Drops Merino Extra Fine

Drops Merino Extra Fine

DROPS Merino Extra Fine is cable spun from 100% merino wool fibers (19,5 micron)from free-range animals in South Africa and South America. 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.

Garments made in this yarn are very comfortable and have a great surface quality. DROPS Merino Extra Fine is gentle on the skin, and therefore great for baby and children’s garments.

DROPS Merino Extra Fine is ideal for textured patterns such as cables and seed stitch. The yarn is superwash treated and machine washable, and suitable for everyday use.

DROPS Merino Extra Fine contains mixed colours, this means the wool is manufactured by carding the colours together before spinning, which gives it a mixed effect.

Made in EU.
