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. 

For anyone who wants a bit of subtle pattern, and a bit more of a challenge. It includes an optional fixed brim, worked using a conditional caston, but with the option to choose the traditional foldup hat brim.


As with all Gorgeous alpaca DK kits, it's warm and cosy, but lightweight and breathes well. The alpaca yarn has a small amount of 100% natural sheep's wool blended in, which makes it easy to knit with, and still retains that wonderful alpaca softness.


You can choose the colour of the pompom during checkout.


This hat can be washed by hand or in a machine on a wool wash at 20 degrees.


Supplied with 100g (225m) Gorgeous DK yarn made from 75% alpaca/50% wool, 4.5mm needles, a darning needle, and a faux fur pompom.
