Fabel makes the perfect soft sock yarn due to its composition of 75% wool 25% polymide
With one of the largest colour charts in the DROPS assortment, DROPS Fabel is available in 3 different types of shades: uni colour, a selection of solid colours; print, where each shade is made of various colours that repeat regularly and long print, similar to print colours but with longer repetitions of each colour.
Both print and long print colours in DROPS Fabel are produced with a method called “fancy dyeing” that differs from other methods in that each dye lot has small variations in both pattern and nuance. This is not an error, but an element of the yarn’s character.
Keep in mind that the knitted colour samples displayed below show the pattern you get when you knit with a fewer amount of stitches, as on socks. If you make a wider piece, the pattern will look different. As with all jacquard-prints there may be differences in colour shades and pattern within the same dye lot.
