Wisconsin-based Follow Hollow’s new premium Peruvian alpaca fiber socks boast anti-odor, high moisture-wicking, and temperature regulating properties. And while the fibers comes from alpacas abroad, the socks will be made in the USA. Not just for cycling, these should be ideal socks for everyday wear, keeping feet happy on and off the bike.
Follow Hollow Alpaca Socks
The proprietary yarn of the socks imported from Peru is composed of 80% baby alpaca wool, 15% nylon, and 15% spandex. At a microscopic level, alpaca fibers are completely hollow. The hollow cavity creates a capillary action to move moisture away from the skin keeping the wearer’s feet dry and regulating temperature.
Founder Brian Davis says the Alpaca wool is softer and much less itchy than other types of wool. He’s using Kickstarter to fund the first batch of socks, initially offering just one style in one color in order to, and I quote “not lose my wife, house and two children”. Back the project for $45 and you’ll get two pair when they ship in January.
