Icy Weather Fishing Guide Using Superwarm Alpaca Socks

Bob D., an extreme conditions outdoors guide, tries out our Superwarm Alpaca Socks as he guides a hearty group in a cold weather fishing trip to Wilson's Creek in NC and Paint Creek in TN.

Here are a couple of images I took...I have a few more that are coming  from my buddy's camera for you too Brian...Socks worked great... The water was about 34 to 37 degrees...air temps were 19 or so.

Rained and sleeted while we fished for a couple of days....I have a couple of shots of myself in the water fishing to near the tops of my wader boots....This will give you an Idea of the nature of the cold we are withstanding to enjoy this sport during the late fall, Winter and early spring months.

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. 

 

3

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?)

4

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!!

7

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

8

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!

10

Pacabuddies Alpaca Toy Alpaca Christmas

"PacaBuddies" Stuffed Alpaca Toys

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.

 

 

 Stay Warm, Wear Alpaca!  

Merry Christmas!  -Paula
