Although DROPS Alpaca is listed as sport weight, this versatile yarn can easily be knit at a tighter gauge if preferred. Used as a sport weight yarn, the result is lofty and drapey, while used as a fingering weight yarn the knitted fabric is firmer and more dense.

DROPS Alpaca is a lovely yarn spun from 100% alpaca. 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 quality is spun from 3 strands with an extra twist to provide a durable surface, and it’s available in many colors, from the vibrant to the more subdued. Solid, uncolored eco, natural and mixed tones. The last are manufactured by carding the colors together before spinning, which gives it a mix effect.

DROPS Alpaca has a large, comprehensive and varied range of patterns available in the DROPS collection. Garments made in this yarn are lightweight and comfortable, super soft directly on the skin, and have a nice characteristic sheen.

m = mix color
eco = spun in the Alpacas natural colors only, no dyes added
