Drops Lace is now sold in 50 g. skeins instead of the former 100 g. skeins (since January 2016). This is the same yarn, it just has a new skein size.

NOTE: Some of our stores might still have 100g skeins in stock. So don’t be surprised if when ordering this yarn you receive a combination of 100g hanks and 50g skeins.

Please adjust your own meters/yardage if your newly entered skeins are the 100 gram size. Any stash skeins already linked to this entry will keep the meters/yardage and skein size they had when originally entered.

Recommended needle size: US 2,5 / 3 mm
Gauge: 4” x 4” / 10 x 10 cm = 28 sts x 34 rows

ABOUT THE YARN:
DROPS Lace is a premium blend of 70% baby alpaca and 30% mulberry silk, spun into a 2 strands yarn with a generous length of about 800 meters per skein.

The fibers used in the composition of DROPS Lace 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, while it provides also a better shape and texture quality.

DROPS Lace is a lace yarn at its very best: delicately fine and incredibly soft, which makes it perfect for creating lightweight shawls, wraps, and scarves with intricate and decorative motifs. While the suggested tension is small, most lace patterns recommend a much larger needle or hook size so that the lace really stands out. Tension in lace depends on how open or lacy a fabric you want, so the needle/hook size can vary.

DROPS Lace contains mixed colours, this means the wool is manufactured by carding the colours together before spinning, which gives it a mixed effect.

Made in Peru.
