Description

WHAT’S HER STORY?

DROPS Alpaca Bouclé is a lovely effect yarn spun in superfine alpaca. Its fibers are untreated, which means that they are only washed and not exposed to any chemical treatment prior to the dyeing. This highlights the fiber’s natural properties, while it also provides a better shape and texture quality.

 

DROPS Alpaca Bouclé contains some mixed colours, this means the wool is manufactured by carding the colours together before spinning, which gives it a mix effect.

 

Made in Peru

FAMOUS FOR…

Doll hair and animal toys!

 

“Bouclé” is the French word for a loop and it refers to the number of small loops of pure alpaca that give the ball its characteristic look and that enhance the softness of the fiber. Spun from 2 strands, the core is a blend of wool and nylon that help give the yarn strength. Garments made in DROPS Alpaca Bouclé are light and fluffy.
