DROPS Big Merino is the sequel to DROPS Merino Extra Fine, spun from 100% merino wool fibers (19,5 micron) from free-range animals in South Africa and South America.

The main characteristics of DROPS Big Merino are the softness, volume, elasticity and even result, which makes it ideal for knitting structured patterns such as cables. The yarn is also superwash treated and therefore machine washable and suitable for everyday 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.
