You spent nine months keeping your pea in the pod cosy. Now that your petit pois has popped, it’s time to cook up another way.
PEA (Pure English Alpaca) should do the trick. Made of yarn spun from lightweight fleece sourced from a herd of alpaca that graze in the Mendip foothills of Somerset, the raglan-sleeve tunics, garter-stitch sweaters, ponchos, beanie hats and scarves are super soft and wonderfully warm.
The collection is hypoallergenic and naturally coloured in muted greys, whites and browns.
All other babies will be green with envy.
