Why Our Socks?

We don't even know where to start...

Because We Care

At Socks & Tales we have a clear goal to achieve for every pair of socks you wear:
Beautiful to your eyes, smooth on your feet, great for our planet.


Because of the awesome raw material

Our socks are made from a very special hair of animals that typically live at high altitudes – no, we are not talking about the Yeti. The mysterious yet wonderfully goofy looking animal is the Alpaca. Alpaca fiber, also known as the ‘Fiber of the Gods’ has very special abilities that are unique to its kind. But why is it so much better than normal wool? Well, first of all, it is not wool – it is hair. While we will not go into the detailed differences between hair and wool (since it’s very likely that neither of us are microbiologists), this fine technical difference leads to substantial advantages over most natural fibers.

Let’s take a closer look.


Because if You don't Like Them We'll send a Pair to Your Enemy of Choice

If you are unhappy with the socks you get from us, let us know. We’ll happily send a pair along with a personal note to your worst enemy – shall they be annoyed with those bad socks.

Alternatively, if you don’t have enemies, you’ll get your money back.
