Description

This is our most popular lightweight yarn. This is our collection of coloured yarns. You can find the same yarn, undyed, in white and other alpaca shades here.  It's gorgeous to knit and crochet with, as our many reviews can testify. The blend is 75% alpaca/25% sheep, and all the fleece is sourced from British farms. No animls are hurt in the process, and indeed are happy to be sheared in late Spring every year.

What our customers have to say about the kits

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.

I  am a relative beginner so not perfectly knitted but pleased with result. Photo doesn't show true colours

Hi,
I am a beginner knitter, and this was only the second thing I have ever knitted. I was a bit worried about changing colours, but it was easy and I LOVE the wool so much. Now starting knitting a Longdrop hat for myself in the same fawn as the cushion.
Maddie E

Very pleased with my jacket. I don’t do a lot of knitting but couldn’t refuse my daughter when she asked if I could knit this jacket. It was more complicated than I thought but learnt a few new techniques with the use of your ‘how to’ videos.

I managed to lose the pattern so was sent another copy by email and first class post. Thank you so much, it is so refreshing to receive great customer service.

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

Beautiful quality - pattern easy to follow. Ordered on Friday, received on Saturday - doesn?t get any better. The hat is warm and soft, and you get to wear alpaca without harming it.

I just wanted to let you know that I finished my cushion yesterday .... sewing up isn’t my strongest point but I am ‘none the less’, chuffed with the end result! I am just about to order my next cushion kit from you too!
Georgie

First class service. There was an unexpected run on the colour I ordered. Emma kept me updated. When the kit arrived, I emailed her to let her know. She was both friendly and professional, and gave me some hints and tips, and it was a great project to make up.

Superfast deivery. Exellent item. I will definitely be ordering again!

Hello, I wanted to show you the finished longdrop. It was so much fun to get back into knitting after all these years, and I loved the beautiful soft alpaca yarn. Thank you.
