Alpaca Ready-to-Wear

Horse lovers, gardeners and dog walkers all have to go outside whatever the weather, and these hats have been endorsed by all these people. Hikers and open water swimmers can afford to be a bit more choosy, but they have also endorsed these hats.

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 and has been graded Class 1 in clothing & furnishing by US Consumer Product Safety Commission

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

What our customers say

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.”
