Purl Alpaca raises their own alpacas on a farm in Cambridgeshire. They also source fleeces from other small Cambridge and Devon alpaca farms. The yarn is spun in Cornwall. The yarn uses no harmful dyes, instead the colour comes only from the beautiful natural shades of the alpacas themselves!
Their Field-to-Fashion approach means that Purl is involved in every step of the creation of their yarns, following the Alpacas from birth, their first and later shearings. The next steps are taking care with how the fibres are treated in the mill to make the wonderfully soft Purl yarn. Finally the yarn is combined with a gorgeous design collection so that you can create your new favourite garment or accessories.
The Purl Alpaca Medium is a classic weight, luxurious yarn with a lovely stitch definition which shows off lace and cabled garments for adults and children perfectly.
