Paula's Picks for a Merry Alpaca Christmas

Stay Warm, Wear Alpaca! Be Happy!

Did you know: While similar to sheep's wool, alpaca is warmer, not prickly and has no lanolin.  Alpaca is hypoallergenic and comfortable to wear.

Here are the TOP TEN Alpaca Products that I love! I use them all. 

1

Knee Hi Alpaca socks

Knee-Hi Alpaca Socks

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.  

2

Alpaca Trax Gripper Slipper Alpaca Socks

"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.

Alpaca Leggings

Alpaca Leggings

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?)

Alpaca Bed Blanket

Alpaca Bed Blanket

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). :)

5

Alpaca Dryer Balls

Hand Made Alpaca Dryer Balls 

Why I love them:  Commercial Dryer Sheets have a LOT of chemicals in them.  Luckily Alpaca Dryer Balls do not!  They reduce drying time, soften your clothes and you can add essential oils to them if you like.  Plus they are good for the environment!!!  Win-Win

6

Alpaca Cookie Cutter Not Just for Cookies Alpaca Sandwich

Alpaca Cookie Cutter

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!!

Alpaca Fingerless Gloves

Alpaca Work/Play Fingerless Alpaca Gloves

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

Whimsical Alpaca Ornament

Whimsical Alpaca Ornament

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.

alpaca felt insoles inserts

Alpaca Felt Shoe Insoles / Inserts

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! 
Works well in outdoor boots, indoor shoes and even slippers! Alpaca shoe inserts wick away moisture, saving your shoes and your feet!

Superwarm Alpaca Socks Fan Mail

Superwarm Alpaca Socks Fan Mail Makes us Smile!

We love our alpaca socks, but we really love to hear how you love our alpaca socks!

I love alpaca socks

A recent Superwarm Socks Fan Mail comes from Ryan K. of very cold Northern Minnesota:

"While still living in Arizona, I went back to Northeastern Wisconsin every year for deer hunting. It involves being out in stand from dark to dawn.  It is usually snowing with a bitter cold wind coming from the great lakes.

I ordered the Superwarm Alpaca Socks was because the farmers almanac was calling for an especially brutal hunting season. And they were right!  Almost all the equipment I use is military surplus except my blaze orange jacket and hat. 

Well my feet have been getting cold the last few years. After reading that weather outlook I decided to do something about it. After doing some research I came to the conclusion that your "Superwarm Alpaca Socks" were the warmest.  I wanted a warm, good quality sock, to last last me for years. 

When I left Tucson airport a few days before season it was 83 degrees and sunny.  The second day of deer season it was -18 degrees with the wind chill! That is over a 100 degree change in temperature in a few short days.  I cant say I stayed warm.  I can say my feet stayed warm!  

I wear heavy wool pants and shirts. Normally I wear heavy duty wool socks.  But now I wont wear anything but your alpaca socks while hunting.

I have recently moved to one of the coldest parts of the continental United States. Last year it reached almost -60 below.  All that means for me is I am ordering another pair of socks tonight before the snow starts flying here   I'll be at a hunting camp near the Canadian border in Minnesota.  The cabin is only lit with oil lamps and we don't have electricity. I'm ordering another pair of your socks right away." - Ryan K.
