DROPS Alpaca je nádherná příze ze 100% lamí vlny, alpaky. Vlákna alpaky jsou klasicky spřádaná, chemicky neošetřená. Před vlastním barvením neprochází vlákna žádnou zvláštní úpravou - jsou pouze vymývána a následně projdou běžným barvícím procesem. Jejich přirozené vlastnosti jsou tak v plné míře zachovány, navíc tento postup podporuje jejich tvarovou stálost a zvýrazňuje strukturu.

Příze je spředena ze 3 vláken se zákrutem navíc pro zvýšení její povrchové odolnosti a je dostupná v široké škále odstínů, od barev jasných až po tlumené a pastelové. V barevnici jsou zastoupeny rovněž přírodní, nedobarvované odstíny a varianty smíchané (mix) - ty vznikají spojením dvou či více barevných vláken již během mykání, spřádány jsou pak jako jedno vlákno s typickým vícebarevným "míchaným" efektem.

Z příze DROPS Alpaca vznikla spousta krásných a různorodých modelů, které najdete i s návody v databázi DROPS. Úplety z této příze jsou lehké a pohodlné, velmi jemné, příjemné i při kontaktu s holou pokožkou a mají nenápadný, typický jemný lesk.

Potřebujete radu?

1) What type of fibers make the DROPS yarns?

Yarn can be made from a large number of natural and synthetic fibers. DROPS carries mainly yarns made from wool, cotton, alpaca, linen, mohair and silk. Each fiber type has its own qualities, and they are often mixed to take advantage of the best properties of each one. Coarse yarn has the advantage of being stronger and more durable, and finer fibers offer more softness and comfort. Here a bit about the main fibers we carry:

Alpaca:
Alpaca fleece is the natural fiber harvested from an alpaca, and it is similar in structure to sheep wool fiber. Its softness comes from the small diameter of the fiber, similar to merino wool. It is a soft, durable, luxurious and silky natural fiber. Yarn made from alpaca fibers does not felt or pill easily, and it can be light or heavy in weight, depending on how it is spun. While similar to sheep’s wool, it is warmer, not prickly, and has no lanolin, which makes it hypoallergenic. Alpacas come in 22 natural colors, with more than 300 shades from a true-blue black through browns-black, browns, white, silver and rose-greys.

Mohair:
This fiber comes from the Angora goats, and it's considered a luxury fiber. Mohair yarn is warm as wool, but much lighter in weight; it is durable, dyes well and does not felt easily. Mohair fibers have also a distinctive luster created by the way they reflect light. Despite being a hard fiber, mohair is usually spun into a very fluffy yarn, resulting in airy and lustrous garments.

Wool:
The wool fibers come from the skin of sheep and are relatively coarse fibers. Two striking characteristics of wool are its susceptibility to heat and its felting property, which is caused by the scales on the surface. Depending upon the breed of sheep, the appearance of the wool varies.
Wool from Merino sheep is considered the finest type of wool, having as characteristics that is finely crimped and soft. All the Merino wool in the DROPS yarns has its origins in South America, coming from sheep that have not been subject to Mulesing.
Pure new wool is wool made directly from animal fleece, and not recycled from existing wool garments. Machine washable wool is wool treated chemically to minimize the outer fuzzy layer of the fibers, and be therefore fitable for machine wash (see Superwash).

Silk:
The silk fiber is a fine continuous fiber produced from the cocoon of a moth caterpillar known as the silkworm. While silkworm is cultivated, the wild or tussah silk is obtained from uncultivated silkworm cocoons. Silk fiber is one of the strongest natural fibers and makes a wonderful knitting yarn. It blends really well with other fibers, especially wool. Silk also dyes beautifully with natural dyes.

