Product description

The pattern and yarn to make this easy to wear over anything top; sent to you with gift bag, care instructions and alpaca story.

For yourself or as a gift, the Lorelle Jumper Knitting Kit is packaged with yarn, pattern and put in a gift bag together with Care Instructions; a biography card of Lorelle the alpaca and it's packaged together in a clear resealable bag for garment storage.

At Purl Alpaca Designs our products are sustainable, ethical and organic. Our yarn is made from the best quality fibre, hand prepared and spun in the UK. No dye is used and environmentally aware, our packaging is made from recycled materials.

Variations

Obi is designed to encourage new and young knitters to the craft. Deceptively easy to make and weighs only 200g - 400g

Using our comprehensive instructions and fabulous 100% pure, home grown alpaca yarn, Obi is knitted in one piece, with the bodice first, then picking up the edge stitches to create the really easy lace skirt. The flair is created by changing needle size. The top is gathered and the band covering the seam is joined at the back. Then it's making the i-cord and attaching the straps to the back of the body.

Stitch patterns: knit, purl, yarn over, k2tog, Skpo (slip 1, k1, pass the slipped st over)

Five sizes available from X-Small to X-Large

Knitted on a complete set of straight needles from 4mm to 8mm including half sizes

There are 9 natural colour options to choose from and all are made with 100% pure British Alpaca fibre (from our own herd).

If you would like us to make Ophelia for you, our highly skilled knitters are waiting with needles poised.

Alpaca is a fibre that works really well in keeping you warm; looked after, our garments last for years. As a natural fibre, it rarely needs washing as it repels dirt and doesn’t hold smells. Should you wish to freshen it up, we recommend hand washing in lukewarm water using shampoo and adding conditioner to the final rinse. We also provide Care Instructions which gives extra tips on how to look after your Purl Alpaca Design.

At Purl Alpaca Designs our products are sustainable, ethical and organic. Our yarn is made from the best quality fibre, hand prepared and spun in the UK. No dye is used and environmentally aware, our packaging is made from recycled materials.
