Spun as a traditional 4-strands sock yarn, DROPS Nord is made in a combination of 45% superfine alpaca (for the softness), 25% wool (for the warm and shape stability) and 30% polyamide (for the strength and durability).

An easy to knit/crochet yarn, that gives clear stitches and that is perfect for warm, everyday garments, like jumpers, socks, hats and gloves, DROPS Nord is part of Yarn Group A and specially good for patterns designed for DROPS Alpaca, DROPS Baby Merino, DROPS Fabel and DROPS Flora.

This yarn has an Oeko-Tex® certification (certificate number 23.HPE.36896), Standard 100, Class II from the Hohenstein Institute. This means that is has been tested for harmful substances and is considered safe in human-ecological terms. Class II means the yarn is suitable to come in direct contact with the skin to a large extent, such as blouses, shirts, mattresses, etc.


First of all, consider just airing the garment, instead of washing it. If you still desire to wash it, here are some guidelines:

  • Hand wash at 30ºC - separately - with wool detergent without enzymes or optical brighteners.
  • Don’t let the garment soak. Move the garment gently back and forth, do not rub or squeeze it.
  • Rinse the garment until the rinse water is completely clear, making sure the water temperature stays uniform.
  • Do a light centrifugation of the garment (about 800rpm), choosing a program that DOES NOT take in water at the start. Or press carefully the water out of the garment with a dry towel. The garment shouldn’t be twisted or rolled.
  • To dry the garment, shape it and lay it flat - do not hang - ideally on a warm bathroom floor or on top of a drying rack in a room with good air circulation. Never dry the garment in direct sunlight.
  • Don’t tumble dry.

Note: If you are washing a project made with this yarn combined with another, the general guideline is to follow the washing instructions for the most delicate of the yarns you are working with.
