ALL-BRITISH natural fibre knitwear label, Ally Bee, was launched in early October 2014. Crafted in the softest British alpaca and select luxury British wool yarns, ready-to-wear women’s sweaters and accessories are designed in London and made in the Scottish Borders. Styles are uncontrived modern classics for everyday wear. The brand celebrates British quality, luxury and provenance from fibre to garment.
Formerly a lawyer, Ally Bee Founder, Alison Baker, says,
“I fell in love with British alpaca. I saw its great potential for luxury ready-to-wear knitwear but it was virtually unchartered territory. So I began from scratch to make a bespoke yarn that was soft, light and robust, on par with cashmere and fine merino. My alpaca is hand- sorted from the clip of herds grazed in Devon and Dorset and spun on traditional wool spinning machinery recalibrated for delicate alpaca fibre."
