DROPS Alpaca Bouclé is a lovely soft effect yarn spun in alpaca. The yarn fibers are untreated, which means that 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.
“Bouclé” is the French word for a loop and it refers to the number of small loops of pure alpaca that give the ball its characteristic look. Spun from 2 strands, the core is a blend of wool and nylon, which helps give the yarn strength, and the combination of alpaca and bouclé provides a super soft yarn with excellent performance and a fantastic effect. Garments made in DROPS Alpaca Bouclé are light and fluffy.
DROPS Alpaca Bouclé contains some mixed colours, this means the wool is manufactured by carding the colours together before spinning, which gives it a mix effect.
