New Collection is launched!

Yes, it’s that time of year again when the latest Purl Alpaca Collection is unveiled for the delectation of all knitters. The collection can be viewed from 8th October at Alexandra Palace Knitting & Stitching Show and will be available on our website from Monday 6th October.

This year’s theme combines lightweight knits with lots of lace and as few seams as possible.  Kari-Helene’s favourite piece is the Venus Coat, with its full swirling shape and ’empire line’ bodice, creating an understated elegance.

Whilst Tracy’s favourite is Grace: anyone who has made Balboa will instantly recognise the structure of the shaping detail, but this time, Kari-Helene has created a different look entirely by adding sleeves.

Cyrene is a fabulous tailored jacket with collar and lapels; it just oozes natural simplicity and chic:  

Niobe is another of the romantic knits; a stunning jumper with lace striped detailing. (Kari-Helene loves this image – definitely one with attitude):

In contrast to this, Glacier is a wonderfully cosy, box jacket; designed specifically for our chunky yarn. The simplicity of the design makes this an easy knit whilst the structure, texture and drape makes it look accomplished and luxurious.

 Bryony has a waterfall front with ribbed detail across the yoke at the back for that casual sophisticated look. It’s a great piece for layering, very versatile and comfortable. The clever thing about this design lies in its construction. Knitted in one piece with only two seams it will give even the experienced knitter something to think about!

And the last of our larger pieces to introduce you to is Devon.  This is a seriously romantic, blouson top combining cabling, lace and a drop stitch pattern creating a stunning result:

For accessories, we have two fabulous hats, Holly, with lace knit detail:

Based on Florence Cowl but with the brim turned up and caught with a stylish button:
The Rhea Wrist Warmers have two sides, lace detail on the front and practical ribbing on the palm:

Then there are two types of neck warmer, the lace knit, blouson style Dilly Cowl:

 which is a stark contrast to the more regimented Goldie Collar:

We hope you enjoy the natural simplicity, subtleness and authentic sophistication of the Wonderland Collection.  This also means that the download prices for our Manor Farm Patterns have dropped to £4.00 for the larger size and £3.00 for the smaller. All the patterns from the Wonderland Collection are also available both as download and paper patterns and on Ravelry.

We look forward to your comments and to seeing you soon.
