ABOUT THE YARN:
DROPS Lima is a 4 strands sport yarn, and a continuation of our great success and bestseller DROPS Nepal. Made from a combination of 65% Peruvian Highland wool and 35% superfine alpaca, its 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, while it provides also a better shape and texture quality.

Lima can be used with advantage for outdoor garments like classic Norwegian sweaters and sportswear, that are usually knitted tight for good shape stability. This hard wearing and durable wool quality is combined with the lovely and comfortable properties that the alpaca is known for. A sport yarn with a little bit more luxury!

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

Made in Peru.

Hand Wash Only - this yarn will felt.
