DROPS Lima is a 4 ply sport yarn, a thinner version of DROPS bestseller yarn Nepal.
Made from a combination of 65% Peruvian Highland wool and 35% superfine alpaca, its fibers are untreated, which means that they are only washed and not exposed to any chemical treatment prior to the dyeing. This highlights the fibers’ natural properties, while it provides also a better shape and texture quality.
DROPS Lima is perfect for outdoor garments like classic Norwegian sweaters and sportswear, that are usually knitted tight for good shape stability. Hard wearing and durable like any great wool yarn should be, it has also the lovely properties from the alpaca, being soft and comfortable.
DROPS Lima is a sport yarn with a touch of luxury! It shows mixed colours, this means the wool is manufactured by carding the colours together before spinning, giving it a mixed effect.
