Drops Merino Extra Fine - All Colours - Product Description
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 special construction of Drops Merino Extra Fine, made of spinning multiple thin strands gives it extra elasticity, also meaning that is very important to use the correct tension with this yarn, to avoid the garments stretching.
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 We generally recommend working rather tight than too loose with this yarn.
Superwash treated and machine washable, and suitable for everyday use.
DROPS Merino Extra Fine contains mixed colours, which means the wool is manufactured by carding the colours together before spinning, which gives it a mixed effect. Made in EU, this yarn has Oeko-Tex® certification.
