DROPS BabyAlpaca 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). The yarn fibers are untreated, which means they are only washed and not exposed to any chemical treatment prior to the dyeing. This highlights the fiber’s natural properties, while it also provides a better shape and texture quality.
DROPS BabyAlpaca Silk is great for baby garments. It is soft against the skin, cooling when hot and warm when cold.
Made in Peru
LITTLE NOTE FROM ME ABOUT THIS YARN: When I just start knitting, I used to use baby alpaca from Rowan, but as you know it is very expensive, and it is still a little itchy when touch against bare skin. A year ago I found out about DROPS, which is lots of professional crafter's favourite. The baby alpaca silk yarn is the first yarn I purchase from them, they are not only is a lot lower on price, but the quality is just the best ever!! The baby alpaca wool they use is a lot finer, and heavenly silky smooth with added mulberry silk, with great texture and bounce when knitted! I've become a DROPS fan ever since.

As an architect, crafting was just a hobby. My grandma used to knit for me when I was little, I never forget that warm feeling of love in every stitch, it's so precious and delicate. It's something machine can not make, and money can not buy.
I'm in love with natural fibres, when you put a lot of time and effort in making something special, you want the best quality material. Like many people I start with Rowan and Debbie Bliss, which is very well known and great quality, but after spend hundreds and hundreds on blankets I start searching around for alternatives.
I found out about DROPS in 2013, it is very popular for professional crafters who produce quality items. I placed my first order for baby alpaca silk, and fell in love ever since.
I tried every line of their products over the months and they never fail to surprise me with joy. The price is a lot lower and the quality is simply the best! And there are thousands of free patterns on their website!
It is like fate to become DROPS retailer, it gives me flexibility of time to be there for my child, share my finding with all of you, and surrounded by people with the same passion. I'm extremely thankful for all of your support since 2014, we wouldn't have made this far without you!
