A soft and chunky blend of alpaca and wool
DROPS Andes is spun from 2 strands in the traditional combination of 65% Peruvian Highland wool and 35% superfine alpaca. The mixture brings out the alpaca silky surface, while the wool gives the yarn better shape stability. The yarn fibers are untreated, which means that it is only washed and not exposed to any chemical treatment prior to the dyeing. This highlights the fiber’s natural properties, while it also provides a better shape and texture quality.
DROPS 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, DROPS Andes is perfect for winter garments, accessories and interior patterns.
Made in Peru
ANDES is a lovely yarn to knit winter accessories with. The project gets wonderfully thick and warm. Great to knit with.
Incredible yarn! The family loved the soft scarves I crocheted with it.
Beautiful yarn bought green and powder pink and knitted a throw.
Fabulous wool to knit with. I made a super king size bed throw in Christmas Red, lovely and heavy for the colder nights. I'm about to start another for my son who wants one too!
