Ribbed raglan jumper knitted in custom alpaca yarn, spun in the Scottish Borders.

Ribbed raglan jumper knitted in custom alpaca yarn, spun in the Scottish Borders. Crew neck with fashioning details. Knitted on a traditional dubied knitting machine. Incredibly soft and hypo-allergenic, perfect for those who find wool itchy.

Genevieve Sweeney has hand-selected fleece from The Border Mill’s herd of Alpacas to create unique yarn, spun from family connections within the herd to give a distinctive, individual look and feel with blends of natural colours. The micro mill processes the fleece through modern machinery to the highest standard; attention to detail is noted at every stage of the spinning process. Every garment is produced within the UK and has an incredibly soft feel that emphasises the characteristics of alpaca fibres. Every yarn is exclusive and every garment, completely individual.

This product is made to order with a typical 2-week lead time.
