DROPS Kid-Silk + DROPS Lima

Get a gorgeous mauve shade in silk and alpaca by working together DROPS Kid-Silk 05, heather and DROPS Lima 4088, orchid.

The result is warm and soft, with a knitting tension of about 16 stitches = 10 cm using 5 mm needles, which is a perfect fit for our Yarn Group C patterns.

Remember however that knitting tension varies from person to person and that the suggested needle size is only a guide. You can adjust the needle size to get a different tension - or match the tension recommended in the pattern you are working with. Just make a swatch!

Colours combined: DROPS Kid-Silk 05, heather + DROPS Lima 4088, orchid
