Soft and cozy blend of Peruvian highland wool and superfine alpaca. You get the structure of wool, and the softness of alpaca for the best of both fibres.
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 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.
