Description

DROPS BabyAlpaca Silk is a yarn that blends the best of two extraordinarily wonderful fibers, mulberry silk, and baby alpaca. This blend is pure smoothness (due to 70% baby alpaca) and shine (due to 30% mulberry silk, which also brings strength to the blend).

The fibers in DROPS BabyAlpaca Silk yarn balls are untreated. They have only been washed and have not been exposed to any chemical treatment before dyeing. This highlights the natural qualities of the fiber, and it also provides a better shape and texture quality at the same time.

The fiber of baby alpaca comes from the first shear of the alpacas from the Peruvian highlands. Baby alpaca is a super soft wool, and it belongs to the group of fibers with a micron size equal to or less than 23 microns. That means that it is extremely light and soft. Although the alpaca is not as elastic as merino wool, it is a warmer natural fiber, very strong, and with great durability. So, the blend of baby alpaca and silk gives us a resistant thread, long-lasting, and perfect to knit warm and light garments.

DROPS BabyAlpaca Silk is soft in direct contact with the skin, fresh when it is warm and warm when it is cold. Also, it does not shed hair, so it is perfect for baby garments.

To knit a baby romper or a set of pants and jacket for a new-born, you will need 4 yarn balls of DROPS BabyAlpaca Silk.

You can also make adult garments. To knit a long-sleeved pullover in size L, you may need 9 yarn balls.

Remember that these are only reference indications. It would help if you made a tension swatch to calculate the exact yarn amount you will need according to your own tension and the chosen stitch pattern.

DROPS BabyAlpaca Silk is perfect for knitting together with a strand of mohair and making light and airy sweaters like Ranunculus by Knit Cafe Midori or Love Note by Tin Can Knits.

Although this yarn is sport weight for its meterage, this thin thread gives good results worked in projects that ask for fingering weight yarn.
