Favourite yarn

I love this yarn. It knits up beautifully and is machine washable. It’s also very forgiving if you, like me, need to unpick because you’ve mis-read the pattern! I have knitted several Arran cardigans for my great granddaughter and her busy mum loves it as well!

Beautiful colour and so soft

The colour of my wool was gorgeous and beautifully soft, and I’m very pleased with my end product but sadly many of the balls had quite a bit of wastage as the cord was frayed for long lengths. I’m unlikely to select this wool again due to this.

Love this yarn!

I love this yarn. It makes beautiful Arran patterns and this colour 01 off white is just right for these patterns. This yarn is also very forgiving if, like me, you have to unpick and redo - my concentration isn’t what it used to be ????

Really nice to knit up

So far, so good. The yarn is soft, yet robust and east to knit up. Very pleased.

Beautifully soft wool for a jumper

I made a jumper out of this and it crochets up so soft and thick -- a really warm jumper.

Description

WHAT’S HER STORY?

DROPS Big Merino is the sequel to DROPS Merino Extra Fine, spun from extra fine merino wool fibers from free-range animals in South America.

DROPS Big Merino 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.

 

Made in EU

FAMOUS FOR…

The main characteristics of DROPS Big Merino are the softness, volume, elasticity and even result, which makes it ideal for knitting structured patterns such as cables. The yarn is also superwash treated and therefore machine washable and suitable for everyday use.

 

This yarn has an Oeko-Tex® certification (certificate number 25.3.0110), Standard 100, Class I. This means that it has been tested and found completely free from harmful chemicals and that it is safe for human use. Class I is the highest level, and it means the yarn is suitable for baby articles (ages 0-3).
