  • Unique knitting workshop: meet the alpacas

    Posted by Deadly Knitshade on January 29, 2010

    Come and visit! I promise not to eat your hat.

    Who wouldn’t love to hang out with cuddly faced alpacas and knit in the surrounding green of the English countryside while munching on some scrumptious homemade bread? Course you would! Well now you can.

    Purl Alpaca Designs would like to invite you to one of their Knitting Workshops, on 13th February 2010, at their farm near Cambridge.

    You can hang out with the beasts by getting up close and personal with the original fibre providers, enjoy warm welcoming coffee and home-made biscuits at Scotland Farm, and get knitting the unique Purl Alpacas designs with the benefit of tips from one to one tuition from the designer.

    They also include home-cooked lunch made from ingredients that are organic (where possible) and sourced locally. Yum!

    All this and a Purl Alpacas knitting pack.

    Price: £95 per person.
    Time:
    10.30am to 4pm
    Price includes:

    • Knitting pack with 5 balls of wool
    • Home-cooked lunch
    • Biscuits, tea and coffee
    • Knitting tuition
    • Alpaca tour and talks (from people, the alpacas can’t talk)

    Scotland Farm is just outside Cambridge, very close to the A428 at Dry Drayton. Ample car parking available and full directions provided on booking.

    For more workshop info see the Purl Alpacas website.

      The knitting workshop sounds fabulous.

      Thanks for letting us know!

      Will try and talk my other half into looking after the monsters for the day. :)

      This workshop is lovely – I went mid-November & had a wonderful day, although those who ventured out to see the alpaca in the afternoon nearly got blown away. The purl alpaca team are v welcoming & the nosh was excellent. I don’t hold them at all responsible for my car imploding 2 miles away from the farm, and having to be recovered back to Wigan, and I will stop going on about it soon, honest I will.
