This new wonderful "blow yarn" from the brand Garnstudio Drops Design is made up of soft itchfree baby alpaca and merino wool yarn blend. Its construction is exclusive, made with the most recent technologies, wherever rather than spinning, the fibers of baby alpaca and merino yarns are pressure air blown into a tube, which make the garments created with this wool alpaca composition approximately 30-35% lighter.

Drops Air made in 12 colors is a fantastic fiber mix that feels marvelous against the skin, works nicely on your knitting needles or crochet hooks, that makes it excellent to crochet or knit a jacket, bulky sweater, shawl, scarf or accessories in both rough and cable pattern. Clothes crocheted or knitted in DROPS Air are not only light but also completely itch-free, which means everybody will both love knitting and wearing Drops Air knits.

Light Pink --> More Like a Soft Cool Violet Color

I absolutely adore DROPS Air yarn! It is soooo very soft and warm and light. I imagine over time it will felt a bit just from use, but I love it! I do wish the Light Pink was a warm pink rather than a cool ... not really pink ... more like a very pale, bright, violet-magenta-purple. I know that's not very specific. Ok here's specific: if you have Copic Markers, then it is very similar to RV-63 (Red Violet) "Begonia" if you saturate the swatch you make. The yarn also has some lighter flecks that are more like V-01 (Violet) "Heath". I hope this will be helpful - computers and cameras have so much that gets changed in transition from one device to another.
