Exception service and quality

Truly impressive responsiveness and friendly attentive service. Delighted with the yarn and the finished item. When you spend many hours on a project you do not want to skimp on the quality of the raw material. Thank you to Team Knitted Home, I shall return again. Norma R

Lovely yarn

My only slight negative was that the cream seems ever so slightly finer than the other colours. I just want to get away from using man made fibres and thus was a perfect alternative for the blanket I was making.

My opinion of Drops Merino Extra Fine - 36

I liked the colour very much, but was somewhat surprised with the thickness of the DK. This could be because I nearly always use the 4ply. There have been a few imperfections, but that often happens. I feel this project is not for me and I will willingly return to my favourite Drops 4 ply !

Description

WHAT’S HER STORY?

DROPS Merino Extra Fine is cable spun from extra fine merino wool fibers from free-range animals in and South America. Garments made in this yarn are very comfortable and have a great surface quality. This yarn is gentle on the skin, and therefore great for baby and children garments.

 

DROPS Merino Extra Fine 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. Don’t wash your garment too warm, never leave it to soak and let the garment dry flat.

Made in EU

FAMOUS FOR…

Ideal for textured patterns such as cables and seed stitch, this yarn is superwash treated, which means it’s 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).
