Although DROPS Baby Merino is listed as sport weight, this versatile yarn can easily be knit at a tigher gauge if preferred. Used as a sport weight yarn, the result is lofty and drapy, while used as a fingering weight yarn the knitted fabric is firmer and more dense.

ABOUT THE YARN:
DROPS Baby Merino is spun from 100% merino wool fibers (19,5 micron) from free-range animals in South Africa and South America. A super soft and itch-free wool yarn, it is perfectly suited for delicate baby skin. The yarn is also superwash treated which makes it machine washable and ideal for daily use.
The yarn is spun from multiple thin strands, which gives extra elasticity, and this special construction makes it extra important to treat the garment right: Make sure that you knit with the correct gauge and rather use a tight gauge, than too loose. Don’t wash your garment too warm and never leave it to soak. Let the garment dry flat.
The yarn is cable spun, which means the stitches will be clearly defined, and the result achieved will be neat and even.
Made in the EU.
Oeko-Tex® certificate 25.3.0110
