DROPS Alaska is a classic spun, untreated yarn, in 100% new wool. Untreated wool means that the fibers are only washed, and not exposed to any chemical treatment prior to the dyeing. This enhances the wool's best qualities, while it provides also a better shape and texture quality.

DROPS Alaska launched in the mid 80's and is as popular now as then, being one of the classics of the DROPS collection. DROPS Alaska is a triple stranded proven quality yarn offered in a wide range of colors.

Among the range of colors of DROPS Alaska you will find yarn balls in solid colors and some mixed colors. These mixed colors are obtained by carding the colored fleece together before spinning the yarn, which gives it the beautiful mixed effect.

Its long history and popularity mean that you can find a large number of patterns made with DROPS Alaska, both for clothing for women, men and children as well as accessories.

With 2 yarn balls of DROPS Alaska (one of each color) you can knit a pair of classical norwegian mittens or a hat. 

To make an easy long-sleeved sweater for size L you will need about 14 yarn balls of DROPS Alaska, although this is only an approximation and it is essential to make a tension swatch in the knitting stitch you are going to use in order to calculate the quantity correctly.
