DROPS Cotton Merino is a combination of exclusive merino wool and beautiful, long Indian cotton fibers. The yarn is very pleasant to work with and provides comfortable garments with clear and regular stitches. The wool is Superwash treated and very gentle on the skin, which makes it suitable for baby and children's clothing. DROPS Cotton Merino consists of many thin strands spun together, which gives the yarn a roundness and fullness, making it especially suitable for cable, structure and moss patterns.

We have chosen not to card the merino wool and cotton together. This makes the coloring process more demanding, but highlights each of the fibers properties in a better way, while at the same time achieving more vibrant colors and textures. The merino fibers used in the yarn are 19.5 micron in diameter, which means they are very thin and classified as "Fine" fibers. The thickness of wool fibers used for knitting yarn vary between 17 and 28 micron, where anything below 23 is considered itch-free.

As in all our merino yarns, the merino wool originates from free-range animals in South Africa and South America.
