Ally Bee Knitwear


Ally Bee presents exquisitely soft & immaculately constructed British alpaca & select wool knitwear in a collection of scarves, hats, gloves and sweaters for women, exclusive homewares, and a small selection of scarves and gloves for men.

British alpaca yarns are bespoke-spun in a small mill in Dorset for Ally Bee from the annual alpaca clip collected from the region, and crafted by small, family run knitwear manufacturers in the Scottish Borders and the Midlands. Ally Bee pieces speak quiet luxury and are a gift to treasure - in understated contemporary styles made to last beyond one season, and crafted from yarns quite out of the ordinary and with a heart in the British countryside. Many of the pieces in the collection have a touch as soft as cashmere but support a sustainable, British rural industry and have a far gentler impact on the planet. Alpaca yarns in the collection do not contain any dyes, acrylics or polymides usually associated with high street knitwear, instead the designs use beautiful natural colour blends in warm Autumnal tones of Pebble, Grey, Caramel and Cream, with a splash of colour from a small quantity of dyed wool yarns.

Exclusive to Spirit of Christmas is Ally Bee's first range of woven blankets and scarves, crafted from British Bluefaced Leicester wool, made in the Scottish Borders, home of Britain's long-established weaving tradition.

Ally Bee was established in London in 2014, and this will be the label's first offering at Spirit of Christmas. We look forward to welcoming you to Stand GH75, upstairs near Mossiman's Restaurant. Perfect gifts for the fussiest recipients, all with a story to tell quite out of the ordinary!
