How We Went From Field To Fashion
Emma has been breeding and farming alpacas for more than four years on Bodmin Moor in Cornwall, working hard to ensure she is producing good quality animals with high welfare standards.
As I started to fill my barn with fleece rather than animals I decided I had to find something to do with it.
I love Cornwall. We wanted to create something that worked with our ethos, that would promote the county and the UK as a producer of amazing products.
That's when Moor Baby was born... Emma Collison, 2016.
We produce high-end babywear made with alpaca fleece. It is a machine washable, naturally self-regulating temperature fabric making it perfectly comfortable for babies to wear, creating garments that look stunning and are beautifully soft.
Alpacas are gentle and hilarious animals, who I have had great pleasure of rearing over the last few years. Their fleeces are beautiful and are incredibly fluffy. The fleece is also super soft and kind to skin.
Alpaca is also temperature self-regulating which means that it will keep you cool when you're warm and warm when you're cold. This is great for babies because the fleece will work with the babies, whose temperature change regularly, so the fabric will keep them warm when they need it and vice versa.
All of our collections are designed by Emma here in Cornwall, We use a traditional style in natural colours so that our designs compliment your baby's outfit. Our yarn is from our own Alpacas, all reared here on our farm. We use a mill in the UK to help us produce our yarn.
We have two ranges of yarn the first is 80% Alpaca and 20% Nylon which gives us the machine washable element. We also have a range which is 75% Alpaca and 25% wool which gives the garment durability and can also be machine washed.
Our products are made in a UK based factory and all our extras such as buttons, hangers and labels are all made in the UK. We think it is extremely important to keep everything UK based to help support local businesses like our own.
It is imperative for us all to support local and UK buisnesses. If we don't support each other then who will ?
