DROPS Lima is a 4 strands yarn a combination of 65% Peruvian Highland wool and 35% superfine alpaca. Fibers are untreated, that means that they are only washed and not exposed to any chemical treatment prior to the dyeing. It provides also a better shape and texture quality.
This yarn is perfect for outdoor garments like sweaters and sportswear, that are usually knitted tight for good shape stability. Hard wearing and durable and it has also the lovely properties from the alpaca, being soft and comfortable.
DROPS Lima contains mixed colours; the wool is manufactured by carding the colours together before spinning, which gives it a mixed effect.
