Whether you like to knit, crochet, or just love wearing alpaca we hope you'll find what you like here. They say that once you've gone alpaca, you never go back! Hats don't itch, sweaters are soft and comfortable, and, if you shop at Gorgeous, you are guaranteed chemical free naturally coloured alpaca products. The colours are produced from alpacas blending their yarns to create unique and lovely colours that will also blend with pretty much anything already in your wardrobe.

If you almost like what you see, but not quite, ask for your own bespoke version and we will see what we can do. Just contact us and ask. 

Knitting Techniques

This is a straight forward hat, suitable for beginners: No ribbing, and only a simple decrease

at the top, by which time you will be ready to learn a new technique, having mastered the main two knitting stitches, Knit and Purl. 



This style uses our beautifully soft alpaca/merino mix of yarn. Everyone loves how it is so soft, squishy and beautiful to knit with. Despite it's simplicity, it's also a really versatile hat: you can roll it up for a tight fit to the crown beanie-style, or roll it out for a long 2020 look! If you want it even longer, there is plenty of yarn left to keep going. It's very lightweight and very flexible so perfect for travelling.



This comes in the natural alpaca off-white. However, should you want a bright non-alpaca shade, like orange, pink or purple, it's ideal yarn for dying with vegetable dyes.


You can choose the colour of the pompom during checkout.
