Purl Alpaca Designs' are exclusive to us and they are named after baby alpacas born to our herd.
Our yarn is made from the best quality fleece from our own herd and if blended, we only work with sustainable and ethical farmers. It is spun in England and we work hard to keep our carbon footprint as low as possible.
Once made, we recommend hand-washing as the best way to ensure Dilly 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.
