  • Detailed Description

    We love this simple style, and it's very comfortable too. Because it's alpaca yarn....

    ... you can wear it out in the rain, and still keep your head dry (proven by us frenquently!); it won't itch, even if it's warm and your indoors or the sun comes out - it just stays comfy; it's super uber soft and comfy; dog walkers, gardeners, and horse riders love it because they can crunch it up to nothing in their coat pocket (better without the pompom for this)

    Supersoft and made in 75% alpaca, 25% wool. Machine washable at lower temperatures. Comfortable and light to wear.

    One size - stretchy fits all adults

     Pompom - we know some of you worry that rabbits are killed to produce fashion pompoms, but we can assure you that all our pompoms are FAUX, but still soft and fluffy.

Why buy from Gorgeous Alpacas?

What's so unique about these alpaca Ready-to Wear Products

Firstly, it's about the alpacas

Although all but one range of the yarn we sell comes from alpacas living in the UK, alpacas were originally bred by Incas in the mountains of Peru, where the temperatures regularly swing from -18C at night to +20C during the day. So the alpacas developed to survive. The fibre has a unique hollow quality, and the trapped air expands and contracts with the temperature.

What that means for us

This means it keeps you warm when it's cold, but keeps you cool when it's hot.

It's also naturally water-repellent. As evidence, we wear our hats in the rain and come in with totally dry hair ... so finally, knitwear that you can wear in wind, rain and sunshine!

The Sustainable Story
  1. Alpacas themselves: like deer, they are ruminants, which means they cut grass rather than tearing it out from the roots like sheep and goats. 
  2. The material: because it contains no lanolin it can be processed at low temperatures and without harsh chemicals. 
  3. All our Ready to Wear is knitted in the UK and the yarn we use is sourced from British alpaca farms, so we keep product miles down.
  4. Alpaca products provide a lifetime of wear...click here for the full sustainable story and 10 reasons why your alpaca garments belong in the sustainable fashion category

What else

Alpaca clothes are popular because the material is so soft, durable, luxurious and silky. In fact, it's stronger than mohair, finer than cashmere, smoother than silk, softer than cotton, warmer than goosedown, and more breathable than thermal knits. While it's similar to sheep’s wool, it is warmer, not prickly, and has no lanolin, which makes it hypoallergenic
