DROPS Nepal is a lovely, chunky luxurious yarn spun in 35% alpaca and 65% wool, a mix that accentuates the softness of alpaca while the wool contributes to the garments’ shape stability. Both 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 providing better shape and texture.
Spun from 3 strands, which gives rustic stitch definition, Nepal is an easily knitted/crocheted yarn which is also ideal for felting, resulting in garments that have an even and soft surface. Nepal contains mixed colours, this means the wool is manufactured by carding the colours together before spinning, which gives it a mixed effect.
