweatshirt!
Why I love them: It's a busy time of year and It's so easy to just throw my hair up into a messy bun. This hat allows me to keep my hair up without looking like I have a conehead. It's fashionable, warm and cute!
Merry Christmas! -Paula
