A thick and easy to use single stranded yarn that results in warm and comfortable garments, and it’s ideal for felting. DROPS Eskimo is a lovely, soft, round and fluffy yarn spun from 100% pure wool.
The yarn 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.
DROPS Eskimo contains mixed colors, this means the wool is manufactured by carding the colors together before spinning, which gives it a mixed effect. It also has printed colors, which means the yarn has various colors that regularly repeat in random lengths. The DROPS Eskimo tweed thread has tweed effects spun into the yarn, that add both random colors and texture, and make the yarn vary a little in thickness.
Made in EU. This yarn has Oeko-Tex® certification.
