DROPS Lima is a 4 strand yarn working up as a double knitting weight. Made from a combination of wool and alpaca, its fibres 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 and provides better shape and texture quality. Lima is perfect for outdoor garments like classic Norwegian sweaters and sportswear, that are usually knitted tight for good shape stability. Hard wearing and durable like any great wool yarn should be, the alpaca gives it softness and a touch of luxury.
Lima contains mixed colours, this means the wool is manufactured by carding the colours together before spinning, which gives the colours a gentle tone.
