Spun from multiple thin strands of 100% extra fine merino wool, which give the yarn its elasticity - DROPS Big Merino’s main characteristics are its softness, volume, elasticity and even result, which makes it ideal for knitting structured patterns such as cables.
It is this special construction of the yarn that makes it extra important to use the correct tension in your project, so use a tight tension rather than a loose one. DROPS Big Merino is also superwash treated and therefore machine washable and suitable for everyday use; but when washing your garments you must take extra care and follow closely the care instructions.
DROPS Big Merino is spun from fibers from free-range, mulesing free animals from South America and is Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified.
Care Instructions: Machine wash on gentle cycle 40°C / Don’t use fabric softener / Dry Flat

Merino Aran wool
Very warm soft and easy to work with. You may need more wool than your pattern states so get a couple of spare balls.
