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 that is ideal for felting!
The wool fibers used in this yarn 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.
A really popular winter yarn, DROPS Eskimo is available in 5 different types of shades: uni colour, a selection of solid colours; mix, where more than one colour is carded together before spinning for a mixed effect; print, where each shade is made of various colours that repeat regularly; tweed, where tweed effects are spun into the yarn to add both random colour and structure (and which make the thread vary slightly in thickness) and degradé, where there are even transitions from a colour to the next. When switching skeins on this last type of shade it is recommended that you choose the end of the next skein starting with the same colour repeat as the last skein ended with. This way you will get a pretty result with gradual transitions.
