A new and exciting "blown yarn" made from soft baby alpaca and cozy and warm merino wool. Its construction is unique, based on the newest yarn technologies, where instead of spinning, the fibres of baby alpaca and merino wool are air blown into a tube, which makes the garments made in this yarn about 30-35% lighter than those made with conventional spun yarns of the same thickness.
DROPS Air is - as its name says - a very airy yarn that feels beautiful against the skin, which makes it perfect for accessories, shawls, sweaters and jackets in both textured and cable patterns. Garments made in DROPS Air are totally itch-free, which means everyone can wear them!
The pure loft and lightness of DROPS Air is fully revealed in the generously sized Western Rider shawl pattern. It is knit on larger needles to increase drape and softness in the fabric. Looking for a more challenging project? Rainy Day Sweater is a textured pullover that is lightweight and fashionable. It looks equally beautiful in a neutral for everyday wear or a colour as a statement piece.
