  • Air

    Drops Air 

    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.

    70% Alpaca, 23% Polyamide, 7% Wool

    17sts = 4" / 10cm on 5.0mm / US 8 needles

    Drops Baby Alpaca Silk

    Baby Alpaca Silk is spun from 3 strands in a combination of the best of two wonderful fibers, being a mix of 70% baby alpaca (for the softness) and 30% mulberry silk (for strength and glossy shine). Great for baby garments. It is soft against the skin, cooling when hot and warm when cold.

  • Big Merino

    Drops Big Merino 

    DROPS Big Merino is spun from extra fine merino wool fibers from free-range animals in South America. It provides a soft, elastic, and even result, which makes it ideal for knitting structured patterns such as cables. Big Merino is also superwash treated and therefore machine washable and suitable for everyday use. Spun from multiple thin strands gives Big Merino extra elasticity. This special construction makes it extra important to treat the garment right: make sure that you knit with the correct tension and rather use a tight tension than loose. Don't wash your garment too warm, never leave it to soak and let the garment dry flat.

    Made in EU.

  • Lace

    Drops Lace

    Lace is a premium blend of 70% baby alpaca and 30% mulberry silk, spun into a 2 strands yarn with a generous length of about 400 meters per skein. 

    The fibers used in the composition of Lace 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.

    Lace is a lace yarn at its very best: delicately fine and incredibly soft, which makes it perfect for creating lightweight shawls, wraps, and scarves with intricate and decorative motifs. While the suggested tension is small, most lace patterns recommend a much larger needle or hook size so that the lace really stands out. Tension in lace depends on how open or lacy a fabric you want, so the needle/hook size can vary.

  • Sky

    Drops Sky

    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.

    We love Sky because it feels so light that it could float - this is both irresistible to touch and lends fantastic yardage.
