A new and exciting "blown yarn" made from soft baby alpaca and cozy and warm merino wool. Its construction is unique, based on the newest yarn technologies, where instead of spinning, loose fibres of baby alpaca and merino wool are air blown into a tube, which makes the garments made in this yarn about 30-35% lighter than those made with conventionally spun yarns of the same thickness.
Drops Air is - as its name says - a very airy yarn that feels beautiful against the skin, which makes it perfect for accessories, shawls, sweaters and jackets in both textured and cable patterns. Garments made in Drops Air are totally itch-free! Click here to view patterns in Drops Air; all of the patterns by DROPS Design are free!
