Description

DROPS Sky is a "blown yarn" made of warm baby alpaca and soft 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 Sky the fibers that have been blown inside the tube are 74% baby alpaca and 8% merino wool, which gives us an exceptionally soft and warm yarn.

DROPS Sky is in structure and composition a yarn very similar to DROPS Air, but without the hair halo covering the cylindrical structure of the yarn. This complex structure allows it to be a lightweight, breathable and highly durable DK weight yarn.

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

To knit a long-sleeved sweater in size L you will need around 7 yarn balls of DROPS Sky. 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.

This yarn is available in 19 different colors.
