Fun Giveaway: Two pairs of Alpaca Socks – Please Read Added Note

Yesterday morning we woke up to 8 inches of snow on the ground. That’s on top on the other six that were already there from this past weekend. It’s only December 9th but it has snowed three times here in Wisconsin. It seems we are under a “cold spell” and we are experiencing colder temperatures than normal up here. I call it living in Wisconsin.

But this year my husband doesn’t have to worry about his feet getting cold when he is out cleaning the driveway, thanks to reader Teresa. Teresa sent me an email a couple of weeks ago to tell me ablut these Alpaca socks. Her email emphasized how warm these socks were. The socks are made of Alpaca fiber a hollow fiber which keeps you warm in extreme cold even if your feet are wet, they are softer than cashmere and warmer than wool but unlike wool it doesn’t itch. The socks have NO DYE, no allergens, and are thick but comfy; they are extremely soft in the inside. They are machine washable and tumble or line dry.

If you know someone who is cold all the time, or someone who is exposed to cold weather often give them the gift of warmth. These are perfect for skiers, those who get to shovel the snow like my husband, or people like me who feel cold all the time. In addition to helping keep someone warm you will also be helping a USA rancher and small business owner. Teresa is also extremely personable and helpful. She is currently offering a discount of $1 per first pair of socks purchase and $2 for each additional pair of socks you buy. Just contact her via their website and she will help you along.

But you have a chance to win one of two pairs of extreme weather alpaca socks, your choice of size. This is what you need to do to enter:
