DROPS Nepal is a lovely, chunky and luxurious yarn spun in 35% superfine alpaca and 65% Peruvian Highland wool, a mix that accentuates the softness of alpaca while the wool contributes to the garments’ shape stability. Both fibers are untreated, which means that they are only washed and not exposed to any chemical treatment prior to the dyeing. This highlights the fibers’ natural properties, providing also a better shape and texture qualities.
Spun from 3 strands, which gives an exciting and rustic stitch definition, DROPS Nepal is an easily knitted/crocheted quality which is also ideal for felting, resulting in garments that have an even and soft surface.
DROPS Nepal contains mixed colours, this means the wool is manufactured by carding the colours together before spinning, which gives it a mixed effect.
Made in Peru
Wonderfully soft and elastic and just great for knitting. The result is always even and really warm; I've knitted a poncho and it's perfect for keeping warm. It doesn't scratch much, however, I would probably not choose it for a jersey which is put on directly against the skin - but for poncho, vests, shawls etc. where one can have something else on underneath.
