Drops Nepal - All Colours - Product Description
Drops Nepal is a lovely, chunky and luxurious yarn spun in 35% alpaca and 65% wool. This mix accentuates the softness of alpaca, while the wool contributes to the garments’ shape stability. 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 Nepal is spun from 3 strands which gives an exciting and rustic stitch definition. Drops Nepal is an easily knitted and crocheted quality and is also ideal for felting. The felted garments have an even and soft surface.
Drops Nepal is available in over 30 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 Nepal yarn that Drops produce. The chances are that if there's a shade of Drops Nepal that we don't have, it is because Drops have stopped making it! Supplied in 50g balls, Drops Nepal knits to a gauge of 17 stitches over 22 rows on 5mm needles, and there are approximately 75m / 82yds 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!
