Alpaca Rain – our best selling yarn is back in stock!

For a little while now we have been completely sold out of one of our most popular colours; Alpaca Rain. One of many reasons is that the Icon dress sample was knitted in this colour and ever since then it has been a best seller! If you have been waiting to order your Icon dress knitting kit in Alpaca Rain (taupe), now is the time to do it!

Our yarn is made from 100% British alpaca fibre. Tracy own 18 alpacas and keep them on a farm just outside Cambridge; Burwash Manor. This year we are expecting 4 crias (baby alpacas) and we are very excited! The babies are due in June and we have a workshop date and an evening event in July where we are hoping to show off the newly born cuties!
We use the fleece from our own alpacas as well as from a few selected local farms and try to be very hands on in selecting the fibre. This way we know only the very best fleeces go into making our yarn!

 Medley is one of the samples we have made using the Alpaca Rain colour. It is one of Kari-Helene’s favourites, but because it is so popular it isn’t always we have enough for her to play with. You guys, our lovely customers, always get first choice!
Medley Scarf, a fun and intersting knitting project from Purl Alpaca Designs
Medley Scarf is a fun knit, lots of different stitches!

The colour Alpaca Rain is not a colour we get straight off the alpacas’ back. It is a blend of colours. Because we never dye any of our yarn and only produce a 100% naturally coloured yarn, we have to get creative with the fleeces we have. Alpaca Rain is a mix of fibre, some Rose Grey and some Red Fawn as well as a little bit White makes the stunning shade you see above. Medley is the closest alpaca we have seen to this colour! Isn’t she a cutie?

Medley; a super cute, multi coloured baby alpaca.

So, there you go, Alpaca Rain is back in stock. We hope you will love it as much as we do!
