Welcome to Coco Alpacas and to our online shop where we have a range of beautifully warm, soft accessories made from alpaca wool. We have socks for both outdoor and everyday wear, stylish hats, gloves, scarves, throws and knitting yarns. All of our alpaca knitwear is either made from the wool of our alpacas or from UK suppliers.
We have also just opened a shop in Church Stretton on the High Street. As well as our alpaca wool and accessories we sell other specialist yarns, very colourful felted gifts,, craft books, knitpro knitting needles & crochet hooks and we are also an Ashford dealer supplying spinning wheels, weaving looms and spinning/weaving accessories. The shop is open Monday to Saturday 10am – 4.30 pm.
Alpaca wool is called ‘The Fibre of the Gods’. It is a soft, durable luxurious fibre which is as fine as cashmere and second in strength to silk. Among its many attributes it has no lanolin which makes it hypoallergenic and also has a non prickly factor which makes the garments suitable for everyone even for those who are allergic to ordinary wool.
