Where is time going – 5 great ideas for time saving gifts!

We know what it is like; you start out with amazing plans of that Fair Isle Jumper you are knitting for you partner and the jars of home made jam for your friends and all the cookies you are baking and the scarves you are knitting and, and, and… the list goes on but the days until Christmas are disappearing fast!

Here are a few ideas for time saving, thoughtful and fabulous presents:

Our Sample Sale!

Did you know we have a section on our website where we sell off some of our samples? Perfect for when you realise you won’t have time to knit everything you were planning to. The samples are all in great condition, all absolute one offs and all made from our 100% English alpaca yarn.

Who wouldn’t like to get this beauty for Christmas?

Purl Alpaca Designs’ gift vouchers!

Did you know we have started issuing gift vouchers? Some might say gift vouchers are boring, but we don’t think so! Especially when you can spend it on any of our fabulous knitting kits, patterns or yarn! The voucher can be redeemed on the website or at any of the shows we attend.

A gift voucher is not a boring gift when you can spend it on yarn!

A Knitting Workshop!

This has been the most popular gift purchase this year! We will issue a gift voucher for you to give at Christmas and the recipient will get to come to a knitting workshop where they can meet the alpacas, do lots of knitting and have a truly wonderful day!

You too could feed an alpaca an apple!

A knitting kit! 

Give the gift of knitting! One of our knitting kits can be a fabulous treat for a knitter. Our yarn is of high quality and our designs are fashionable and beautifully photographed; a kit makes a truly special present! If your recipient is an inexperienced knitter, why not include vouchers for your expertise and time as a knitting teacher?

A knitting kit makes a great present!

Gift patterns from Ravelry! 

You might know we sell our patterns on Ravelry, but did you know you can send a pattern download as a present? Ravelry provides this neat feature that lets you buy and pay for the pattern file and the pattern gets emailed to the lucky recipient! You can choose from any of our patterns on Ravelry and gift away as many as you ‘d like!

Knitting patterns are great gifts, virtual or printed!

We hope this has given you some ideas for alternative gifts that are still packed full of thought and love! We think home made gifts are pretty special, but these alternatives would definitely do the job for us! Take it easy these last few weeks before the holidays and remember what it’s all really about; time, love and of course food. It’s always about food!
