A good friend of mine (the honouarble Mr Challinger) is a third generation sock maker right here in Melbourne. His family is still running the factory out in Melbourne’s East making some of the finest quality Alpaca Merino blend socks available.
These guys are no exception – they are exceptional.
We stock a small selection of their finest mostly because socks and shoes go together like and wink and a smile.
The Ribbed range is only available in Medium and Large.
The Striped version is available in all sizes.
The Yellow alpaca sock is only available in Small and Medium.
Stock is limited. In cases where we have sold out there may be a 4-6 week wait until more stock arrives from the factory. We will inform you if there is a delay with your order.
