The box contains - 5 balls of Drops Alpaca Yarn
Drop Alpaca is a lovely yarn spun from 100% alpaca. The alpaca fiber is untreated, which means it is not exposed to any chemical treatment prior to being dyed which also makes it great for felting. This highlights the fiber’s natural properties, while also providing better shape and texture quality. Drops Alpaca is spun from 3 strands with an extra twist to provide a durable surface, and is available in many colours, from the vibrant to the more subdued.
Garments made from Drops Alpaca are lightweight and comfortable, feel super soft on the skin, and have a characteristic gentle sheen. Drops Alpaca is available in a massive range of over 50 different shades.
As one of the largest stockists of Drops yarn in the UK, we stock every single colour and shade of Alpaca yarn that Drops produce. The chances are that if there's a shade of Drops Alpaca that we don't have, it is because Drops have stopped making it!
Supplied in 50g balls, Drops Alpaca knits to a gauge of 23 stitches over 30 rows on 3.5mm needles, and there are approximately 167m / 182yds in every 50g ball.