Vegetable fibers:
There are several varieties of vegetable fibers, found in the cell walls of plants or vegetables. Of all the varieties, two are recognized as major knitted or textile fibers. They are cotton and linen.
Cotton is the fiber surrounding the seeds in a cotton pod, and it is almost pure cellulose. Cotton is usually white in color but there are green and brown varieties as well. The cotton fiber is most often spun into yarn or thread and used to make a soft, breathable textile that is good for summer clothing and accessories, making a weaker yarn than silk or linen but stronger than wool.
Mercerized cotton is cotton that has been through a mercerization treatment. This treatment gives cotton fabrics and threads a lustrous yarn that is more lustrous than conventional cotton. It is also stronger, takes dye a little more readily, makes the yarn more resistant to mildew and reduces lint. It also may not shrink or lose its shape as much as "regular" cotton.
Linen is a fiber derived from the stalk of the flax plant that is durable and stronger than any other fiber. The linen fiber is relatively soft, straight and lustrous and becomes more beautiful with age. Linen is more comfortable to wear in hot temperatures than cotton, due to the fact that it absorbs moisture better and dries more quickly.

Other materials used in our yarns include synthetic fibers such as acrylic, viscose, polyamide (nylon) and polyester. These fibers are used mostly to give strength to a yarn (like our sock yarn, DROPS Fabel) or a special kind of structure (like our blown yarn, DROPS Air).

nahoru

2) What is polyamide?

The polyamide fibre, commonly known as nylon, is very strong, durable, lightweight, easy to care for (can be machine washed and dried), and elastic, which makes it perfect for blending with other fibres to produce hard-wearing yarns like sock yarn.

Compared to polyester, polyamide is softer and more flexible, but it also absorbs more water and dries slower.

nahoru

3) What type of information can I find on the DROPS yarn labels?

All DROPS yarn labels include information about fiber content (wool, cotton, etc.), weight in grams and ounces, length in meters and yards, washing instructions and symbols (explained here), color number, dye lot number and yarn group information.

nahoru

4) What are the DROPS yarn groups?

All DROPS yarns are classified into 6 different thickness groups (A to F). Yarns in a same group have similar knitting tension/gauge, and can therefore be interchanged in patterns; however the length may be different, so when substituting always calculate the amount of meters/yards needed for the pattern to know the amount of yarn you need to get.

nahoru

5) Can I use a different yarn than the one mentioned in the pattern?

Yes, as long as the yarn can be worked in the same knitting tension/gauge. Always swatch to make sure you get the same number of stitches in width and rows in height as given in the pattern.

Remember that different yarns with different textures, will give the garment different looks. The yardage/length may also be different, so when substituting always calculate the number of yards needed, in order to know the amount of yarn you need.

Read more about how to calculate the amount of an alternative yarn - and how to replace 1 thread of a yarn with 2 or more of another, here.

nahoru

6) What does it mean when a yarn is “Superwash”?

A superwash wool is a special wool product that has been treated or processed in a way that allows it to be machine washable. Many people are afraid to work with wool because it is so easy to shrink (though some shrink wool on purpose) and superwash wool can allow them to work with great fibers without worry. (Read more here).

nahoru

7) What does “Oeko-Tex® certified” means?

The Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 was introduced at the beginning of the 1990s as a response to the needs of the general public for textiles which posed no risk to health. The Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 is a globally uniform testing and certification system for textile raw materials, intermediate and end products at all stages of production. The test for harmful substances comprise substances which are prohibited or regulated by law, chemicals which are known to be harmful to health, and parameters which are included as a precautionary measure to safeguard health.

For more info go to www.oeko-tex.com

8) Where are the DROPS yarns produced?

You can read about where all DROPS yarns are produced in each of the yarns shade cards and in our price list.

nahoru

9) Why are your yarns so cheap?

As Northern Europe's largest brand of hand knitting yarns and designs, we have unique opportunities to work with the very best raw materials and make savings that benefit you. That's why you can buy DROPS yarn 20-30% cheaper than similar products!

nahoru

10) How accurate are the colours on the shade cards online?

When obtaining images for the shade card, we do our best to achieve the highest level of color accuracy. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee how images will appear on your computer screen. Every monitor displays color differently, some colors might look darker than they really are, and some colors might be more saturated on some screens. If you experience that many of the yarn colors looks different on your screen than the actual color of the skeins, you can adjust the setting on your monitor.

nahoru

11) What is a micron? What does super fine / extra fine mean?

