Drops BabyAlpaca Silk - All Colours - Product Description
Drops BabyAlpaca Silk is spun from 3 strands in a combination of the best of two wonderful fibres, being a mix of 70% baby alpaca (for the softness) and 30% mulberry silk (for strength and glossy shine). The fibres are untreated, which means they 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 Baby Alpaca Silk is great for baby garments, is soft against the skin, cooling when hot, and warm when cold. Made in Peru.
Drops Baby Alpaca Silk is available in over 20 different colours, and as one of the largest stockists of Drops yarn in the UK, we stock every single colour and shade of Baby Alpaca Silk yarn that Drops produce. The chances are that if there's a shade of Drops Baby Alpaca Silk that we don't have, it is because Drops have stopped making it! Supplied in 50g balls, Drops Baby Alpaca Silk 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.
