    DROPS Nepal is a lovely, chunky and luxurious yarn spun in 35% alpaca and 65% wool. The 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. The mix accentuates the softness of alpaca and the wool contributes to the garments' shape stability. The quality is spun from 3 strands which gives an exciting and rustic stitch definition. DROPS Nepal is an easily knitted/crocheted quality and is also ideal for felting. The felted garments have an even and soft surface. DROPS Nepal contains mixed colors, this means the wool is manufactured by carding the colors together before spinning, which gives it a mixed effect. Made in Peru.
