DROPS Merino Extra Fine is cable spun from extra fine merino wool fibers from free-range animals in and South America. Garments made in this yarn are very comfortable and have a great surface quality. This yarn is gentle on the skin, and therefore great for baby and children garments.
Ideal for textured patterns such as cables and seed stitch, this yarn is superwash treated, which means it's machine washable and suitable for everyday use.
DROPS Merino Extra Fine has both solid and mix colours - mix meaning that the wool is manufactured by carding the colours together before spinning, which gives the shade a mixed effect.
DROPS Merino Extra Fine is spun from multiple thin strands, which gives the yarn extra elasticity. Is this special construction that 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 loose. Don't wash your garment too warm, never leave it to soak and let the garment dry flat.
