DROPS Cotton Merino
A superwash yarn for all seasons!
DROPS Cotton Merino is made in a combination of extra fine merino and long cotton fibers. Its DK weight and ideal for garments for all the family.
DROPS Cotton Merino is made in 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 colours and textures. Superwash treated and very gentle on the skin, DROPS Cotton Merino is a great choice for baby and children’s clothing.
Made from many thin strands spun together, which give the yarn roundness and elasticity, it’s especially suitable for cable, structure and moss patterns. This special construction also makes it extra important to treat the garment right: make sure that you knit with the correct tension - so use a tight tension rather than a loose one. Don't wash your garment too warm, never leave it to soak and let the garment dry flat.
And as in all our merino yarns, the merino wool originates from free-range, mulesing-free animals from South America.
