DROPS Baby Merino + DROPS Brushed Alpaca Silk

For a popular and super soft black combination, try working together DROPS Baby Merino 21, black and DROPS Brushed Alpaca Silk 16, black.

The result has a knitting gauge of about 15 stitches = 10 cm = 4" using 6mm = 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!

Colours combined: DROPS Baby Merino 21, black + DROPS Brushed Alpaca Silk 16, black
Knitting tension group: 15 - 12 stitches (6 - 7mm)
