DROPS Lace is a premium blend of 70% baby alpaca and 30% mulberry silk, spun into a 2 strand yarn with a generous length of about 400 meters per skein.
The fibres used are untreated, which means that they are only washed and not exposed to any chemical treatment prior to the dyeing. This highlights the fibres’ natural properties, while it provides also a better shape and texture quality. This is lace yarn at its very best: delicately fine and incredibly soft, which makes it perfect for creating lightweight shawls, wraps, and scarves with intricate and decorative motifs. While the suggested tension is small, most lace patterns recommend a much larger needle or hook size so that the lace really stands out. Tension in lace depends on how open or lacy a fabric you want, so the needle/hook size can vary.
