DROPS Andes is a loose 2 ply yarn spun from 65% Peruvian Highland wool and 35% superfine alpaca. The mixture brings out the silky alpaca, while the wool gives the yarn better shape stability and bounce. The yarn fibres are untreated, which means that it is only washed and not exposed to any chemical treatment prior to the dyeing. This highlights the fibres natural properties, while it also provides a better shape and texture quality.
Andes contains some mixed colours, which means the wool is manufactured by carding the colours together before spinning, which gives it a mixed effect.
Very easy to work with thick needles and hooks and ideal for felting, Andes is perfect for winter garments, accessories and interior patterns. Works up quickly with great squidge!
