Find patterns for DROPS Eskimo

DROPS Eskimo is a soft, thick and easy to use single stranded yarn spun from 100% pure wool, that results in warm and comfortable garments, and it’s ideal for felting.

The fibers are untreated, which means that it is only washed and not exposed to any chemical treatment prior to the dyeing. This highlights the fiber’s natural properties, while it provides also a better shape and texture quality.

In addition to solid colors DROPS Eskimo also comes in mixed colors, printed colors, tweed-colors and degrade colors.
The mix colors are manufactured by carding the colors together before spinning. The printed colors means the yarn has various colors that regularly repeat in random lengths. Tweed-colors has tweed effects spun into the wool, that add both random colors and texture, and make the yarn vary a little in thickness. In the degrade colors there are even transitions from one color to next and when switching skeins in this Eskimo type it's good to chose the end of the next skein starting with the same color repeat as last skein ended with. This way you will get a fancy result with pretty gradual transitions.

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