Drops Alpaca Bouclé is a lovely soft yarn spun in alpaca. Bouclé is the French word for a loop and that's just what this yarn has; a lot of small loops in pure alpaca.
The binding thread is a blend of wool and nylon which helps to give the yarn strength. The combination of alpaca and bouclé provides a super soft yarn with good use features and a fantastic effect. In garments, it is light and airy. Very well suited for accessories, elegant edges and details but also to larger garments. Try it for baby outfits and experience the fullness and softness..
You may use Alpaca Bouclé for all Drops patterns written for Alaska, Silke-Alpaca, Big Fabel, Bomull-Lin, Lin and Nepal. Remember that different yarn have different texture and user characteristics..
