Ski with Warm Socks from Alpaca Direct

If you’re planning an outdoor adventure this winter, don’t forget to take care of your feet! Cold temperatures, dry air & stiff boots work together to wreak havoc on your heels & toes this time of year. Protect your feet from cold, discomfort & blistering with a pair of carefully constructed Dahlgren socks from Alpaca Direct! We stock 3 types of socks designed specifically for cold weather: the Sno sock, the Sno Comp sock, and the Expedition sock. 

Sno socks




For an all-purpose winter sock, the Dahlgren Sno sock can’t be beat. It is a well-balanced sock with padding & insulation right where you want them: under the foot & around the shin. They're available in 3 colors for women and 1 for men.








Sno comp socks




Serious skiers have got to try the Sno Comp line for pro-level performance. All-over compression promotes blood flow to keep your feet warm without adding any bulk inside your ski boot-- great for progressive stance! And that gorgeous pattern down the side of your calf? They're actually wicking "super highways" to channel moisture up & out of the boot. Plus, they look wicked cool. Two colors for men & six choices for ladies!






Expedition socks




On the other end of the thickness spectrum is the Expedition sock, our thickest & warmest Dahlgren sock. It’s an extra tough, extra tall boot sock with added alpaca for maximum insulation. It's your favorite blanket, foot-shaped! Check out the Men's Expedition socks & the Women's Expedition socks from Alpaca Direct.







All three of these socks have Dahlgren’s patented wicking technology, which channels moisture up the sock & away from your foot, keeping blisters at bay. Come feel the difference at Alpaca Direct, your online source for alpaca socks & more!
