A new and exciting “blow yarn” made from soft baby alpaca and cozy merino wool. Air’s construction is unique; instead of spinning, the fibres of alpaca and merino are air blown into a tube, which makes the garments knit with this yarn about 30-35% lighter than those made with conventional spun yarns of the same thickness. DROPS Air 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 Air are totally itch-free, which means everyone can wear them!
