Very warm

I made this into a poncho using a 5mm crochet hook. I found the colour a little lighter than is represented on the photos given, but I still loved the way it looked with the dark rust colour. Very soft and unexpectedly warm for something so delicate.

Not so recent purchase 😂

It was a while ago i bought this yarn, and I mixed it with some sport weight plan colour yarn. It knitted up beautifully. I was very pleased.

Lovely

I crocheted this up on a 5mm hook and it has a lovely loose effect. Could be used alongside another wool for a stiffer effect.

Besides being super soft, DROPS Brushed Alpaca Silk has a sophisticated shade card ranging from soft beige and gray hues, to gorgeous reds and purples.

FAMOUS FOR…

The most popular yarn for baby photo props.
