Here at Laurel Farm Alpacas we breed alpacas especially for their fine soft fleece. All the natural colours of the alpaca can be seen on members of our own herd on the farm.
We used to have all our own fleece spun into yarn but increasing prices and quantities needed by spinners mean that we now sell our fleece to the spinnng mill and buy back yarn as we require it for sale on the farm or to be made into our quality hand knitted hats, mittens, scarves and other lovely items of knitwear.
We only use UK alpaca.
We hand knit a variety of beanie hats, extended beanie hats, bobble hats, and mittens. Our head knitter, Pam White, is responsible for the design of these fun, practical products.
We also make scarves and some hats on a hand knitting machine which allows for a little more volume for these popular products. This will be clear from the product description.
In addition we have Short Alpaca Walking Socks with cushion soles made in the UK from 75% alpaca, and bedsocks with are 90% alpaca.
