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).

Excellent; so soft!

Ordered the Forest and Olive greens to make my first jumper and am in love with the soft texture. Super easy to crochet -- you'll never drop a stitch again! This website is fast becoming my favourite online shop. I hope some of the other colours (white and navy) will be back in stock soon.

extra marino wool

Thank you so much for your super efficiency, in sending extra wool, having realised I hadn't got enough. I was amazed that even though it was several weeks later and therefore a different batch number, it seems to be the same shade, which is great. Excellent service.
