DROPS Alpaca is a lovely yarn spun from 100% alpaca. It is spun from 3 strands with an extra twist to provide a durable surface. Garments made in this yarn are lightweight and comfortable, super soft directly on the skin, and have a beautiful characteristic sheen. Can be machine washed on wool cycle, we have a swatch washed at 40* and it still looks good. Great for fair isle. Approximately 4 ply weight.
Please note: the pictures and names of the colours really don't do them justice. The colours are gorgeous and have a great depth of tone.
