DROPS Daisy is a soft, non superwash treated yarn, spun from 100% extra fine merino wool. The wool fibers used in this yarn are untreated, which means that they are only washed and not exposed to any chemical treatment prior to the dyeing. This enhances the wool's natural qualities, allowing the fibers to breathe better and providing better shape stability and texture quality.
Made from 4 strands spun together, which give the yarn extra elasticity, DROPS Daisy results in nicely defined stitches, being especially suitable for cable, structure and moss patterns. It is a great fit for patterns designed in DROPS Karisma, DROPS Lima, DROPS Cotton Merino and DROPS Merino Extra Fine (Yarn Group B).
This yarn’s special construction of fine and delicate fibers makes the surface of the garment a little more sensitive and best suited for finer garments (and not for sport jumpers). It is also extra important to treat the garment right: make sure that you knit with the correct tension - so use a tight tension rather than a loose one and follow the care instructions.
As in all our merino yarns, the merino wool for DROPS Daisy originates from free-range, mulesing-free animals from South America.
Hand Wash, max 30°C / Dry Flat
