The Altera


As you can imagine, many of the materials in your clothes and other everyday products are not natural, they aren't made in the USA and they don't perform when you need it most. Over time that gets expensive... and unsustainable.

In 2013, we embarked on a mission to revolutionize the apparel industry. Our vision was clear: to provide a product that not only meets but exceeds the demands of adventurers like yourself. We recognized the need for gear that performs consistently, regardless of the ever-changing conditions nature throws your way.

At Altera, we stand by the quality of our products. Not only are our socks tested to military standards which they meet and exceed, they come with an unconditional lifetime warranty. We want you to experience the confidence that comes with knowing you're investing in a product that will be there with you for the long haul.

We, here at Altera, are genuinely excited about the prospect of seeing you wear that last pair of socks you will ever need to buy. Your trust in our brand and your continued support inspire us to push the boundaries of what's possible in gear.


Performance + Comfort

Moisture Wicking - We understand the discomfort that comes with dampness. That's why our alpaca socks are engineered to efficiently wick away moisture, keeping your feet dry and comfortable even in challenging environments.

Temperature Regulation - Nature's moods can be unpredictable, ranging from sweltering heat to bitter cold. Our socks are designed to adapt, providing warmth when it's chilly and allowing breathability in warmer conditions.

Antimicrobial Protection - We know that hygiene is of utmost importance, especially during extended adventures. Our socks offer antimicrobial properties to help keep your feet fresh and odor-free.

Hypoallergenic Relief - For those with sensitivities or allergies, we've crafted our socks using hypoallergenic materials to ensure that comfort never comes at the cost of irritation.

Durability and Performance - Your gear needs to withstand the rigors of all your activities. Our alpaca socks are not only durable but they can be worn for multiple days without having to be laundered, ensuring they perform when you need them most.

Proudly Made in the




No detail was overlooked in the construction of our socks. From the sourcing of fibers, to the time-intensive process of custom creating yarn, there's no exception to the thought that went behind every decision that was made. From lightweight to heavyweight, we have your feet covered.
