Just wanted to let you know, just got my order and bought the traveler socks to try them out. Love them!!!!! I’ve been looking for an everyday sock made in the USA and these are it!. -Shawnna
I lost my American Traveler socks and really loved them so much I had to get another couple of pairs! -Charles
These are my FAVORITE socks! We got these in a year ago after a year of prototyping and I've been wearing them pretty much non-stop since then! Winter, summer, whatever. They are surprisingly warm when needed but breath really well when your feet are hot.
Sometimes I even wash them! :)
They're so "odor-phobic" they just keep going and going. I've worn them all through the year. Excellent socks! -Brian, Owner of PurelyAlpaca

Why do socks and shoes have different sizing?..one of those weird garment industry things.... Please see our sizing chart to see the sock size for your shoe size.
*Materials: Made with 100% Alpaca yarn knit onto a nylon frame for added structural support.
Suggested Care: These socks contain a very high percentage natural fiber and could shrink if abused in the dryer. Best approaches: Turn inside out, gentle wash and lightly/partially dry then air dry; or when travelling, hand wash in hair shampoo in room temp water, rinse, roll in a towel to absorb most water then sit out to air dry.
