Description

Our softest warmest hat, made from 50% baby alpaca and 50% baby merino, available in parchment (a gentle off-white) natural colour. The detail in this hat style is in the subtle shaping around the head, which you can see creates lovely evenly spaced darts as the hat tapers.

We love this simple style, and it's very comfortable too!  Because it's alpaca yarn....

  • you can wear it out in the rain, and still keep your head dry (proven by us frenquently!)
  • it won't itch, even if it's warm and your indoors or the sun comes out - it just stays comfy
  • It's super uber soft and comfy
  • Dog walkers love it because they can crunch it up to nothing in their coat pocket (better without the pompom for this)

Machine washable at lower temperatures. Comfortable and light to wear. 

Style details

  • Fixed brim
  • Available in three sizes:  large adult, medium and small/child
  • Pompom - we know some of you worry that rabbits are killed to produce fashion pompoms, but we can assure you that all our pompoms are FAUX, but still soft and fluffy

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!
