FALKE is the first clothing manufacturer to produce socks from the finest and high-quality wool, the vicuña
Treat someone you love to a pair of exclusive vicuña wool socks from premium knitwear brand FALKE. If you want a present that is nothing but the very best, placing a pair of FALKE vicuña socks under the Christmas tree is your very luxurious bet.
Made of vicuña, the wool of rare Andes animals, this product is the highlight of the Luxury Line collection. FALKE is the first clothing manufacturer in the world to produce legwear from this high-quality wool, considered one of the most expensive and warmest fibres in the world.
The socks is presented in an elegant wooden box, resembling the Peruvian Vicuna’s fine hairs, in time for Christmas.
The 'fibre of the gods' is obtained from the Peruvian vicuña, caught in the wild and sheared only twice a year. Its fine, dense wool was valued as the rarest and most expensive in the world and was reserved for the highest nobility, even in the time of the Incas.
Since the fibres are very delicate, the wool‘s natural golden colour remains unchanged and cannot be dyed.
After the traditional shearing, the soft and incredibly fine wool hairs of the fleece are carefully freed from the coarser guard hairs and submitted to an elaborate hand-washing and drying process. The final step is to spin the velvety, wafer-thin yarns, which still retain their regal grace and elegance to this day.
These limited edition luxury socks – priced at 4,000AED – are available from FALKE store, Dubai Mall.
