Description

DROPS Air is a fluffy "blown yarn" made of soft alpaca and warm merino wool.

What does "blown yarn" means?

Traditionally, yarn is obtained twisting more or less short fibers (strands of wool, alpaca hair, cotton fibers,...) among them until get a long and consistent yarn.

Thanks to the newest technologies, blown yarn consist in a thin polyamide mesh tube into where fibers have been pressure-injected (or blown) to produce the yarn.

In the case of DROPS Air the fibers that have been blown inside the tube are 65% alpaca and 7% wool.

Garments made with DROPS Air are a 30-35% lighter than other ones made with yarns of the same width but spun with the conventional method. So DROPS Air is perfect to knit large coats, textured sweaters with cables or garments in brioche, beautiful but usually heavyweight.

As they are not twist-spun, blown yarns create garments with no tendency to twist, so they are also great for knitting circular knit jumpers.

DROPS Air is a light yarn that feels great against the skin. Garments made with DROPS Air are completely hypoallergenic, that means that it does not produce itchiness and can be worn by everybody.

To knit a long-sleeved jersey in size L you will need around 7 yarn balls. A large scarf may take you 5 yarn balls. Anyways, remember that the amount of yarn you need will be determined by your own tension gauge. Making a swatch will help you to make a more precise calculation.
