Balboa Waistcoat

Balboa Waistcoat

Price Not Announced


Balboa is an unusual waistcoat design, which is superb for protecting your neck and back against chilly evenings and is so light, you almost forget you are wearing it (apart from the copious amounts of compliments you’re getting)!  The effortless sweeping shape and fabulous blackberry stitch border, gives a textured detail to the collar and edge.  Also Balboa fits snuggly into the small of your back and this shaping  is extremely flattering.  Balboa can be fastened at the front with a broach, button or pin to give an extra indication of the hour-glass figure; something to snuggle into during the cold winter months.

Balboa waistcoat is knitted in Purl Alpaca and photographed in colours Alpaca Night (black) and Alpaca Light (ivory).

Alpaca is one of the most luxurious natural fibres in the world, it has insulating qualities, is incredibly light and exceptionally comfortable to wear.  Comparable in softness with top grade cashmere, our alpaca garments incorporate unique design with elegance and style.  Thus a garment is created which will not only last for years, but be something you will want to continue wearing.

All the Purl Alpaca Products are made from the best quality, 100% pure British alpaca yarn (with some of the fleece sourced from our own herd and the majority from the farm where they are kept).  It is spun in the UK before being knitted into garments by one of our team of professional knitters who are also all based in England.

As alpaca fibre has 23 registered colours (with all the shades in between) we guarantee that our yarn is completely natural and contains no artificial dyes.  We develop our yarn colours at the mill by blending shades together, creating uniformity and colour consistency throughout each batch.

No alpaca is hurt in the process either, making our products ideal for the style conscious who enjoy life’s luxuries without costing the earth!

Please allow 21 working days for our knitters to produce your handmade knitwear, although for some smaller items it might be quicker.
