DROPS Big Fabel, the amazingly soft and comfortable sock yarn!

The sequel to our DROPS Fabel yarn, spun in 4 strands of the same good quality, only thicker and in skeins of 100g. DROPS Big Fabel is a versatile yarn with a wide range of applications and superwash treated, which makes it machine washable and easy to care for. The yarn is spun with winter socks in mind, but is equally suitable for any other project.

DROPS Big Fabel comes in solid, printed and mouline colours. In the case of print colours, the yarn is made of various colours that repeat regularly in random lengths; and in the mouline version the thread consists of two different shades of yarn plied together.

The print colours in this yarn are dyed with a method called “fancy dyeing”, that differs from other methods in that each colour party has small variations in both pattern and nuance. This is not an error, but an element of this yarn’s uniqueness.

The colour samples show the pattern you get when you knit with a fewer amount of stitches, such as on socks. If you knit or crochet bigger garments the pattern will look different.

Made in EU. This yarn has Oeko-Tex® certification.
