Super Soft, but small complaints

The shipping was incredibly fast considering I'm in the US and this is coming from the UK. The yarn itself is super soft and knitted up nicely. The color was a bit more grey than I would have preferred since I ordered beige, but it doesn't matter much since the garment was meant to be a neutral color anyways. One of my balls had a manufacturers knot which unfortunately showed on the RS of my knitted project, so as long as no one looks too closely it'll be perfect. Overall I would definitely buy this yarn again because of how easy it is to work with :).

Description

WHAT’S HER STORY?

DROPS Cotton Merino is a combination of extra fine merino and long Egyptian 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.

 

Made in EU

FAMOUS FOR…

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.

 

This yarn has an Oeko-Tex® certification (certificate number 25.3.0016), 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).
