Allegro is a really easy thing to make from our 100% pure British alpaca yarn; knitted waistband with wrap around shawl, great for all seasons

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.

Allegro is an unusual, wrap around top, with ribbed waistband and open back. This top is extremely lightweight due to its open lace stitch. It is very easy to make and knits up really fast, with very little finishing needed. A superb piece to wear over a summer dress or t-shirt with jeans or as a layering piece for winter. Allegro is great for protecting your neck and upper back against chilly evenings and is so light, you almost forget you are wearing it.

made from:

Purl Alpaca Designs' 100% pure alpaca yarn is not dyed, all the colours are completely natural and the fibre is sourced from local breeders. It is spun in England by a specialist spinning mill.

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 Allegro 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.

dimensions:

Packed in a blue mail bag (40cm x 28cm), the weight will depend on the size ordered as this has an incremental effect. Final posting weight ranges between 350g and 400g.

    Would prefer if needles were included - when it's a present it's hard to know if the recipient has the right needles. Maybe packaging could be better to look more of a gift set, but lovely idea and wool special.
