DROPS Alpaca is a lovely yarn spun from 100% alpaca. The alpaca fibre is untreated, which means that it is only washed and not exposed to any chemical treatment prior to the dyeing. This highlights the fibre’s natural properties and provides a better shape and texture quality.
This quality 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 and solid, natural and mixed tones. The latter are manufactured by carding the colours together before spinning to give a mixed effect.
A large and varied range of patterns for Alpaca are 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.
