Like bunny rabbits fur!

Ohhh.....lush! Huge joy to use, luxurious, and a delight to hook up a delicate vintage shawl. Total convert, I now don't want to use anything else. Ever

Great service

Happy with my new purchase of baby alpaca silk, I have previously used this brand. It knits up lovely.

Description

WHAT’S HER STORY?

DROPS BabyAlpaca Silk is spun from 3 strands in a combination of the best of two wonderful fibers, being a mix of 70% baby alpaca (for the softness) and 30% mulberry silk (for strength and glossy shine). The yarn fibers are untreated, which means 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.

 

Made in Peru

FAMOUS FOR…

DROPS BabyAlpaca Silk is great for baby garments. It is soft against the skin, cooling when hot and warm when cold.
