Hand-knitted, beautiful, bolero jacket with cable edging and central tie; made from 100% pure alpaca which complements most wedding fabrics beautifully.
The Purl Alpaca Designs products are exclusive, design-led and upmarket. Many people have commented on the luxurious texture of our yarn and the exquisitely soft garments it makes. Comparable to top grade cashmere, Bonnie is incredibly warm to wear but weighs little.
Our fleece is sourced from local breeders; 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.
Bonnie Bolero would make a perfect addition to a wedding dress. She is a stunning little bolero jacket with cable edging and central tie. By utilising a modern knitting technique, Bonnie creates a flattering shape around the bust and is ideal to wear over your wedding dress to keep the evening chill at bay.

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.
