made in britain
The pattern and yarn to make these unusual and stylish fingerless gloves are sent to you with gift bag, care instructions and alpaca story.
Using our comprehensive instructions and fabulous 100% pure, British alpaca yarn, Alexis is both fun and quick to knit. It is possible to make two pairs of Alexis from one ball of yarn - great to give as a gift and keep as a practical alternative to gloves. Alexis makes a great set with the Fantasia Cowl.
Stitch patterns: knit, purl, yarn over.
Knitted on 4.5 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).

If you would like us to make Alexis 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 Alexis 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 150g.
