Made in Britain
Adie is a great introduction to short row shaping and is easy to make from our 100% pure British alpaca yarn; wonderfully warm too.
Knitting is the most popular craft hobby in the UK. This wonderful pastime is being taken up by celebrities, youngsters, people from both sexes and all ethnicities.
The Purl Alpaca Designs products are exclusive, design-led and upmarket. Our fleece is sourced from local breeders (and our own herd); it is hand sorted and graded before being made into yarn by a specialist spinning mill. Only the best quality is used and we blend the natural fibres to create our wonderful colour range. We don’t dye the yarn. Environmentally aware; even our packaging is made from recycled materials.
The perfect project that will keep your ears warm this winter - the pompom hat! Adie matches the Charlie scarf and makes a great set. This hat is quick and fun to knit, uses short row shaping and is worked sideways in segments so it is different and exciting to make! Wear it rolled up with the pompom in a point at the top or with the pompom dangling loosely; it’s cute either way!

Once returned as yarn, Kari-Helene Rane knits swatch samples of different stitches which in turn, inspire her to create a design which complements both the natural drape and lustre of the yarn, plus the intricacies of the stitch. With both tailoring and knitting as her specialist subjects, Kari-Helene’s designs make truly statement pieces.
The names for Purl Alpaca Designs are chosen from cria (baby alpacas) born to our own herd and alpacas at Houghton Hall Alpacas in Cambridgeshire. The fleece from this award winning herd makes our yarn.
Once made, we recommend hand-washing as the best way to ensure Adie keeps shape and lasts for years. We do however provide Care Instructions which gives extra tips on how to look after your Purl Alpaca Design.
