DROPS AIR YARN

No complaints about this yarn. It does as it says - light as air. Knits up well. I have used it instead of Rowan Classic. Not quite finished my garment, but looks good.

Love this yarn

Love this yarn and the colour, I’m using it with a strand of Drops silk mohair and the sweater is so soft and light and fluffy. It’s lovely to knit up. 💕

Love this yarn.

This just became my new favourite yarn, it’s so soft and the colours are wonderful, peacock blue and sky blue perfect for a beach cardigan. I’m not sure I want to knit with anything else now. 😄

Lovely soft yarn

This yarn is super soft and lovely to crochet with. The colours are very true from the pictures on the site.

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!
