DROPS Melody is a soft and luxurious yarn made from superfine alpaca and merino wool. Warm and with a mohair-like look, it’s available in a sophisticated shade card ranging from soft beige and gray hues, to gorgeous reds and purples.
Being so soft and light, DROPS Melody is a great choice for oversize garments as well as accessories. It knits up quickly with big needles without the piece becoming heavy and it can be used as an effect yarn together with other qualities, to give garments extra volume and softness.
Note that the colors shown may vary from screen to screen in the same way that shades may vary slightly from dye lot to dye lot.
