A luxurious yarn in an exclusive mix of brushed, superfine alpaca and subtle shiny silk!
Besides being super soft, DROPS Brushed Alpaca Silk has a sophisticated shade card ranging from soft greys to gorgeous reds and purples. As this yarn is feather light and surprisingly warm, it's great for both small and large garments, and it can be knitted relatively fast on larger needles. This yarn is perfect for those who find mohair too prickly as it is gives the fluffy effect without itch. DROPS Brushed Alpaca Silk can be used as an effect yarn when worked together with other yarns. Perfect teamed with a 4 ply for patterns such as Soiree by Emily Foden.
