Happy New Year!
Our new baby alpaca and merino range in glorious bright colours are here in DK, Aran and 4-ply yarns. Have a look also at the knitting pattern pages - new interesting designs from Chrissie Smith and Monica Russel in addition to the usuals. Our new pattern book Mums Knit was a great success at the recent Knitting and Stitching show in Harrogate - our best show ever.
We will be attending many of the yarn shows this year, starting with Craft4Crafters in Exeter. February sees us up at the NEC for the CHSI trade show and then at the Knit & Stitch It show in Farnborough. London Olympia Knitting and Stitching show follow on from this. April sees us at Wonderwool in Wales. May is the lovely Devon County show closely followed by the Royal Bath & West. Hopefully we will be back at Woolfest in Cumbria for June. Fibre East in July seems a bit full so we might have to miss this one. Then the run of Knit and Stitch shows in the autumn at Alexandria Palace and Harrogate Meanwhile we will be at the CHSI trade show at Excel and back to Yorkshire for Yarndale at the end of September. A busy year ahead for us all. Look foward to seeing you all.
UK Alpaca’s luxury yarns are manufactured exclusively in Britain from the fleeces of alpacas farmed in the UK
One of the ‘noble fibres’ alpaca is prized for its silky feel, weightlessness and warmth, and come in a variety of natural and dyed shades in DK, aran and 4-ply weights.
All our yarns are processed at the traditional mills in the north of England and have traceable provenance to British alpaca farmers.
We buy fleece from alpaca owners in the UK, hand grade it at our farm in Devon and then process into fully worsted hand knit and commercial yarns. Our yarns are made to the highest specification and are of a consistent quality.
They are fully conditioned and their consistent quality, super softness of handle, warmth, lightweight and strength are all hallmarks of these yarns.
UK Alpaca supports British alpaca owners by promoting a quality reputation and brand for British alpaca. We supply to both retail and trade, designers and actively support students in their final year projects.
We maintain excellent stocks of yarns and dispatch same day on all orders received before midday. Please see the wholesale section for trade and volume enquiries.
