Perilla

Perilla is home to a magnificent range of the finest quality alpaca socks - the ultimate treat for feet.

This site was borne after looking for really luxurious bed socks for my daughter one Christmas and not being able to find anything suitable. A chance meeting with a local leading alpaca breeder steered me in the direction of the fabulous alpaca socks you will see here. The raw fibre is imported from Peru and greatly improves the wellbeing of the local community. This is then processed into yarn, dyed, knitted into socks, have the toes hand linked to make a comfortable flat seam and are then washed, finished and packed. We use four factories for this process, all in the North of England.

We are first and foremost alpaca sock specialists and yarn dye more alpaca yarn than anyone else in this country.This year we have introduced some exquisite pure 100% baby alpaca knitwear which we will be bringing on site in the next week. This lovely range of knitwear and accessories is designed by a British designer and made up in her own personal workshop in Peru.

Our cashmere has been sourced from an English company who use the highest grade of Himalayan cashmere available. They have taken very great care indeed to help the small Nepalese village who produce their exquisite goods. Indeed their charitable work there is of great pleasure and importance to us.
