About us Our garments are made from 100% British alpaca fibre
About Wear Alpaca
Based just outside Hexham, Northumberland, Wear Alpaca is a family-run business, sourcing only the best British fleeces, including those from our own herd Nero Black Alpaca. Our fleeces are then spun at a number of British specialist Alpaca mills to produce soft and luxurious yarn.
All of our garments are made from 100% British Alpaca fibre. They are lovingly hand knitted by Northumberland Ladies, to create truly beautiful and individual items.
Our Collections are created in three timeless natural colours: natural black, grey and ivory.
To compliment these unique and original garments, we use beautiful packaging and promise excellent customer service.
A change in our normal routine last Winter gave Kathryn the opportunity to review the direction of our 10 year old alpaca knitwear business - Wear Alpaca – and this has led to a “Cushion Revolution”.
Until recently, Wear Alpaca has focussed on hand knitted accessories, all in natural colours. Now we have extended the range to include hand knitted cushions in a 'Scandi' (Scandinavian) style.
Our star knitter, Brenda, has been working with Kathryn tp produce stunnibg new designs. Our other knitters are now all engaged too, whilst Kathryn adds the natural shell buttons that finish them off beautifully.
These colourful and stylish cushions are proving to be very popular and we are ramping up production to meet the rising demand. A new FaceBook page has now been created for Wear Alpaca which is also attracting a lot of interest.
Our expansion plans have included the purchase a big plot of land nearby and a large barn we've built on it. Eventually, we will move our alpaca herd there and Wear Alpaca will become an even more fundamental part of our lives – and we can’t wait!
