DROPS Lima is a 4 strand yarn working up as a double knitting weight. 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 comes in either uni colour which is a solid flat colour or as mixed colour where different shades are carded together before spinning giving the yarn subtle shading.
