A new and exciting "blow yarn" made from soft baby alpaca and cozy and warm merino wool. Its construction is unique, based on the newest yarn technologies, where instead of spinning, the fibres of baby alpaca and merino wool are air blown into a tube, which makes the garments made in this yarn about 30-35% lighter than those made with conventional spun yarns of the same thickness.

DROPS Air is - as its name says - a very airy yarn that feels beautiful against the skin, which makes it perfect for accessories, shawls, sweaters and jackets in both textured and cable patterns. Garments made in DROPS Air are totally itch-free, which means everyone can wear them!

Soft and light as a drop of air. I look forward to the beautiful sweater, still in test, that it will become. I thank Biscotte Yarns for hooking me up with it!

I’m anxious to start using the Yarn but the pattern that I’m using it for I don’t know the stitch so I’m not going to mess up the Yarn until I know the stitch perfectly but I’m anxious to get started

So soft and luxurious!!

i ordered this for a Cozy Rib Ski Cowl pattern that i found online. i live in Los angeles so i will like never use the cowl, BUT it was the most fun project I have done to date, it looks SO GOOD and this was the exact yarn that was recommended and i completely understand why. it is so soft and yummy but also very easy to work with. i want to make another one or find more uses for this yarn. it's really great.
