Although DROPS BabyAlpaca Silk is listed as sport weight, this versatile yarn can easily be knit at a tigher 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.

Hand wash, cold (max 30°C / 86F). Dry flat.

You can buy this yarn from (per 50g skein):

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 softness) and 30% mulberry silk (for strength and 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 fibers’ natural properties, while it also provides a better shape and texture quality.

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

Made in Peru.
