Alpaca Socks

Looking for some warm alpaca socks, and wondering what people are using. My feet get cold no matter what I do. I have tried it all, good wool socks, liners with wool socks, changing socks, less insulation, more insulation. Nothing seems to make it much better, figure I might as well try these out.

Google superwarm heavy extreme alpaca socks. They are heavy and very warm. But that may not solve your issue. I've tried everything too. I put fresh socks on, near or on stand. One thing I've found that helps not having your boots too tight. Learned that from cold water wading. Loose laces provide more stored air from your feet.



I bought arctic shields and put hand/foot warmers in them. It's the only thing that 100% works for my feet. A little inconvenience that is a potential game changer.

It's a good spot. Just not today.

Something I learned riding motorcycles in cold weather. You keep your torso warm, hands and feet stay warm.

Alpaca socks are great not just saying that because my mother raises them, i tried them out for the first time couple years ago feet stay warm and dry they call them a five day sock. My wife and daughter have been using them for a while now. Her store is called Rustic Rail Alpaca's.

I used to have the same problem I tried everything, socks, new boots etc. etc. Last year I got some Arctic Shields to go over my boots. The first day of rifle season last year my feet were froze by 8:00. I put those arctic shields over my boots and within 10 minutes they were toasty warm. I stayed on stand until 12 which is long for me. If you get those get twice the size of your boot size.
