Drops Alaska - All Colours - Product Description
Drops Alaska is a classic spun, untreated yarn, made from 100% new wool. The wool fibre is untreated, which means it is not exposed to any chemical treatment prior to being dyed. This highlights the fibre’s natural properties, while also providing better shape and texture quality. Drops Alaska is a triple stranded proven quality yarn, and is one of the staples of the Drops collection, which is as popular today as when it was launched in the mid 1980s! Unsurprisingly, Alaska benefits from extensive pattern support, with a comprehensive range of patterns for women, men, children and accessories. Made in the EU, Alaska has Oeko-Tex certification.
Drops Alaska is available in over 20 different shades, some of which are mixed colours, which means the wool is manufactured by carding the colours together before spinning. As one of the largest stockists of Drops yarn in the UK, we stock every single colour and shade of Alaska yarn that Drops produce. The chances are that if there's a shade of Drops Alaska that we don't have, it is because Drops have stopped making it! Supplied in 50g balls, Drops Alaska knits to a gauge of 17 stitches over 22 rows on 5mm needles, and there are approximately 70m / 76yds in every 50g ball.
