DROPS Big Merino is the sequel to DROPS Merino Extra Fine, spun from extra fine merino wool fibers from free-range animals in South America.
The main characteristics of DROPS Big Merino are the softness, volume, elasticity and even result, which makes it ideal for knitting structured patterns such as cables. The yarn is also superwash treated and therefore machine washable and suitable for everyday use.
DROPS Big Merino is spun from multiple thin strands, which gives the yarn extra elasticity. Is this special construction that makes it extra important to treat the garment right: make sure that you knit with the correct tension and rather use a tight tension than loose. Don't wash your garment too warm, never leave it to soak and let the garment dry flat.
