Combine DROPS BabyAlpaca Silk and DROPS Kid-Silk

If you are looking for a super soft and delicate yarn alternative, try combining DROPS BabyAlpaca Silk with DROPS Kid-Silk. The result, which belongs to Yarn Group C, will have a subtle shine and color texture, specially if you choose to combine two colors that are slightly different, like the ones shown here.

This example shows DROPS BabyAlpaca Silk 6235 and DROPS Kid-Silk 08:

The knitting gauge resulting of this combination is 17 sts = 10 cm = 4" in width, using needle 5½ = US 9, which is a perfect fit for our Yarn Group C patterns. Just make sure to always follow the knitting/crochet gauge indicated in the pattern you are working with.

Your wool is superb but you do people like myself a disservice No patterns for traditional two needle knitting

I would like to knit one of your patterns which is knitted in DROPS cloud. I would like to substitute drops air for drops cloud, but am unable to find the yardage of drops cloud as you no longer seem to stock it. Could you let me know how much drops air I would need to replace drops cloud. Thank you

Dear Mrs Davies, you will find under the discontinued yarns list all informations about DROPS Cloud, you should also try our yarn converter in the pattern. Happy knitting!
