Air is an exciting "blow yarn" made from soft baby alpaca and cozy and warm merino wool. As implied in blow yarn, this quality has an unique construction where instead of spinning, the fibres of baby alpaca and merino wool are air blown into a tube together. This makes the garments made in this yarn about 30-35% lighter than those made with conventional spun yarns of the same thickness.
DROPS Air is a light, airy yarn that feels beautiful against the skin, which makes it perfect for accessories, shawls, sweaters and jackets in both textured and cable patterns. Garments made in DROPS Air are totally itch-free, which means everyone can wear them!
