ALTERA Alpaca was started in 2013 by Shawn Malloy. Shawn has worked as a product engineer since 1996 when he developed products for the wood and gas stove industry. In 2009, Shawn used his product development skills to design a line of alpaca based socks, Kentucky Royalty.  The Kentucky Royalty line enjoyed great success with alpaca farms across the US. He soon realized that there was a market for lighter weight performance socks and ALTERA Alpaca was created. ALTERA Alpaca socks are tested to military standards which they meet and exceed.

Watch for new projects that Shawn is working on including alpaca fiber base layer.
