DROPS Cotton Merino is a combination of extra fine merino and long cotton fibers. We have chosen not to card the merino wool and the cotton together, which highlights each of the fibers properties in a better way, while at the same time allows to achieve more vibrant colors and textures. And as in all our merino yarns, the merino wool originates from free-range animals in South America.
Made from many thin strands spun together, which give the yarn roundness and elasticity, it is especially suitable for cable, structure and moss patterns. 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 loose. Don't wash your garment too warm, never leave it to soak and let the garment dry flat.
Very pleasant to work with, DROPS Cotton Merino provides comfortable garments with clear and regular stitches. The wool is superwash treated and very gentle on the skin, which makes it suitable for baby and children clothing.
Note that the colors shown may vary from screen to screen in the same way that shades may vary slightly from dye lot to dye lot.
