Nuna’s grass roots sock mill is steeped in long Island farming heritage.

In 1635, 3 brothers traveled from Europe to America. They settled in Southold, New York, becoming some of the first thirteen settlers.

The extended 12th generation family has taken a more tactile path to farming, producing socks from local farmers in the sheep and wool industries.

Nuna’s collaborative grass roots relationship supports the farm to fashion trend and the growing desire to buy local and buy natural.

SOCK CONSTRUCTION: Hand made on machine…toes, cuffs and heels are hand linked on machine and hand steamed.

Alpacas are native to mountains of Chile, Peru & Bolivia. Natural color ranges come in more than 20 shades. Nuna Knits offers you a small sampling in 7 natural & dyed shades. Our superfine alpaca socks are American made in classic boot, heavy wt. terry and crew styles.

ALPACA FIBER CONTENT: 72% (highest sock content available)
superfine alpaca (25.9 micron) and guard hair free. Synthetic fibers: 20% nylon, 2%elastic for durability. These fibers do not hinder the “thermal” warmth properties that keep your feet warm in the winter and cool in the summer.


WASHING INSTRUCTIONS: Wash with like colors in cool water, gentle cycle, tumble or air dry. they are durable and can be washed easily without excessive shrinkage or felting. Nuna’s alpaca socks have a higher elasticity then other socks made from this natural fiber. Therefore, socks may look smaller after they’re washed. Once worn, they will return to your original shoe size to fit your feet again. Alpaca socks wick away moisture, so your feet will stay dry and odor free summer through winter.
