DROPS Alpaca + DROPS Kid-Silk

Everybody loves combining DROPS Alpaca with DROPS Kid-Silk - but have you ever tried this deep purple combination? You get it by working together DROPS Alpaca 4400, dark purple with DROPS Kid-Silk 16, dark purple.

The result is soft and elegant, with a knitting gauge of about 16 stitches = 10 cm = 4" using 5,5 mm = US 9 needles, which is a perfect fit for our Yarn Group C patterns.

Remember however that knitting tension varies from person to person and that the suggested needle size is only a guide. You can adjust the needle size to get a different tension - or match the tension recommended in the pattern you are working with. Just make a swatch!

Colours combined: DROPS Alpaca 4400, dark purple + DROPS Kid-Silk 16, dark purple
Knitting tension group: 17 - 16 stitches (5 - 5.5mm)

Wondering how to care/wash for projects in this yarn combination? A general guideline is to follow the washing instructions for the most delicate of both yarns, but you can read more specific info about how to wash the most common yarn combinations here.
