I have a cupboard full!

This is my absolute favourite yarn. I knit baby garments for a living, and this is my go-to yarn. The alpaca is very soft and light, and does not itch. I have it in almost every colour.

Pink drops air

This is my second ball of this yarn and it’s beautifully soft and fluffy but the colour isn’t quite so good. It’s a bit patchy between pink and white rather than an overall uniform colour

Description

WHAT’S HER STORY?

An exciting “blow yarn” made from soft baby alpaca and cozy and warm merino wool. As implied in blow yarn, this quality has an unique construction where instead of spinning, the fibres of baby alpaca and merino wool are air blown into a tube together. This makes the garments made in this yarn about 30-35% lighter than those made with conventional spun yarns of the same thickness.

 

Made in Peru / EU

FAMOUS FOR…

DROPS Air is a light, airy yarn that feels beautiful against the skin, which makes it perfect for accessories, shawls, sweaters and jackets in both textured and cable patterns. Garments made in DROPS Air are totally itch-free, which means everyone can wear them!
