Lacey Scarf crochet kit includes pattern, 100% pure British alpaca yarn, care instructions and the biography/image of Lacey; packed together in a gift bag.
Crochet is becoming more popular as a craft hobby because it is so portable. Crocheters can continue to make their garments even when flying in an aeorplane.
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.
Never before have we seen so much crochet on the catwalks and Lacey is an easy to make scarf which is a great way to add a bit of the latest trend to your own wardrobe. The stitch pattern is easy to follow and gives a great effect and if you want to be even more creative, it is easy to adapt the pattern for a shorter or wider scarf.

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 Lacey 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.
