Every alpaca farm has a story. Ours began in 2003 and has been guided by our respect for the symbiotic relationships between the land, the animals, and the people. We have come to believe that we are meant to provide forever homes to our alpacas where the respectful interaction between alpaca and farmer brings life into balance.
Once reserved for Incan royalty, this organic and sustainable resource was coined ‘fibre of the gods’. Surpassing other fibres in softness and warmth, it can usually be worn by people sensitive to wool. Its hollow fibres have a high insulating value, and having no lanolin, alpaca can be processed without chemicals. Unlike synthetic materials, alpaca will breathe, keeping you comfortable no matter the temperature. Alpacas with their small environmental footprint, ethical fibre-harvesting practices, and low-impact milling production, present an eco-friendly, sustainable alternative to ‘fast fashion’.
If you’ve never tried a pair, you don’t know what you’re missing! Socks made from alpaca are recommended for people with cold feet, poor circulation, and even folks who overheat. Since alpaca wicks moisture away, feet stay dry and bacteria doesn’t grow. That means you can wear your alpaca socks many times between washings and they won’t smell. Customers start with one pair and are quickly back to sample our entire collection!

I bought alpaca mitts for my family maybe 5 years ago. They're so wonderful. The fingers have all been patched from use, and they're still phenomenal!
It was great to meet your animals. We particularly enjoyed Madonna and her humming! We will be back! All the best and thank you for all of the knowledge!
I have a number of Ballintotas Alpaca socks, my feet are never cold or sweaty, it is so amazing. My feet were always too hot or too cold, now my feet are so comfortable . Try a pair of socks and you will be so happy, you go back and purchase more socks.
