Drops Eskimo - Amethyst Mix (36) - 50g - Product Description
Drops Eskimo is a thick, easy to use single stranded yarn that results in warm and comfortable garments, and is ideal for felting. Drops Eskimo is a lovely, soft, round and fluffy yarn spun from 100% pure wool. The wool fibre is untreated, which means it is not exposed to any chemical treatment prior to being dyed. This highlights the fibre’s natural properties, while also providing better shape and texture quality. Made in the EU, Eskimo has Oeko-Tex certification.
The Drops Eskimo range is simply colossal, with over 70 different shades in total. Some shades of Eskimo are mixed colours, which means the wool is manufactured by carding the colours together before spinning. There are printed colours, which means the yarn has various colours that regularly repeat in random lengths, and there are also tweed colours,which have tweed effects spun into the yarn, that add both random colours and texture, and make the yarn vary a little in thickness.
As one of the largest stockists of Drops yarn in the UK, we stock every single colour and shade of Eskimo yarn that Drops produce. The chances are that if there's a shade of Drops Alaska that we don't have, it is because Drops have stopped making it! Supplied in 50g balls, Drops Eskimo knits to a gauge of 10 stitches over 14 rows on 9mm needles, and there are approximately 50m / 55yds in every 50g ball.
Drops offer thousands of free patterns, covering their entire range of yarns, all of which are available to download and print out for free from the Garnstudio website - Garnstudio are the manufacturers of Drops yarn. We also stock the range of Drops Magazines, which contain between 20 and 50 patterns in each, and are priced at just £1 per magazine.
