We have a new yarn in store today! DROPS Cloud is a deliciously soft “blow yarn” made from baby alpaca and cozy merino wool. Its construction is unique; instead of spinning, the fibres of alpaca and merino 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 Cloud feels beautiful against the skin, which makes it perfect for blankets, big scarves, shawls, thick sweaters and long jackets in both textured and cable patterns. Garments made in DROPS Cloud are totally itch-free, which means everyone can wear them!

Super Bulky: 10 sts per 10 cm/4″ on 9 mm (US 13) needles
