Welcome to our range of Gorgeous alpaca yarns


All the yarn is 100% natural, and either 100% alapca or with a mix of quality sheep wool. 95% of the yarn is from our own or other UK herds, although we have one range from Peru, the original home of all alpacas.

The yarn is processed sustainably at low temperatures and without chemicals.

If you want to use any of the coloured yarn on this page in a kit, order the kit and make a note of your yarn choice in the comments section.

What's so Gorgeous

Virtually all the yarn we sell is from our own small herd of alpacas or sourced in the UK from other UK herds of alpacas. Some is 100% alpaca, others are mixed with up to 25% sheep's wool, also sourced from UK herds. We have one small collection of Peruvian yarns (the original home of all alpaca herds).

We use no man-made fibres or chemicals and our packaging is 100% recyclable

Sustainable Credentials

 Alpaca yarn can be processed at lower temperatures, and no chemicals are used in the process

All colours are natural, and from our own and other UK grass-fed herds.

Alpaca yarn is long lasting, so products will literally last a life-time!

Uniqueness of Alpaca Yarn

Alpaca yarn is popular because it’s 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.

The fibre has a unique hollow quality that means it keeps you warm when it's cold, but keeps you cool when it's hot. It means 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!

lt's even flame resistant!

What our customers say

Sue P

“I loved the way that it came packed in the box with everything that you need to complete the cushion cover. The instructions are easy to understand, I might need some help with the buttonholes. I've probably done about 10cm today, it's been quite therapeutic, the wool is so soft, lovely to handle.”

Jane P

“I needed a warm hat to keep me happy down at the stables mucking out on cold mornings. My lovely hat kept me beautifully toasty & comfy. Really good fit and individual while being on trend at the same time. Fab.”

Anna, aged 13

“I got a Knitting kit. I had a lot of fun knitting my hat. It fits really nicely and keeps me warm and it is really good quality. The instructions are really clear and it was my first time knitting.”
