Drops Alpaca Boucle - All Colours - Product Description
Drops Alpaca Bouclé is a lovely soft effect yarn spun from 80% alpaca. 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. “Bouclé” is the French word for a loop and it refers to the number of small loops of pure alpaca that give the ball its characteristic look. Spun from 2 strands, the core is a blend of wool and nylon, which helps give the yarn strength, and the combination of alpaca and bouclé provides a super soft yarn with excellent performance and a fantastic effect. Garments made in Drops Alpaca Bouclé are light and fluffy.
Drops Boucle is available in both plain colours and 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 Alpaca Boucle yarn that Drops produce. The chances are that if there's a shade of Drops Alpaca Boucle that we don't have, it is because Drops have stopped making it! Supplied in 50g balls, Drops Alpaca Boucle knits to a gauge of 17 stitches over 22 rows on 5mm needles, and there are approximately 140m / 153yds in every 50g ball.
