Drops Cotton Merino - All Colours - Product Description
Drops Cotton Merino is spun from high quality merino wool and the softest, finest cotton. Together, these two popular fibres create a superb combination of properties in terms of softness, fullness and elasticity, resulting in very comfortable garments where the stitches are clearly defined, and the result is neat and even. The yarn is soft on the skin, which makes it especially suitable for children and baby clothing.
Drops Cotton Merino is cable spun from multiple threads to achieve roundness and fullness which also gives the yarn extra elasticity making it great to work with. It is particularly suitable for structure patterns, cables and moss stitch. As in all our merino yarns, the merino wool comes from free-range animals in South Africa and South America.
The wool in this yarn is superwash treated, which makes it good for daily use as it is machine washable. Made in EU, this yarn has Oeko-Tex® certification.
As one of the largest stockists of Drops yarn in the UK, we stock every single colour and shade of the Cotton Merino yarn that Drops produce. The chances are that if there's a shade of Drops Cotton Merino that we don't have, it is because Drops have stopped making it! Supplied in 50g balls, Drops Cotton Merino knits to a gauge of 21 stitches over 28 rows on 4mm needles, and there are approximately 120m / 132yds 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. Most people find that buying the magazines is cheaper than the ink and paper needed to print them out from the Drops website!
