- Diabetic neuropathy: A condition in which nerve function deteriorates in the body’s extremities” and leads to a gradual loss of feeling in the hands, arms, legs, and feet.
- Poor circulation: Diabetes causes the body’s arteries to become blocked and hard, thus limiting the amount of oxygen, nutrients, and blood that can be transported throughout the body. Keeping your feet warm can help to improve blood circulation, which is beneficial for the skin and the health of nerves in the feet.
Diabetic socks can play an important role in keeping your feet warm, and some socks are designed specifically to keep feet warm and to improve circulation. Diabetic socks are designed to be gentle, reducing the chance of damage to vulnerable feet and legs.

During the fall, warm days can quickly become a chilly night, and sweaty feet can as quickly become cold feet. Heat leaves your body much faster when your skin wet. Alpaca Therapeutic Socks wick perspiration away, leaving the foot dry and reducing the ability of fungi to grow.
Diabetes can also cause blood vessels to restrict; decreasing circulation to the feet and making the feet feel cold. The alpaca yarn that the sock is constructed from can made a huge difference in a diabetic’s foot health and comfort.
Alpaca Therapeutic Socks are created for those that prefer a more spacious, less-restrictive fit round their lower legs. These socks keep cold, aching feet comfy and cozy, and are especially great for diabetics, neuropathy, rheumatoid arthritis.
There are many different types of socks for people with diabetes. Generally, they’re designed to minimize foot injuries and keep feet dry and warm. Finding the right pair means selecting socks that best meet your needs. The toe seams on our socks are either non-existent or minimized to lessen the possibility of abrasion. All of our socks have nylon on the exterior to further reduce friction while walking.
In addition to wearing the right diabetic socks, choosing shoes that fit well, keeping blood glucose levels under control and frequently checking your feet for signs of damage or changes will also help to improve your chances of keeping your feet warm and avoiding foot complications.
