A new yarn just added to our shelves from Garnstudio. Drops Brushed Alpaca Silk is incredibly light and lofty and yet perfect for warm and cozy garment and accessory projects.

Super soft DROPS Alpaca Silk has a sophisticated shade card ranging from soft beige and gray hues, to gorgeous reds and purples. The yarn?s feather light and surprisingly warm features make it suitable for both small and large garments, and it can be knitted relatively fast on larger needles.
