Within LNKnits we have two brands, namely LNBeanies and LNAndes. Both brands are based upon the principle of high quality, high end materials and fair fashion, designed in Antwerp and hand-knit in Peru. The LNBeanies collection goes from hats, mittens, headbands, scarves … to warm cardigans and sweaters for him, her and the kids. This collection is heavier and more “sporty” than the LNAndes collection. Every LNAndes item is made from a pure alpaca bouclé yarn, giving it volume and keeping it extra light.
The composition differs from product to product. The LNBeanies collection is almost completely made out of 100% baby alpaca. The LNAndes collection on the other hand contains a little bit more polyamide to guarantee the strength and quality of the garment. For these pieces we work with a very soft bouclé yarn and without the extra polyamide (which we really try to keep to a minimum), the knits would lose their shape too quickly and fluff too much too fast. We really want to guarantee the quality of your LN knit.
The scarves Big Bertha, Mini Maria and Long Lucy, together with the accompanying Beanies, and the cardigans Adorable Annie, Cosy Charlene and Cosy Charlotte are comprised of 89% baby alpaca and 11% polyamide (with a blend of silk and linnen in the summer collections).

Yes! On each gift card you will find a unique code you need during the ordering process. After having reviewed and confirmed your order, enter the code in the ‘gift card’ field in the shopping cart when checking out. The amount of the gift card will be deducted from your total purchased price. If the total amount is higher than the value of the gift card, you can pay the surplus using normal payment methods such as credit or debit cards, or PayPal.

You should be very gentle to your handmade knit. However, it may still stretch and fluff a little. You can remove the little fluffy balls, one pill at a time, using a small pair of scissors. Be careful not to damage the fabric by cutting too close to the surface.
To clean your precious knit, we suggest dry-cleaning. But if you dare to take the risk yourself, we recommend using mild baby shampoo as detergent. Let it dry flat, do not hang it vertically. If needed, you can iron your knit using a damp cloth.
Don't ever use plastic or dry-cleaning bags for your alpaca, but use a clean pillow case, a clean paper bag of a carboard box to keep the air circulating around the garment. And like any other knit garment, alpaca clothing should be folded rather than hung to prevent stretching.
Calculate your size by measuring around your head. Then you can select your product size. 52-54 cm corresponds to size S, 55-57 cm corresponds to size M and 58+ cm corresponds to size L.
Yes, that's possible! If you want to put an LN Knit aside we can do this for free for a total of two days. If you want to reserve it for a longer period, we will ask you to pay an advance of 50% for pieces over a 100 euros. Please note that we can only put pieces aside for a maximum of 7 days.
We offer different colors of the beautiful vitor yarn, which is used to knit the scarves such as the Mini Maria, Long Lucy and Big Bertha. There are standard 2 ply on one hank and to get the same structure as the Long Lucy scarf for example, we recommend using 2 balls of yarn at the same time so that you are knitting with 4 ply.
1 ball of vitor = +- 400m
If you want a thinner scarf, 1 ball of vitor is enough. If you would like to have the thicker structure, use 2 balls at the same time. We highly recommend making a sample patch so you can choose which technique you like best.
