DROPS Baby Merino + DROPS Brushed Alpaca Silk

For an incredibly soft combination, in a rich maroon shade, try working together DROPS Baby Merino 51, bordeaux and DROPS Brushed Alpaca Silk 24, rust.

The result has a knitting gauge of about 15 stitches = 10 cm = 4" using 6 mm = US 10 needles, which is a perfect fit for our Yarn Group D 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!
