made in britain
The pattern and yarn to make this fabulously versatile snood is sent to you with gift bag, care instructions and alpaca story.
Using our comprehensive instructions and fabulous 100% pure, British alpaca yarn, Dusty will be a joy to make. Dusty is easy and quick to make because she is knitted on big needles, in thick yarn and with a very open stitch, it grows quickly and gives a great sense of achievement.
Dusty is a great accessory for all seasons and can be worn in multiple ways; ideal to give as a gift or keep as a loved accessory.
Stitch patterns: knit, purl, k2tog, slip stitches, psso, yarn over.
Knitted on 8 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 Dusty Snood Pattern,
3 x 50g balls of yarn,
1 x Postcard of Dusty the alpaca (picture on one side and her story on the other)
1 x Care Instructions
1 x Recycled brown paper gift bag with rope handles.
If you would like us to make Dusty 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 Dusty 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 250g.
