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 Purdy 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.
