Perilla luxury alpaca socks [giveaway]

I've got wood floors at my house so I need good socks. Ever consider buying alpaca socks? Alpacas, not to be confused with llamas, are native to South America. And their fiber is soft and strong.

Shop Perilla for great socks!

Located in the UK, Perilla is home to a range of the finest quality socks made with alpaca fiber. Alpaca socks are the ultimate treat for feet. The business was born after looking for luxurious bed socks for the owner's daughter and not finding anything suitable.

After a chance meeting with an alpaca breeder with an interest in producing knitwear, Sandra (owner) was steered in the direction of the alpaca socks you'll find on the Perilla website.

Sandra started the business in 2006 using only British-produced alpaca but couldn't get enough high grade fiber that was needed. She now imports lots of alpaca yarn from Peru. Congrats on 10+ years of business!


And we're going to be giving away some socks!

My wife has the alpaca walking socks in purple, pictured above, and she loves them. Every time she wears 'em she says how comfortable they are. If you're looking for the perfect walking sock, look no further.

These walking socks are warm, thick, made from 75% luxury alpaca, and perfect for winter. Did you know alpaca fiber repels odor and bacteria? This helps the socks live longer.

There are more than 20 natural shades of alpaca fiber, believe it or not. It's soft like cashmere and stronger than wool. Soft and strong is not very common. It's unique in that it's extremely light, yet retains the ability to keep you (and the alpacas) very warm.

My first experience meeting alpacas in July.

All of Perilla's alpaca socks, with the exception of bed socks, are made of 75% pure alpaca and 25% nylon, which gives the socks their shape.

The fiber has a low prickle factor and can be worn by those who normally cannot tolerate wool on their skin. Alpaca naturally repels bacteria and odor, so you can wear your socks for a week without washing them if you want.


Check out the collection for socks, hats, sweaters, and lots of other items. The sock collection in particular is pretty impressive.

So who wants a pair of socks?! The folks at Perilla have been gracious enough to offer a pair of alpaca socks (your choice) to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.
