Spun as a traditional 4-strands sock yarn, DROPS Nord is made in a combination of 45% superfine alpaca (for the softness), 25% Peruvian Highland wool (for the warmth and shape stability) and 30% polyamide (for the strength and durability).
An easy to knit/crochet yarn, that gives clear stitches and that is perfect for warm, everyday garments, like jumpers, socks, hats, gloves and much more!
