WHAT’S HER STORY?
DROPS Nepal is a lovely, chunky and luxurious yarn spun in 35% superfine alpaca and 65% Peruvian Highland wool, a mix that accentuates the softness of alpaca while the wool contributes to the garments’ shape stability. Both fibers are untreated, which means that they are only washed and not exposed to any chemical treatment prior to the dyeing. This highlights the fibers’ natural properties, providing also a better shape and texture qualities.
Made in Peru
Spun from 3 strands, which gives an exciting and rustic stitch definition, DROPS Nepal is an easily knitted/crocheted quality which is also ideal for felting, resulting in garments that have an even and soft surface.
DROPS Nepal contains mixed colours, this means the wool is manufactured by carding the colours together before spinning, which gives it a mixed effect.

A great combination to get a Yarn Group D thickness yarn, is to work DROPS Nepal together with DROPS Kid-Silk. The result will give garments that are warm and soft, have good shape stability and a delicate brushed feel. You will get different results according to which colours of DROPS Kid-Silk and Nepal you choose to combine. There are lots of possible combinations – and we cannot wait to see yours!
The knitting tension resulting of this combination is 13 sts = 10 cm in width, using needle 7, which is a perfect fit for our Yarn Group D patterns.
