What materials are used to make Siberia Spirit apparel?
The majority of our apparel is made of 80% Altai Mountain goat hair. We also carry socks made of 80% New Zealand Merino sheep wool. The remaining 20% of the content of our accessories is acrylic fibers. By nature, pure goat hair and sheep wool are not very durable materials. To increase the longevity of our products, we add acrylic fibers, which make our socks last longer and provide more days of warmth and enjoyment.
What is the difference between goat hair and sheep wool?
Although the appearance and texture of goat hair and sheep wool differ from one another, both types of natural fiber yarn share the same superior qualities associated with wool. The difference between the two is in the length of the fibers: goat hair is much longer than sheep wool, making goat hair products look fluffier than their smoother-looking sheep wool counterparts.
Which is warmer, goat hair or sheep wool?
Both types of fibers are equally warm. People in Siberia wear socks, gloves, and other accessories made of goat hair and sheep wool on daily basis during the winter time.
How to wash my Siberia Spirit goat hair and/or sheep wool apparel?
Siberia Spirit apparel can be washed in a washing machine on the delicate cycle in cool/cold water. You can use either your regular laundry detergent or Woolite. Do not use bleach or any other harsh chemicals. You can also wash our products by hand in cool/cold water. After washing, lay flat on a towel or hang to air dry.
How often do I need to wash my Siberia Spirit products?
Due to the antibacterial and wicking properties of our wool accessories, they do not need to be washed every time they are worn, unlike cotton or synthetic fabrics. You may wear them multiple times before laundering.
Wearing Siberia Spirit Socks
Can I wear my socks with shoes?
Some of our socks, especially the medium- and lightweight ones, can be worn with shoes, including boots, Ugg-type footwear, or any other fall-winter shoes. Our heavy-weight socks are more appropriate to wear inside the house without shoes. To enjoy our products as long as possible, we recommend not wearing them on hard/rough surfaces, such as concrete or brick… wooden flooring, laminate, tile, carpet, etc. would be more appropriate for them.

2. Work the sock down to where you are able to insert your toes into the end of the sock.
