Indulge yourself with our relaxed fit, luxury Alpaca bed socks.  Perfect for lounging blissfully or keeping your toes toastie in bed, our lush socks are traditionally knitted for us in one of the oldest family-run mills in the UK, using sustainably sourced Peruvian Alpaca fibre, and finished with hand-linked toes for maximum comfort. 

One of the ‘noble’ fibres, alpaca is as soft as cashmere, lighter than wool, and has the lustre and strength of silk.  The cuticle of alpaca fibre is smooth compared with wool, and contains negligible amounts of lanolin, so those who find wool itchy or irritating next to the skin usually tolerate alpaca really comfortably – it’s sooo soft, and becomes even softer with use.

Alpaca is renowned for its incredible insulating and moisture wicking abilities, meaning your feet stay dry and warm in winter, and dry and cool in summer. It resists pilling and is naturally deodorising – in fact its antibacterial and odour resistant properties mean that alpaca socks can be worn frequently between washes.

These beautiful animals are gently shorn every 12-18 months by the indigenous farmers who nurture them in the Peruvian Highlands, so as well as being fully biodegradable, their fleeces are a sustainable and completely renewable material.  What’s not to love?!

Beautifully boxed for easy gifting.

  • 90% Alpaca, 10% Nylon (just a drop, for durability)
  • Traditionally knitted in the UK, with hand-linked toes for extra comfort
  • Sustainable, renewable and biodegradable natural fibre
  • Incredibly light, yet supremely warm
  • Hypoallergenic, antibacterial & odour resistant
  • Superior breathability & moisture wicking
  • Perfect temperature regulation, all year round

We recommend our relaxed-fit, luxurious Alpaca Bed Socks for lounging (stylishly!) at home, wearing with slippers or keeping your toes cosy in bed.  For socks better suited to day to day wear with outdoor shoes, we suggest our classic fit, un-dyed Alpaca Everyday Socks.

CIORA SLIPPERS SIZING

 

It's not always easy to choose footwear without trying it on, or when buying for others. Sizing can be confusing - there's no single industry standard size conversion in use, sizing can vary from brand to brand, and many people take different sizes depending on the brand and style of shoe.

We've done our best to give accurate sizing conversions through a lot of research, comparison with other major brands and customer feedback.

Generally we advise choosing the size you usually take in other footwear, rather than sizing up, as most of our customers find our slippers run pretty true to size. Our footwear is made in full EU sizes, and our UK sizing is determined against that.  You may find it useful, therefore, to check the EU sizing on your other footwear and be guided by that. 

General fitting advice:

  • If you find you mostly take a half-UK size in different shoe brands/types, we normally advise that unless you have feet which are very wide, or are prone to swelling, or have significant foot changes such as bunions, you consider going down the half size.  This advice works for most people.  However, if any of the above factors apply – or if you intend to wear thick socks with your slippers, then we advise sizing up.
  • It’s normal for our eco-tanned, natural sheepskin slippers to feel a little tight on first wearing – but the thick sheepskin wool lining will very quickly settle around and support your feet, and the soft suede will relax, giving more room after a short while.  There is a lot more give with our sheepskin than there is in slippers made from synthetic materials or outdoor shoes, and the sheepskin suede is very soft.  Soft-soled styles will tend to give a little more than hard-soled styles, and will be more accommodating once they relax.
  • Our non-itchy sheepskin wool linings and insoles will wick moisture away from your skin, leaving your feet warm and dry in winter, cool and dry in summer.  We advise wearing them barefoot so that you can fully enjoy the benefits of this wonderful material. The fleece won't normally get stinky (like synthetic materials or trainers will) because of its antibacterial and antifungal properties.

** Our Sula Sheepskin slide slippers are a slightly neater fit than the rest of our range - so if you're usually a half-size in a shoe, we recommend choosing the next size UP in Sula **

 

Every pair of our slippers are hand-made, so our stated sizes reflect sizing as accurately as possible.

CIORA MITTENS SIZING

Ciora mitten measurement diagramYou should measure hand length from level of wristbone to tip of middle finger, and width across the middle of the palm (below the four fingers and above the thumb, as in the diagram).

The mitten dimensions given below are the OUTSIDE measurements of the product - we advise adding an extra 2cm onto your hand measurements when choosing the correct size.

As all our mittens are handmade, there may be slight variations of a few millimetres; our stated sizes reflect the size as accurately as possible.

CIORA BABY BOOTIE SIZING

You should measure your child's feet from back of heel to end of longest toe, and across the widest part of the foot (ball of the foot), making sure to allow at least 1-1.5cm of growth room over and above the foot length. Measure both feet, and size shoes for the larger foot.

All dimensions given are for the outside length and width of the Bootie sole, and you may find this a more accurate guide to sizing than the average age listed - babies don't come in a standard size after all (though they're all gorgeous of course!).

As all our booties are hand-made, there may be slight variations of a couple of millimetres; our stated sizes reflect the size as accurately as possible.
