DROPS Andes

DROPS Andes is spun from 2 strands in the traditional combination of 65% wool and 35% alpaca. The mixture brings out the alpaca silky surface, while the wool helps to have a 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.

DROPS Andes is very easy to work with thick needles and hooks, and it is ideal for felting.