The fineness of yarn fibers is measured in microns (thousands of millimeters). Super fine alpaca wool is 26-28 microns. Fine merino wool is less than 21.5 microns and extra fine merino is under 19.5 microns. The less microns the softer and more delicate a quality can be, the more microns the more hard wear the quality will be.

nahoru

12) Why are the colours in my skeins of print yarn different?

The reason why two skeins of a same print yarn look different can be 1) that both skeins are part of different dye lots; 2) that the skeins have been dyed using a technique called "magic print" (the one used for example in DROPS Delight), which provides unique patterns and smooth colour transitions to each skein, meaning also that within one dye lot, lighter or darker varieties might appear. This is no fault or defect, but part of the yarn's character.

nahoru

13) My store doesn’t have the colour I want, what can I do?

If your DROPS store doesn’t have the yarn colour you want, try contacting a DROPS Super Store (the ones with the golden badges) - they will make sure to get a hold of the colour even if they don’t have it in stock themselves. See a list of all DROPS stores here.

nahoru

14) Where can I find a specific dye lot of a colour?

Always try contacting your DROPS store first. If they do not have the dye lot you want we recommend you to ask other knitters and crocheters in the DROPS Workshop in Facebook or Ravelry, which may have the dye lot in their stash and might be willing to part from it.

nahoru

15) Why does my yarn shed?

Yarn sheds because there's not enough twist to hold all of the fibers together. All yarns have excess fibers (from production) that might come off as lint or shedding, in varied degrees that depend on how the yarn is spun. Brushed yarns ("hairier" yarns) like DROPS Melody, have more of these loose fibers than other yarns, and therefore shed more. Shedding also depends on what is worn under or over the garment, and whether this pulls at the yarn fibers. It’s therefore not possible to guarantee that there will be no shedding.

Below are some tips on how to get the best result when working with hairier yarns:

  • When the garment is finished (before you wash it) shake it vigorously so the looser hairs come off. NOTE: do NOT use a lint roller, brush or any method that pulls at the yarn.
  • Place the garment in a plastic bag and put it in your freezer - the temperature will cause the fibers to become less attached to each other, and excess fibers will come off easier. Leave in the freezer for a few hours before taking it out and shaking it again.
  • Wash the garment according to the instructions on the yarn label. Garments worked with hairier yarns usually need to be shaken once dry after washing, so that the hairs rise and any excess fibers can come off.

Hi, is your alpaca cruelty free? https://investigations.peta.org/alpaca-wool-abuse/ Best regards

Autumn Johnson 11.08.2020 - 19:01:

Hey guys! I'm wanting to knit this sweater and I've been looking all over for the right yarn. The original yarn for the pattern is discontinued and it was 80% Acrylic, 10% Nylon, 10% Mohair and fingering weight yarn. I'm looking to go with natural fibers, and I'm looking for softness, and drape (the sleeves are puffed). I'm thinking Alpaca Drop may be the yarn for me, but I'm not sure. Can you help me figure out if it will do what I want or if there's a better option for me.

DROPS Design 12.08.2020 kl. 08:21:

Dear Mrs Johnson, please contact your DROPS Store - even per mail or telephone, you will be helped to choose the best matching yarn for your project. Happy knitting!

Det undrer mig, at prisen på garnet er en del billigere angivet på jeres hjemmeside for butikken Fikse fingre, end det er på deres hjemmeside (har pt tjekket både Cloud og Alpaca)?? Jeg synes ellers altid, at jeres prisangivelser plejer at være samstemmende med butikkernes.

Hi I picked out a bunch of drops alpaca colours on your site for sweater - when I went onto wool warehouse and some of the colours (I used the corresponding numbers from the drops site to the wool warehouse site) looked VERY different between the 2 sites? Which one should I consider correct? thanks Rachel

Kate 21.07.2020 - 09:40:

Do you source from large or small farms in Peru please? Can you guarantee there is no c.r.u.e.l.t.y in the shearing process at the farms you do use? Can you please confirm that the alpacas at the farms you use are free to roam and are not k.i.l.l.e.d for their food at any time during their lives?
