Plum of London produce luxury British knitwear from the highest quality grade Royal Alpaca wool. We were lucky enough to be sent a cardigan and beanie hat for Baby to review. I have seen Alpaca’s at various children’s farms and shows, but I must admit I didn’t really know anything about using the wool in clothing and the benefits of these fibres;
As soft yet finer than cashmere
Excellent thermal qualities
Resistant to wrinkling
Not prone to pill like cashmere/wool
Lightweight and lustrous handling
Resistant to stains
Lacks the ‘prickle factor’ associated with wool
Does not retain water – virtually water repelling
Resistant to odours
Wicks away body moisture – maintains constant body temperature.
Resistant to solar radiation
Easy to clean
I was so surprised that Alpaca wool had all these benefits. When the delivery arrived the items were well packaged in tissue paper. The first thing that struck me was how wonderfully soft the cardigan and hat were. Definitely much softer than any wool I have ever felt.
I couldn’t wait to try them on Baby.
So fortuitous for us that the weather is on the turn and Baby will get to wear them much more regularly soon! Both the cardigan and hat are stunning pieces of knitwear, luxuriously soft and beautifully made. They both kept Baby very cosy and she got quite attached to her hat and asked to wear it later on when we were inside!
I have a wonderful giveaway for you! Plum of London have given me a Hand knitted Pure Alpaca Wool Baby Cardigan (size 0-12) (worth £56) and beanie hat (worth approx £20-25) to giveaway to one of you lucky people! Just complete the rafflecopter below. Good Luck, you will wish they were in your size!
Disclosure: We were sent a cardigan and hat for purpose of this review. All opinions are 100% honest.
