DROPS Brushed Alpaca Silk is a luxurious yarn for delicate garments. It is made of soft superfine combed alpaca and shiny mulberry silk, creating a pleasant yarn, light and fluffy.
The color palette of DROPS Brushed Alpaca Silk has more than 20 tones, from a range of soft beiges and grey hues, to spectacular and attractive reds and violets.
If you are looking for a yarn to knit quickly and with big needles, but that results in a light garment, DROPS Brushed Alpaca Silk is your choice, without doubt. Light as a feather, elegant for the silk and incredibly warm thanks to the alpaca, this yarn can be used alone or blended with another yarn to get the fluff effect.
To knit a light and comfortable long-sleeved sweater with this luxurious yarn you will only need 6 yarn balls for L size. Remember that this is only a suggestion: your own tension and the pattern that you choose will modify the amount of yarn balls needed.
