Drops FREE Wintry Patterns

By Amy Sosbe 2 years ago

We’ve put together some great patterns that support two of the new ranges that we now stock – Drops Alaska and Drops Lima. Drops are an excellent brand and are great value for money; their patters are also all free!

Drops Alaska is a 100% wool, triple stranded Aran weight yarn. It’s a proven quality yarn and is one of the classics of the Drops collection and offers a wide range of colours. Drops Lima is a wool and acrylic blend DK yarn and is perfect for outdoor garments like classic fair-isle sweaters and sportswear. It’s hard wearing and durable like any great wool yarn should be, with the added bonus of being soft and comfortable, due to the lovely properties of the alpaca.

You can browse our Lima Mix and Uni Colour and Alaska Mix and Uni Colour ranges and all the shades available on our website.
