A technically challenging cardigan to make, Beauty is a stylish adornment to an evening dress; create her from our 100% pure British alpaca yarn,

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.

Beauty is a lovely, little cardigan with lots of interesting knitting techniques and stitches. The pattern includes horizontal and vertical knitting, blackberry stitch, seed stitch, rib and 3D shaping on sleeves. All the small panels and different stitches makes Beauty a very fun project to work on, but with few seams to sew up at the end!

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 in Cambridgeshire. The fleece from this award winning herd makes our yarn.

Once made, we recommend hand-washing as the best way to ensure Beauty 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 resealable, clear plastic bag (which you can later use for garment storage), then in a blue mail bag (30cm x 15cm); the final posting weight is 400-700g.
