Description

WHAT’S HER STORY?

DROPS Alpaca is a lovely yarn spun from 100% superfine alpaca from Peru. The alpaca fiber is untreated, which means that it is 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.

 

This gorgeous alpaca yarn is spun from 3 strands with an extra twist to provide a durable surface, and it’s available in many colours, from the vibrant to the more subdued. Solid, natural and mixed tones. The last are manufactured by carding the colours together before spinning, which gives it a mix effect.

 

Made in Peru

FAMOUS FOR…

Garments made in this yarn are lightweight and comfortable, super soft directly on the skin, and have a nice characteristic sheen.

 

You can also hold two strands together and use a 5mm needle/hook to create something extra thick and warm.

The 6736 burgundy the colors look lighter on the picture . Reason for I’m about to order something else to matched with.

The Overall experience is all right. But it should be a discount for international shipments if the customer is already in your list.
