DROPS Brushed Alpaca Silk + DROPS Cotton Merino

For a bright, light and silky yarn combination, try working together DROPS Brushed Alpaca Silk 01, off white and DROPS Cotton Merino 01, off white.

The result feels surprisingly soft to the touch, and has a knitting gauge of about 14 stitches = 10 cm = 4" using 6 mm = US 10 needles, which is a great 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!
