HUMM Alpaca Best sellers

Nov 06 2011 Published by under Product focus

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!

A dear friend of mine told me about Humm. When I saw the Ayacucho poncho I loved the styling and particularly the checkerboard pattern. I bought the poncho, the scarf and the wrist warmers all by the same designer, Brandon Mably. It was so easy working with the company and my things arrived with no problem at all. Amanda Ruiz is a delight to work with and I wish her all the best with this company.

I came across Humm at a recent Christmas Fair for Macmillan Cancer Support, and fell in love with the Chequerboard poncho. Just such fun, and also something to keep me warm in the coming winter months. I think it will also come into its own on a cool spring day. I am sure I will live in it! There’s no doubt I will be back to purchase some more of your lovely items.

Then how about this latest one about the black poncho…alpaca and bling? Yes, bring it on!!!!

Me and bling? Yes please!

Hello all at Humm, I have just received my beautiful Sleeved Poncho and wanted to let you all know how delighted I am with it!!! The colour and style is so flattering and since I received it (in record time BTW!!!) I have not taken it off. It is such a flexible garment – I love that you can chuck it on to do the school run, or glam it up with a belt and some bling!! I love mine so much, I have just ordered one for a friend’s belated Christmas and Birthday present! Thank you all – and no doubt I will be in touch again xxx

Warm and chunky-knit cardigan!

Received cardigan today, as promised, and very pleased.. Lovely knitwear. I look forward to ordering from you again soon. Many thanks for all your help.

Thank you Louise for your second purchase, and for your lovely reviews!

HUMM alpaca cardigan

Lovely lagoon colour!

This is now my second Colca cardigan from HUMM and I am really thrilled with them. The colour is fantastic, the cardi is very useful and I may well come bback and get another one in a new colour! And the HUMM knit is not as thick and chunky as I thought it was when I first saw it in the brochure – it is lightweight, lovely and soft and warm!

Now for our celebrity review! Doug Richard from BBC’s Dragon’s Den

Doug Richard's favourite scarf!

Like everything HUMM sells, the scarf is a delight. I like soft scarves and usually buy cashmere but this alpaca is as soft as they say and rather trendy as well…

Big chill and I need to warm up!

Nov 29 2010 Published by under Product focus

Wow! This weather is f-f-freezing, as I type I have to confess I am wearing my HUMM Alpaca fingerless mittens as even the central heating isn’t warming up my extremities….but the real reason for today’s post is this:

I am freezing and have just donned our best selling item, the HUMM Alpaca Poncho.

The HUMM Alpaca poncho, AKA the BLANKET! (photo taken before The Big Freeze!)

You may have seen adverts for those strange things like a blanket that you can watch the telly in and it has arm holes – what are they called..? Snuggies or something. Well do you fancy doing the school run in a Snuggie? No is my answer but I sure need to warm up today and as you can tell the heating isn’t really doing it for me.

As I work in the office I really do need something like a blanket but something that looks rather more elegant as well as being functional, hence why I threw on the sleeved poncho, which is the next best thing and in fact I am now calling it my ‘walking blanket’.

The best thing of all is that you can put a thick jumper on underneath so you can do that all important layering Dr Sarah Jarvis was recommending the other day on the BBC.

The HUMM Alpaca Sleeved ponchos are £170, and are a true wardrobe investment as I have had mine now for 3 years and can count not ONE bobble on it. Now that’s what you call value for money.

PS. The alpaca sleeved ponchos are amazing as they fit UK sizes 8-28 and we have many happy customers spanning the size range. The open flaps at the side are what make it such a flattering shape.

The man and his snood!

Nov 21 2010 Published by under Product focus

Here is handsome husband of Amanda Ruiz, founder of HUMM, sporting the grey and black alpaca snood and ‘guapo’ indeed he looks, however he also looks very happy with the pretty Colombian lass on his arm who is also wearing a snood – we got you on camera!!! Well actually that is one of the winning shots from our Latin Fusion Fashion Show held on Nov 6th – Eddy (Colchester’s premier salsa teacher) and Manuel did a great salsa routine where the snoods took centre stage too!
