Does Alpaca Bobble?

Dec 14 2012

In a word…it shouldn’t, please read on!


A customer told us: “I’ll take alpaca over cashmere any day. It is greatly underestimated and one of the best investments anyone can make in clothing! My two year old poncho still looks brand new!”

Did you know all these benefits about alpaca?

Alpaca is a fantastic fibre, below are some of the many benefits:

100% alpaca doesn’t tend to bobble or pill

It is extremely hard wearing and durable, the garments last years and years without loosing their shape

Alpaca is lightweight yet extremely insulating

It is the viable luxurious alternative to cashmere

It is soft, smooth and silky to touch and has a shiny lustre

Alpaca has a wonderful drape which flatters the wearer

It doesn’t contain lanolin, so it could be classed as hypoallergenic

We did a fair yesterday and it was great to see a customer who had bought a cardi from us 2 years ago wearing it to the event and to hear her say it was her favourite alpaca cardigan!

We did the obligatory ‘bobble or pill test’ and were very pleased to see it had been well worn, but wasn’t at all well worn and not a bobble in sight!! See here for more benefits of our FINEST ALPACA!
FYI the customer was wearing a HUMM Alpaca Swing cardigan

HUMM Alpaca Best sellers

Nov 06 2011

We have started our winter season slightly later this year due to the amazingly hot weather we enjoyed late into October (yes, trips to the beach mid October!) but now the winter weather has well and truly set in so we are all reaching for our very lightweight but very insulating finest alpaca cardigans and ponchos.

Our best sellers to date are the sleeved alpaca ponchos – these are SO versatile, they literally fit people from size 8 to size 28. We show at many fairs around the country and to see the delight on people’s faces as they find a garment that truly flatters almost all body shapes, and also gives the wearer style and elegance, is a wonderful experience!

Our stocks are now down to the two colours below, purple and the Designer grey and chequerboard version. Order yours now before they run out!

Ayacucho, Button Collar Sleeved Poncho

Soft, stylish and super flattering!

Wonderful product review….

Sep 30 2011

We recently had this lovely review from a very happy customer who bought the black and grey contrast scarf, so we thought we’d share it with you.

One of the most favourable companies I have ever came across online. Their customer service is second to none. Amanda Ruiz is a credit too her company, letting me know by email every step of the way how my order was getting on and swiftly solving problems that had arisen. Fantastic products and more importantly excellent customer service, a rare thing these days. HUMM make Alpaca Knitwear a trendy new option. Would most definitely recommend *****
