Your tootsies will thank you for knitting socks in this lovely color-washed sock yarn. Classic Elite Alpaca Sox contains a generous dose of 60% alpaca with a heaping helping of merino to make soft, warm socks (or mittens!), and the array of colors in each skein makes for real luxury. A big skein of 450 yards makes two socks and then some.  Made in Peru.

My mistake not reading the label, but I simply couldn't imagine selling sock yarn, that had to be hand washed. So after many many hours knitting up soft cabled long socks, I now have a felted sock too small to even use as a sock puppet.

So learn from my mistake, only use for items that won't need constant wahing - like socks do.

    I can't believe how soft this yarn is. I have rolled it into cakes and just sitting next to my chair. Can't wait to start using it.

    Comments about 10.49 Alpaca Sox Overstock Colors:

    Alpaca Sox is a good choice if you love the softness & lightweight warmth of alpaca. It has a very pleasurable feel while knitting & results in such a soft sock your toes just wiggle with pleasure when wearing. After knitting several pairs of socks I follow this guideline; keep the pattern simple as it can get lost in the color & fuzziness. Also socks tend to felt somewhat even with handwashing in Eucalan if washed too often. So, just knit lots of pairs so you can alternate frequently. The finished products are also very durable. No wear & tear in toes or heels.
    Hermione's Everyday Socks pattern works well with this yarn for example. Will continue to stash for future socks.

    Lovely to knit with, and going to make some cowls and maybe socks. The only downfall about this yarn is the hand washing, but really that isn't an issue for me anyway. It is lovely. The colours are gorgeous.

        My daughter has a wool allergy but lives in a cold climate and wants warm hand knit socks. She doesn't mind hand washing so, this is a great choice. Beautiful colors, too
