Drops Lace Wool and Silk Knitting & Crochet Yarn 100g
An outstanding and beautiful fine 2-ply lace knitting yarn also suitable for crochet - a mix of baby alpaca wool and mulberry silk
DROPS Lace is a lace yarn at its very best: delicately fine and incredibly soft, which makes it perfect for creating lightweight shawls, wraps, and scarves with intricate and decorative motifs.
DROPS Lace is a premium blend of 70% baby alpaca and 30% mulberry silk, spun into a 2-ply yarn with a generous length of about 400 meters per skein.
The fibres used in the composition of DROPS Lace are untreated, meaning they are only washed and not exposed to any chemical process before dyeing. This highlights the fibres’ natural properties, while giving a better shape and texture.
While the suggested tension is small, most lace patterns recommend a much larger needle or hook size so that the lace really stands out. The tension in lace depends on how open or lacy a fabric you want, so the needle/hook size can vary.
DROPS Lace yarn contains mixed colours, this means the wool is manufactured by carding the colours together before spinning, which gives it a mixed effect.
