Alpaca fiber has some excellent qualities even over fibers like Merino wool. It wicks, resists funk, and insulates with less bulk while staying extremely soft. Those attributes make it attractive for socks but there are few examples of readily available alpaca fiber socks on the market and those that are available often have little actual fiber content. Enter Follow Hollow.
Follow Hollow, founded by Brian Davis of Fix It Sticks, is attempting to launch a sock line that is designed from the ground up to leverage the qualities of alpaca fiber all while not skimping on the alpaca fiber content (at least 80%) and offering the socks at a price similar to premium wool socks.
The Performance Alpaca Socks have been launched on Kickstarter. There is a week remaining and the project is nearly fully funded.
