DROPS Baby Merino is spun from 100% merino wool fibers (19,5 micron) from free-range animals in South Africa and South America. A super soft and itch-free wool yarn, it is perfectly suited for delicate baby skin. The yarn is also superwash treated which makes it machine washable and ideal for daily use.
The yarn is spun from multiple thin strands, which gives extra elasticity, and this special construction makes it extra important to treat the garment right: Make sure that you knit with the correct tension and rather use a tight tension, than too loose. Don't wash your garment too warm and never leave it to soak. Let the garment dry flat. The yarn is cable spun, which means the stitches will be clearly defined, and the result achieved will be neat and even. Find patterns for Drops Baby Merino here.
