Humphrey Law Merino Alpaca Blend Health Socks in Terracotta.
This luxurious and warm sock is a blend of two natural yarns - fine merino wool and baby alpaca. The 19 micron Australian merino fleece wool is sourced from graziers in Southern NSW. The baby Alpaca is sourced from Peru and is soft, supple and smooth containing microscopic air pockets which are perfect for retaining feet warmth. . A Health Sock® with no tight elastic top but note as alpaca is a luxury fibre these socks are not recommended for high abrasion use such as work boots.
The Health Sock® are made without a tight elastic top which does not restrict circulation yet does not slip down into the shoe. Other manufacturers now label some of their products as health socks but they are poor attempts to reproduce the Humphrey Law Health Sock® which is made only with healthy natural fibres, and to exacting technical requirements producing graduated knitting from the foot upwards allowing the sock to “hug” the lower leg.
In 1947 Sidney Humphrey and Albert Law formed a partnership to make socks in Australia. They built a factory on land that had been a lemon orchard in the bush at Heathmont about 20 miles out of Melbourne.
