STOCKISTS – Patterns and Yarns
We’ve been selling parts of our collections with this company for five years. Now their advertising campaigns are promoting them into every household!

This lovely little Cambridge yarn store stocks our patterns, yarn and knitting kits. Sarah will be at hand with advice and help if needed.
Knit with Attitude
You can find this gem of a shop in Stoke Newington in London.
The Knitting Hut (Woburn Sands)
A lovely little shop and Sue has her meerkat patterns and kits available too.
Tall Yarns (Gragshott)
A fabulous eclectic mix of craft materials.
Asa Argeus has just taken delivery of our yarns and patterns. Look her up when you’re next in the area.
Create & Craft TV
No shows lined up yet for this autumn, but keep an eye on our news and events and we’ll let you know when we’re back on the small screen.
OUR SOCIAL MEDIA FAVOURITES
A very useful on-line community providing a wealth of knowledge. Please join our group as this is where we offer individual tuition if you get stuck. You can meet with other knitters, offer and receive advice or tips and start to make new friends.
We are on the online community of Twitter. Here you get updates on our day to day work, alpaca news, pictures and other knitting related news.
This is our online inspiration page and virtual scrap book. We collect images we love and that gives us inspiration.
Why not join our Facebook group? We have a growing community on Facebook and love keeping in touch with you all!
A library of knitting techniques – simply a must have place to start if you’re not sure about how to knit something.
OTHER GOOD STUFF!
Our new venue for workshops as our gorgeous herd is living in the fields by the car park. Loads to do and a fabulous food hall and cafe (for those moments when it just has to be tea and cake time)!
The Natural Fibre Company
A wonderful medium sized mill which started processing our beautiful fibre into yarn in 2014. Customers will see all sorts of improvements (such as batch numbers) and the final product has a more uniform feel to it.
For our first photoshoot we used the photographer Vanessa Ellis. She helped us get the mood just right for the Flowerfields collection through clever use of the natural surroundings at Scotland Farm. We loved the romantic result!
For our subsequent photoshoots Tiffany Mumford has joined the team, and we couldn’t have been happier with the result. Tiffany showed great enthusiasm and initiative with the shoot and was involved from beginning to end. We love the playfulness of her shots and how she brings out the best of every collection.
A lovely little article on Purl Alpaca Designs on the Norwegian Embassy website. They have been great supporters of our company.
UK Hand Knitting
This is a great website full of information to benefit knitters. Great work to teach children to knit as well!
