Made from a combination of 74% baby alpaca, 8% merino wool and 18% polyamide, DROPS Sky is super soft and luxurious, with a feel that’s similar to DROPS Air, but a much more complex tube-like structure that allows the yarn to be lightweight, breathable and very durable.

Perfect for big projects like blankets, ponchos, cardigans and jumpers; and for cosy accessories like shawls, hats and scarves, DROPS Sky results in garments with a lovely texture when knitted in classic stocking stitch and it gives also a great result in both structure and cable patterns.

Yarn substitute

I searched the internet for a replacement yarn to finish a project since the yarn that I had used was discontinued and no longer available. Biscotte Yarns had the necessary match for the project which was promptly sent. They were friendly, affordable and accurate in their description of their yarn. Well done!
