Elton,

Alpaca wool is GREAT!. I have a pair or two of socks but also a couple other garments. You say, "the nylon is to give them stretch". My idea is that it makes them washable in the machine and the opposite of stretch. It helps them keep shape. A 100% alpaca wool sweater almost have to be reformed to your body even after hand washing. Can't say for sure why, but the sweater is quick to absorb the smell of fishmeal??? Better not keep your fishmeal boilies warm in your wellies when you wear them socks. (I've never had a foot odor issue.)

Norm,

My wife nicked a pair of mine also. She wears them about without shoes. Better not buy just one pair.

The most annoying thing, apart from not having MY socks, is that last week they emailed me offering me a pair to give away in the SAN, was almost tempted to accept their kind offer, but it wouldn't have been honest, drat! :lol:

Phone - you could well be right re: the nylon.

Good to see some positive comments here. Usually, if people dare to even mention something that isn't 'budget' on the internet, they get crucified :D
