Solo is a truly practical garment which will keep you wonderfully warm this winter once made from our scrumptious, 100% pure alpaca yarn,

Knitting is the most popular craft hobby in the UK. This wonderful pastime is being taken up by celebrities, youngsters, people from both sexes and all ethnicities.

The Purl Alpaca Designs knitting kits are exclusive, design-led and upmarket. Our fleece is sourced from local breeders (and our own herd); it is hand sorted and graded before being made into yarn by a specialist spinning mill. Only the best quality is used and we blend the natural fibres to create our wonderful colour range. We don’t dye the yarn. Environmentally aware; even our packaging is made from recycled materials.

The Solo Tank Top is a very striking garment; wear it over shirts and pencil skirts for the ultimate office look, or with a polo neck and flares for everyday. Solo can be worn in combination with Hope Wrist Warmers but looks great on its own. The pattern offers enough challenge to keep experienced knitters interested but is still fairly straight forward to make.

made from:

Purl Alpaca Designs' 100% pure alpaca yarn is not dyed, all the colours are completely natural and the fibre is sourced from local breeders. It is spun in England by a specialist spinning mill.

Once returned as yarn, Kari-Helene Rane knits swatch samples of different stitches which in turn, inspire her to create a design which complements both the natural drape and lustre of the yarn, plus the intricacies of the stitch. With both tailoring and knitting as her specialist subjects, Kari-Helene’s designs make truly statement pieces.

The names for Purl Alpaca Designs are chosen from cria (baby alpacas) born to our own herd and alpacas at Houghton Hall Alpacas in Cambridgeshire. The fleece from this award winning herd makes our yarn.

Once made, we recommend hand-washing as the best way to ensure Solo 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 (40cm x 28cm), the weight will depend on the size ordered as this has an incremental effect. Final posting weight ranges between 350g and 500g.
