DROPS Baby Merino is spun from extra fine merino wool fibers from free-range animals in South America. A super soft and itch-free wool yarn, it is perfectly suited for delicate baby skin. The yarn is also super-wash treated which makes it machine washable and ideal for daily use.
DROPS Baby 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. Don't wash your garment too warm, never leave it to soak and 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.
