DROPS Andes A soft and chunky blend of alpaca and wool Content: 65% Wool, 35% Alpaca Yarn Group: E (9 - 11 stitches) / 14 ply / super bulky Weight/length: 100 g = approx 90 m Recommended needle size: 9 mm Knitting tension: 10 x 10 cm = 10 sts x 14 rows Hand Wash, max 30°C / Dry Flat / Feltable DROPS Andes is spun from 2 strands in the traditional combination of 65% Peruvian Highland wool and 35% superfine alpaca. The mixture brings out the alpaca silky surface, while the wool gives the yarn better shape stability. The yarn fibers are untreated, which means that it is only washed and not exposed to any chemical treatment prior to the dyeing. This highlights the fiber’s natural properties, while it also provides a better shape and texture quality. DROPS Andes contains some mixed colours, which means the wool is manufactured by carding the colours together before spinning, which gives it a mixed effect.
