At last we have the updated website! We hope your will find the slightly different layout easier to use when looking for the yarns you want. 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 have worked hard to keep the price rises as low as possible whilst not sacrificing our excellent quality and continuing to pay sustainable prices to the British alpaca owners for their wonderful fleeces. These will now remain current until our next review for 1st October 2014. To all our returning customers, a big thank you for your orders over the last year.
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.
