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!

Great crochet option

I ordered a single skein of this yarn to swatch for a Linda Skuja sweater. I had researched similar yarns and was worried about this one being sticky and/or sheddy. Neither was an issue! It was lovely to crochet with and I finished a nice large swatch with excellent stitch definition. Will be ordering a sweater quantity soon. The light weight of the yarn also makes it nice for crochet since garments tend to be really heavy otherwise.

So soft

Beautiful soft airy yarn. Knits up beautifully!
