Drops Lima - Black (8903) - 50g - Product Description
Drops Lima is a 4 strand sport yarn, and an evolution of the incredibly successful, bestseller yarn, Drops Nepal. 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 Lima is often used successfully for outdoor garments, such as classic Norwegian sweaters and sportswear, that are usually knitted tight for good shape stability. This hard wearing and durable wool quality is combined with the lovely and comfortable properties that the alpaca is known for. A sport yarn with a little bit more luxury!
Drops Lima 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 Lima yarn that Drops produce. The chances are that if there's a shade of Drops Lima that we don't have, it is because Drops have stopped making it! Supplied in 50g balls, Drops Lima knits to a gauge of 21 stitches over 28 rows on 4mm needles, and there are approximately 100m / 109yds 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!
