A "blow yarn" made from soft baby alpaca and cozy and warm merino wool. Its construction is unique, where instead of spinning, the fibres of baby alpaca and merino wool are air blown into a tube, which makes the garments made in this yarn about 30-35% lighter than those made with conventional spun yarns of the same thickness.
DROPS Air is - as its name says - a very airy yarn that feels beautiful against the skin, which makes it perfect for accessories, shawls, sweaters and jackets in both textured and cable patterns. Garments made in DROPS Air are totally itch-free, which means everyone can wear them! Some pattern suggestion based on our knits: Turtle Dove II by Espace Tricot, and Big Sister by Hintermstein. Both available on Ravelry.
