Soft chunky yarn

It is soft with a smooth feel to it, knitted up a sweater in this yarn very quickly on size 10 needles. Colour is a lovely sea green. I would buy this again.

Fabulous Wool

I love knitting with this wool - it feels so good and knits up really well. It’s addictive, I find it hard to knit with anything else.

Description

WHAT’S HER STORY?

DROPS Andes is spun from 2 strands in the traditional combination of 65% Peruvian Highland wool and 35% superfine alpaca. The mixture brings out the alpaca silky surface, while the wool gives the yarn better shape stability. The yarn fibers are 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.

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

 

Made in Peru

FAMOUS FOR…

Very easy to work with thick needles and hooks and ideal for felting, DROPS Andes is perfect for winter garments, accessories and interior patterns.
