The softest alpaca yarn comes from a baby’s first
shearing, generally from around the neck, where it is
fluffiest. It is a soft, fine, durable, luxurious and a
silky natural fibre. Yarn made from alpaca fibres
does not felt or pill easily and it can be light or heavy
in weight, depending on how it is spun. While similar
to sheep's wool, it is warmer, not prickly, and has no
lanolin, which makes it hypoallergenic.
The baby alpaca and silk yarn that we use is spun
from 3 strands in a combination of the best of two
wonderful fibres, being a mix of 70% baby alpaca (for
the softness) and 30% mulberry silk (for strength and
glossy shine). The yarn fibres are untreated, which
means they are only washed and not exposed to any
chemical treatment prior to the dyeing. This highlights
the fibre’s natural properties, while it also provides a
better shape and texture quality.
It is great for baby garments, soft against the skin,
cooling when hot and warm when cold.
The yarns we use
Booties & Shoes
All made from natural yarns such as
cotton, cashmere, Merino wool, silk
and baby alpaca.
Our Baby Merino is spun from 100% merino wool fibres
(19.5 micron) from free-range animals. Not only is it a
super soft and itch-free wool yarn perfectly suited for
delicate baby skin, Baby Merino is also superwash
treated which makes it machine washable and ideal for
daily use. Baby Merino is constructed by spinning
multiple thin strands which gives extra elasticity. Our
Baby Merino yarn is cable spun, which means the
stitches are clearly defined, and the result achieved is
neat and even. Made in the EU, this yarn has Oeko-
Striped baby alpaca, silk and cashmere baby boots
These hand-made baby boots take softness and warmth to a whole new level. We think this
yarn is the ultimate luxury for babies’ delicate skin. They are roomy enough for little toes to
wriggle but the ribbed ankle cuff helps to keep them in place. The natural yarn (baby alpaca,
silk and cashmere) lets baby skin breathe and the look is chic and stylish. The sole and cuff
are in a lovely creamy oatmeal colour and there is a choice of three stripe colours:
soft denim blue
These are all 0-3 months size (4.5in/11.5cm sole), with a cotton BabyDoozle logo tag at the
back of the ankle. They are dispatched in a smart cardboard cube with white tissue paper.
Hand wash and dry naturally.

gorgeous yarn (and in a range of subtle and unusual colours). All boots have oatmeal
coloured sole and rib but the colour options for the main body of the boot are:
light grey with a dark grey line around the sole
light grey with mustard line
creamy olive with a mustard line
dark grey with mustard line or

They are roomy enough to let toes wriggle but the ribbed cuff helps to keep them in place.

ideal gift for a new baby. Sole measures 10cm/4in for 0-3 months size, 11cm for a 3-6 month

Plain oatmeal coloured boots in baby alpaca, silk and cashmere from
tiny baby size.
We thought baby alpaca yarn on its own was the ultimate in soft luxury for baby boots.
Then we tried the extremely decadent baby alpaca with silk and cashmere yarn. Oh my
goodness. You might want to sit and stroke these all day rather than put them on your
baby’s feet – which would be very therapeutic for you, not so much so for the baby. Anyway,
these boots are soft, cosy, stretchy and beautiful. Totally natural, luxurious fibres. We offer
Tiny baby (8cm/3in sole)
0-3 months (4.5in/11cm sole)
3-6 month (5.25in/13cm sole).

A lovely creamy oatmeal colour.

Blue, oatmeal and mustard boots in baby alpaca, silk and cashmere
When we have these stunning little boots in this colour combination at events they always
sell out within an hour. Soft, natural yarn that is light and warm and an eye-catching,
unusual colour combination (pale denim blue and oatmeal with a contrasting mustard line
around the sole). Baby alpaca and silk are fabulous together but the cashmere in this yarn
takes softness to a whole new level. They are roomy enough to let little toes wriggle but
the ribbing around the ankle helps to keep them in place.
There are two sizes;
0 - 3 months (4 inch sole)
3-6 months (5 inch sole).
They are packaged in a smart brown card cube with white tissue paper. Hand wash only
All of the cotton yarns that we use are carefully chosen
for their softness and lightness. They are all 100% of
the finest cotton resulting in a beautifully soft, matt yarn
which is ideal for babies.
This is such a decadent, luxurious yarn, supplied by
Yarnundyed. It is 70% baby alpaca, 20% silk and
10% cashmere, making it an absolute dream both to
knit with and to wear.
They use only longer fleece in all their yarn types
which means that they are able to produce all their
yarns on worsted system. The fibres are washed,
carded and then combed (aligned) before spinning.
Worsted spun yarns form longer staple fibres, are
more luxurious and refined, stronger and will feel
softer and smoother. The use of longer, combed fibre
and the removal of the shorter fibres during the
combing process, significantly reduce pilling in the
Fine and light (4ply) baby boots, plain or striped, in baby alpaca
Stunning little boots for babies, hand knitted with love and care in the softest of warm
natural yarns and a range of plain colours or stripes. These are in soft and subtle blues,
greens or pale butter yellow with contrasting cream on the striped ones. The yarn is a very
fine and light 4ply, 70% baby alpaca (from the first shearing of an alpaca, when the fleece is
softest and fluffiest) and 30% silk. This will keep little toes warm and snuggly whilst letting
the skin breathe and preventing overheating. They are stretchy and soft so little feet can
wriggle and stretch but the ribbed cuff at the ankle helps to keep them in place. Size: 0-3
Hand wash and dry flat

cream and sage green stripes
teal blue and cream stripes

100% baby alpaca boots with ‘fruity’ stripes
No itchiness, just luxuriously soft and warm little boots, hand knitted with love and care
in baby alpaca - from the first shearing of an alpaca when the fleece is softest and
fluffiest. The base colour is oatmeal but the stripes are gorgeous, subtle colours that
remind us fruit smoothies. We have listed them as pink and purple but that really doesn’t
do them justice. The ‘purple’ is a soft grape colour and the ‘pink’ is definitely strawberry
ice cream colour! They give plenty of room for little toes to wriggle but the ribbed cuff
helps to keep them in place. Being a natural yarn, they keep toes warm but allow the
skin to breathe. They are dispatched in a smart cardboard cube with white tissue paper.
They come in two sizes; 0-3 months and 3-6 months.
Baby alpaca and silk baby boots with picot edge
Exquisite little whisper-soft baby boots hand knitted in very fine and light 4ply yarn; 70% baby

keep them in place (and tiny toes warm). They are packaged in a smart brown card box with
white tissue paper and make a perfect baby gift. They come in four subtle colours:
0-3m size 9.5cm sole
Hand wash, no tumble drying.
