made in britain
The pattern and yarn to make this lovely warm hat is sent to you with gift bag, care instructions and alpaca story.
Using our comprehensive instructions and fabulous 100% pure, British alpaca yarn, Adie is quick and fun to knit. Adie is the perfect project for learning the short row shaping technique as she is worked sideways in segments and the pompom is a finishing touch. Adie is great to give as a gift or keep as a lovely, warm hat.
Stitch patterns: knit, short row shaping technique with wrap & turn (WT).
Knitted on 5 mm straight needles (needles not included)
There are 10 natural colour options to choose from and all are made with 100% pure British Alpaca fibre (some from our own herd).
This kit's contents are:
1 x Adie Hat Pattern,
2 x 50g balls of yarn,
1 x Postcard of Adie the alpaca (picture on one side and her story on the other)

If you would like us to make Adie for you, our highly skilled knitters are waiting with needles poised.
Purl Alpaca Designs' are exclusive to us and created by Co-Founder, Kari-Helene Rane; they are named after baby alpacas born to our herd or alpacas whose fleece makes our yarn for that year.
Our 100% pure alpaca yarn is not dyed, all the colours are completely natural and the fibre is sourced from English breeders who look after their animals well. It is spun in Cornwall by a specialist spinning mill.
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.
Packed together in a clear plastic, resealable bag (useful for final garment storage) and posted in a blue mail bag (30cm x 15cm); the final posting weight is 200g.
