Drops Alpaca - All Colours - Product Description
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.
Drops offer thousands of free patterns, covering their entire range of yarns, all of which are available to download and print out for free from the Garnstudio website - Garnstudio are the manufacturers of Drops yarn. We also stock the range of Drops Magazines, which contain between 20 and 50 patterns in each, and are priced at just £1 per magazine. Most people find that buying the magazines is cheaper than the ink and paper needed to print them out from the Drops website!
