The ultimate treat for feet and keeping cosy this winter.

Perilla is home to a magnificent range of the finest quality yarn dyed alpaca socks, all made in Britain. A great place to come for gift boxes of luxury socks which make great pressies – the ultimate treat for feet.


Keep your toes warm in bed with beautiful bed socks, most of 90% alpaca but now summer weight mixed with mulberry silk too. For everyday wear choose the plain knit socks, they are all machine washable on a wool programme up to 40 degrees. For walkers and climbers there are thick socks or long socks with soft cushioned soles. Skiers, riders, dog walkers or just lounging around the house the three-quarter socks are perfect, cosy and hardwearing.


As well as alpaca socks, Perilla has a wonderful range of hand-knitted accessories that includes cable beanies, scarves, fingerless mitts and snoods. Other toasty treats include Himalayan cashmere stoles, shawls, pashminas, hand knitted beanies and mitts.


From the ancient royal Incas to modern day lovers of luxury the alpaca’s exquisitely soft fleece has always been highly valued. Four times warmer than any other wool, second only to silk in strength, alpaca is comparable to the softness of cashmere, but it is far more hand wearing. Yarn is imported from Peru, but all the processes are done in the United Kingdom. The yarn is dyed in Scotland, knitted and finished in England. All the toes are hand linked giving a flat finish across the toes.
