DROPS - Silk
At LindeHobby, we have only the best of the best and when it comes to silk yarn, DROPS Garnstudio and Du Store Alpakka are in the absolute top class. The one thing that makes silk so special is its unique ability for temperature control. That makes the silk ideal in many different types of knitwear: like shawls, ponchos, tops, dresses, scarves, hats, baby knitwear and more. It cools you down during warm weather and warms you up during cold weather. Although silk is the integral element of all our different kinds of silk yarn, the qualities look very different in their appearances, and they are also best suited for different types of knitwear. Common to all types is the high quality which always ensures good results for our customers.
In our different models, the silk is mixed with mohair, mulberry silk, and baby alpaca. This blend gives the yarn a unique mix of softness and strength. Our most popular silk blends are alpaca and mulberry as well as mohair as they come in a variety of colours and can be used for many different garments. For example, the alpaca is one of the world's most exclusive fibres, which is why it was used only by the Inca kings in Peru. Moreover, the alpaca isn't itchy either and it's three times warmer compared to ordinary wool!
In our product overview, you can easily see the recommended needle thicknesses for the different qualities, so you always end up with just the product you imagined. There are also clear washing and drying instructions for the different kinds of yarn, which is very important to follow. The different silk types do not react the same when washing and drying, so it is essential to follow the instructions every time.
