made in britain
The pattern and yarn to make this scrumptiously soft and feminine accessory is sent to you with gift bag, care instructions and alpaca story.
Using our comprehensive instructions and fabulous 100% pure, British alpaca yarn, Lucky will be a joy to make. Reminiscent of celtic princesses or queens, the Headband will encourage you to feel like royalty! Its fabulous cable detail looks far more difficult than it is to do and is a great way for a novice knitter to improve their cable techniques in a small and manageable project.
Stitch patterns: knit, purl, cabling technique.
One size: made to fit
Knitted on 5.5 mm 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 Lucky Headband Pattern,
1 x 50g balls of yarn,
1 x Postcard of Lucky 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 Lucky 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 Lucky 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 in a blue mail bag (30cm x 15cm); the final posting weight is 150g.
